This is not a city or a farm, it’s a tire dump.
If you’ve flown on an airplane before, chances are good that you’ve sat in the seat by the window and peered down at the grid structure that makes up our cities and agriculture. Rows of corn and blocks that makes up cities bisected by highways and train tracks. All rather uniform and fascinating to look at. This is not a city or a farm, it’s a tire dump. This dump was organized by now defunct, Magnum d’Or Resources, a company that took government money and failed to turn these tires into fuel. The concept was to take in tires, shread them and then send them out as TDF, “tire-derived fuel”. (Story on Magnum) Geocycle another Colorado based recycling company, does a good job of recycling tires and has helped clean up Colorado’s large population of tire dump cities.

So, next time you peer out the window of an airplane, look for the city dump.
