Architect reuses discarded rubber tires and makes playgrounds for kids

Waste is mostly dumped into landfills. Everyone thinks that it is the waste management work or the Government’s role to think about reuse or recycle the wastes. It leads to a lack of accountability and responsibility in the community. Rubber tires are also a major part of this waste.
