USED TREADMILL BELTS - any good uses for them? Answered
I fix gym equipment, so I throw away quite a few used treadmill belts. some of them are in good shape but just got too dirty to be useful anymore (friction problems). seems a shame to throw out all that plastic, surely there are some good uses...can anyone think of some? I just installed 8 today and hauled away the old ones.
In the past i have screwed them to the bottom edge of garage & bay doors to act as an extra weather seal - helps prevent the cold air from rushing in those air gaps.
the belts have a pvc topcoat and textile/woven fiber bottom. I wonder if any recyclers would take them...i hate dumping stuff in landfill.
Wasnt sure where to post - resources, free stuff, Green....they would all apply really...
