Technical Training Mock Inspection

Station 12 (XX Recycling Center): Check out the Tire Pile

Here attendees encountered a tire pile. The pile was measured and it was determined, using the tire conversion chart (PDF, 203 KB), that there were 560 tires in total.

[18 feet x 12 Feet x 7 feet]=1512
1512 / 27 = 56 cubic yards
10 Tires x 1/cubic yards x 56 cubic yards = 560 Tires
