Synthetic turf fields have an 8-10 year average lifetime and produce a large volume of waste, much of it toxic. An average synthetic turf sport field of 80,000 square feet is comprised of 40,000 pounds of mixed plastic turf and 400,000 pounds of infill – usually tire waste and silica sand. In   volume, this amounts to 400 cubic yards, the equivalent of   almost fourteen 30-cubic yard dumpsters of infill. The   materials that make up synthetic turf carpet systems   contain aquatic and human toxins.
