Amador Tennis Club has partnered with RecycleBalls.org to keep used tennis balls out of the landfill. Nationwide, approximately 125 million used tennis balls wind up in America’s landfills every year. That is 20,000 metric tons of methane-producing, near non-decomposable rubber waste (tennis balls take 400 years to decompose). U.S. tennis players recognize this as a significant environmental problem that no longer represents their sport in 2019.
Locally, you can drop off your used tennis balls at the Argonaut High School tennis courts in Jackson any time. There is a convenient drop chute next to the shed door.
