In recent years, shared bikes and electric bicycles spread in China because they make it easier for urban residents. Still, the environmental problems they cause have also attracted public attention.
"There has been a mature industry chain of recycling and reusing the metal parts of used shared bikes and electric ones, but the recycling and reuse of their tires is still a problem has yet to be solved," said Meituan staff member Qin Hao.
"We aim to solve this problem in an environmentally peaceful way, while providing better playing sites for children in remote mountainous areas," added Qin.
