Tire recycling is the process of recycling waste tires that are no longer suitable for use on vehicles due to wear or irreparable damage. These tires are a challenging source of waste, due to the large volume produced, the durability of the tires, and the components in the tire that are ecologically problematic.
Because tires are highly durable and non-biodegradable, they can consume valued space in landfills. If waste tires are improperly managed, they may cause. In 1990, it was estimated that over 1 billion scrap tires were in stockpiles in the United States. As of 2015, only 67 million tires remain in stockpiles. From 1994 to 2010, the European Union increased the number of tires recycled from 25% of annual discards to nearly 95%, with roughly half of the end-of-life tires used for energy, mostly in cement manufacturing.
In 2019, we started the large-scale tire processing plant for the efficient disposal of bulk waste tires. With our tire shredding facility, we can now handle approximately 100 tons of tires per day. We typically receive and process tires in 53ft semi-trailers, which we unload into our tire processing facility.
Typically, we will empty your trailer within a day and most customers have multiple trailers and pick up and empty one when they drop a full trailer. We can also set trailers for you to fill, and haul your tires to our facility. Trucks/Trailers are weighed in at our main facility address. They will then be directed to the tire processing location which is in proximity.
We can handle passenger car tires, Semi tires, farm tires, skid-steer, and forklift tires. We currently do not accept OTR tires or oversize (more than 4ft) diameter tires. Furthermore, we can provide proof of destruction certificates for tires that have to be destroyed.
