Tires that have expired their safe and useful life are recycled. We ship the ‘spent’ tires to a reputable recycler. The tires are shredded or made into crumbs and are used to produce new products. Here are a few examples of recycled tires:
- Rubberized asphalt concrete (RAC) for “green road” highways, for running track fields
- Combusted as fuel to power furnaces and potentially enough retrievable oil to ease consumer demand.
- Protective clothing, shoe soles
- Child safety environments like cushioned playground mat
- Drain pipes
- Office supplies
