Tire Recycling

We’ve all seen at country gas stations—or worse yet, out in the countryside—piles of seemingly abandoned tires. These eyesores can actually be recycled into fuel or rubber. Tire recycling is a difficult process, but it’s better than having the tires end up in landfills or out in the country

For tire recycling, tires must be disassembled. The rubber and steel are melted down to be used in other products. Tires can also be recycled by being ground down into fine granules, which are then used as mulch. Artificial turf sometimes uses a backing of rubber from recycled tires.

We have been manufacturing tire-processing equipment for years. Our sophisticated system can meet your entire tire recycling needs. Contact us below to discuss what our equipment can contribute to your tire recycling program.
