The US generates over 300 million tires a year that need to be properly disposed of and recycled.  That is more 800,000 tires a day. To put that into perspective, every year the US generates enough tire waste that it could wrap around the world more than 6 times.  In addition to the sheer volume, tire waste is challenging to deal with.  Tires take up a lot of spaces; they are heavy; they do not easily ship; they hold water which creates mosquito and disease control issues; and if the tire catches on fire it is really bad for the environment.  In many states it is illegal to landfill whole tires and you have to use a licensed tire waste service provider that can properly manage and process the tires.  And then there’s the liability concerns.  If your tire waste ends up at an illegal dumpsite, you can be financial responsible for the environmental cleanup.

Why deal with the headaches or take the risk of not using a dependable and licensed service provider? We’ve been in business since 1983, focused on collecting, processing, and recycling tire waste.  We provide a reliable collection service with a team of professional drivers, we maintain the necessary hauling and processing permits, and we are insured.  We have dedicated customer service and dispatchers that are focused on the daily collection routes.  We collect from over 2,000 retail, commercial, industrial, and government locations, and process over 40,000 tires a day.
