Tire recycling, it turns out, is big business and there are hundreds of companies who are involved in various aspects of it. From flooring, tire recycling, shoes, road paving, and tire derived fuel, there are several innovative ways that our tires are saved from rolling into a local landfill.
Just how big is this business? Well, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA), there are at least 110 new products that contain recyclable tire rubber and there are some 12 million scrap tires per year used in highways.
