Why You Should RECYCLE Your Tyres?
Tyres are among the largest and most problematic sources of waste, due to the large volume produced and their durability. Those same characteristics, which make waste tyres such a problem, also make them one of the most re-used waste materials, as the rubber is very resilient and can be reused in other products.
So start implementing the three R’s: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.
Drive more carefully – especially in terms of cornering, accelerating and breaking – and keep your tyres at the advised pressure level to extend their lifespan on your car
Some recycling companies collect them for shredding – the resulting rubber is then either processed into new items or used for soft landings in children’s play areas.
