    Recycle your Tires

If you have tires that you need to dispose of let the Waste Exchange go to work for you. Tell us the estimated quantity that you have and your location and it will try to match you directly to a local recycler. (This is a free service). Please note that when disposing of scrap tires there is sometimes a "tip fee" charged by the person collecting your tires. A tip fee is a “fee to collect scrap tires” that is used to offset the material handling costs.

Tire Recycling Process

Most people in the tire recycling business are involved in the collection, sorting and grading of tires. This process encompasses collecting scrap tires from numerous sources, then sorting the tires for reuse or recycling. Tires are sorted into:
1) Salvageable tires: These are tires that can be repaired/retreaded and sold as Used Tires or Tire Casings
2) Un-Salvagable tires: These scrap tires would then go for recycling by the following processes:
  • Tire Slitting into Tire Parts
  • Tire Chipping or Shredding into Tire Chip, Shred or TDF
  • Tire Granulation into CRUMB Rubber
  • Tire Pyrolysis
