The UK disposes of a million tyres a week. Since 2006, the Government has banned sending scrap tyres to landfill, and burning tyres is definitely no longer an option! So all old tyres have to be recycled, by companies like Yes Waste Tyre Recycling.
What happens to old tyres?
- Most tyres are first ground down to into small pieces.
- This is then separated into the various parts, including rubber, synthetic and natural fibres, and steel wire.
- Once separated it is cleaned to remove dirt, oil etc
- The various elements are then recovered, either into new tyres or other products including roads.
How are old tyres recycled?
If you’ve been or done anything today, you probably did it on old tyres. Recycled tyres are used for all sorts of uses, from carpet underlay to roads, and training surfaces to children’s playgrounds.
In the North of England, a project to resurface the A7 road in Cumbria using recycled tyres is being “rolled out” across the county.
