The recycling industry has evolved significantly over the past 30 years and tire recycling specifically has become an important part of the management of our natural resources. The development of engineered products made from recycled tires has allowed for use across multiple industries.
While the use of recycled scrap tire derived products changes the dynamics of responsible resource recovery and use, their application is generally incorporated into existing industry segments with a long track record of protocols and best practices. Recycled scrap tire rubber (crumb rubber) is used for a multitude of purposes found in our every day lives. From playgrounds to paving and up on the roof top, you will find crumb rubber in places you never expected.
These beneficial uses reduce demand for natural rubber and newly produced synthetic rubber which helps save resources for future generations. We are glad you have chosen to explore ways to contibute to a better planet. Our conservation and responsible reuse of this valuable sustainable resource makes for a better planet and a brighter future for us all.
