Why Tire Recycling Is Important

Tires are some of the worst landfill offenders due to their durable composition and sheer volume, which has resulted in many landfills limiting the amount of tires they accept. When tires are placed in the backyard or even in a junk pile at the landfill, they become an environmental problem. That is because they can trap methane gas in them, which can the leak through the landfill liners used or any surface and pollute the soil as well as the ground water. That's why it is so important to avoid sending those tires to the dump.

Fortunately, tire recycling is becoming more prevalent to help pick up the slack, with old tires being turned into asphalt, shoes, basketball courts, playground flooring, and even art. They can also become a crumb rubber . In some cases, old tires can be reused for tire-derived fuel, or TDF, which is a highly effective alternative to fossil fuels for power. And, it produces a higher amount of energy than either oil or coal.

At 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, we believe in taking what's old and making it useful again. Spare yourself the hassle of disposing unwanted tires and give us a call instead. With proper tire recycling, we can help protect the environment and give you back your space.
