The UK produces approximately 55 million waste tyres per year! Burning tyres can cause pollution, releasing toxic smoke and chemicals and as such, if not disposed of or recycled in the correct manner can seriously harm the environment.
Recycled tyres are granulated so that the various materials can be recovered. The metal is recycled normally, but the rubber crumb is sometimes used to make sports surfaces and safety mats for children’s play areas. It has many other uses, too, ranging from carpet underlay to the production of rubberised asphalt for roads.
Select A Skip UK Ltd are fully licensed to organise the safe collection and disposal of any vehicle tyre you may have.
