What happens to my tires?

All tires that are brought to the factory for disposal are recycled or re-used for a maximum benefit. Scrap tires that are no longer road-worthy are shred in our state-of-the-art facility. The shredded tire material becomes environmentally-friendly Tire Derived Aggregate (TDA) such as R.-T.E.A., a larger-sized tire derived aggregate from our Green Aggregate Fill product line.

Civil Engineers used Tire Derived Aggregate, including R.-T.E.A., for "green" construction applications like roadway bedding, embankment support; backfill material for septic systems, basements, and stormwater management; vibration mitigation and other purposes.
