We take our environmental responsibility seriously and that includes recycling old tyres.
Our old tyres are transported to an EPA approved factory where the tyres are recycled through a process called pyrolysis.
Pyrolysis is the process of heating the tyres to high temperatures without oxygen until the tyre breaks down into its main components. Steel, oil, and carbon. The steel is sifted out, melted down and reused. The oil is used as fuel. The carbon is used as an additive in the making of glass.
This is the most environmentally sensitive way we have found of disposing of used tyres and is far better than the alternative of dumping tyres in landfills.
The charge for tyre recycling is $5 including GST per tyre.
