Working Towards A Greener Tyre Industry
Here at Tawse Tyres, we care for our environment and take tyre recycling seriously & we appreciate the impact that our busy, modern lifestyles can have on our planets environment. We therefore take every step possible to ensure that we all make the minimum impact on our ecosystem when it comes to the recycling your motoring products.
Many products can be recycled and we believe that it is in all of our interests as individuals to take responsibility and make every effort we can to take as much care of our planet as possible. As you will see below, recycling of old product is not necessarily straightforward but we can help the motoring industry by taking great steps to ensure we look after our planet and keep costs to a minimum for all of us motorists. Used tyres accumulate in their millions every year and present a serious environmental problem. At present, tyres are almost impossible to recycle economically and are virtually indestructible - as a result millions of tyres are simply dumped every year around the world but you will help by recycling your products with us to so that they can be transformed as waste material into marketable products such as;
- New tyres
- Elasto-polymer based rubber products
- Industrial insulation
- Road pavement
- Industrial and domestic flooring
- Geotextiles for retaining walls and embankments
- Converting waste to energy as tyre-derived fuel.....to name but a few.
There are many other savings to be had from tyre recycling. Recycling rubber is a cheaper and more energy-efficient option than producing virgin materials allowing a saving on production cost and helping to keep motorists costs down. The resulting lower production costs of tyre-derived products create savings on greenhouse gas emissions and help conserve natural resources that would otherwise be wasted. Our hope is that the collection and return of tyres and other motoring products for recycling will help reduce the current practices of landfill and help promote a greener tyre industry.
