Tyre Recycling Ideas

Due to the developments in new tyre technology, every company is making an attempt to manufacture a tyre that outperforms and lasts longer than its competition. With the advance in durability and wear resistant characteristics of these tyres, so too has grown the environmental awareness of tyre manufacturers and retailers who have put environmental concerns at the forefront of the tyre industry. This has resulted in responsible manufacturers and resellers paying for the recycling of tyres and the reduction of waste going to landfill, or worse, just being dumped in our precious environment.

Tyre recycling is simply the recycling the tyre that cannot be reused in a vehicle due to its unrepairable damage and wear. Because of the high composition of metal and rubber used in manufacturing a tyre, it poses a high risk to the environment. If a tyre is disposed in waterlogged soil, it will contaminate the soil around it. The toxins would then percolate inside the soil and hence pollute the underground water table. This is why tyre manufacturing companies are taking up various CSR activities to reduce the toxins and saving the environment from contamination.

There are various interesting ways to reuse tyres and promote environmental responsibility. Take a look at some of these great uses for recycled tyres.

1. A Round Tyre Table

A circular table is always a mark of style in many living rooms. Use your creativity to add aesthetics to the tyres and put it in a place where it becomes a talking point for your home decor.
