Tire Up-Cycling

Transforming our consumer goods into products we already use is the best way to preserve resources for the future and reduce our waste today.

Tires are durable and versatile. Cut, punched, and modified tires have agricultural, marine, trucking and construction applications.

When a tire is no longer suitable for reuse or up-cycling they can be chipped into rubber mulch. The process requires no water and has no airborne particulate byproduct.

Chipped tires can be used for playground mulch or pressed into soft play surfaces, running tracks, and flooring tiles.
