Common questions asked:
1. Do you pay for scrap tires?
No, we do not pay for scrap tires.
2. Why do you charge for scrap tires when you turn around and sell products that you make from them?
We charge for disposal, because of the enormous cost to buy, operate and maintain our equipment. The market for tire derived products is not large enough to create enough demand for products to allow the selling price to cover all of the associated production costs. Consequently, we need to charge the person disposing of the scrap tires to subsidize the end products and make them affordable to the consumer.
3. I've heard that they put ground tires in asphalt that is used to build roads, is this true?
Yes, many states require that ground tire material be used in road building because of the beneficial properties that the rubber brings to the road, longer lasting, safer, and quieter. However, in spite of all the research and facts, the Midwest has been very slow in accepting and adapting this practice. Keep talking to your state officials and ask them to push for rubberized asphalt! It's a great product!
4. How much of the tire is actually recycled?
Entech recycles 100 % of our semi-truck tires into various products, crumb rubber and steel. Car tire yield is not as good because they also have fiber and white rubber that makes 100 % recycling more costly and the end products less desirable to the consumer.
