Tyres can be recycled at a Recycling Centre.
Tyres are shredded and granulated at our partner site in Bury. They are turned into a crumb which is used in equestrian matting, playgrounds and sometimes for drainage. During the shredding process, some wire is removed and recycled.
Over 38 million tyres are thrown away in the UK each year and are sometimes flytipped on garage forecourts, industrial estates or car parks.
If you have tyres replaced by an garage, they are responsible for disposing the tyres correctly.
