Western Tyres Ltd is a licensed collector of tyres helping tyre retailers comply with UK and European legislation by collecting scrap tyres and ensuring their safe disposal. Western Tyres Ltd has been established 55 years.

Making Use of Waste Tyres

After collection Western Tyres Ltd sorts, grades and categorises tyres so that they can be reused in other ways. Used tyres can provide fuel for cement kilns or be turned into products like flooring, road surfaces, furniture and shoes.
Tyre bales can be used in the construction of modern engineered landfill sites and flood defences. If waste tyres are in good condition, they can be re–moulded and put back on the road as ‘re-treads’.

Helping tyre retailers dispose of Tyres for 55 years.

The Company

We provide a legally compliant car and commercial tyre collection and disposal service, providing security, protection and peace of mind for those companies that generate waste tyres of any size.

We are based in Avonmouth, Bristol within easy reach of motorways and are able to supply site remoulds and casings to the trade from our Avonmouth depot.

We cover a wide area, including the South West and The South East of England, and across into Wales.

History

Western Tyres Ltd has been trading since 1962, and was started by Terence Stephens and William Hayes.

Over the years there was a need to expand the business and Western Tyres started to import tyre casings from Japan and Europe.

Mike and Paul Stephens, sons of Terence Stephens, joined the company in 1973
