Tyre Recycling

Western Tyres Ltd sorts, grades then sends your used ‘End of Life’ tyres to the appropriate recycling facility. Western Tyres Ltd is a tyre collector that receives used tyres from tyre retailers that provide new tyres for the public and trade and passes used tyres on to recycling facilities.

Tyres can be re–treaded, bound into bales, reduced to chips or powder, or sent overseas.

It has been illegal to dispose of tyres at a landfill site since 2006.

New Life From Old Tyres – Retreading

The best use of old commercial tyres is to have them retreaded.

Retreaded tyres are safe. Since January 2004 it has been a legal requirement for commercial retreads to be manufactured according to ECE Regulations 109 which states that tyres are tested to the same load and speed criteria as new tyres.

Introduction of these mandatory requirements ensures that the quality, integrity and performance of retreaded tyres are on a par with new tyres.

“Whilst a car tyre is retreaded only once, commercial vehicle tyres are often retreaded two or three times and aircraft tyres many times.”

Says the Retread Manufacturers Association

Retreading makes commercial sense.

Great Value for Money
Saving money over the high cost of new tyres and commercial tyres are designed to be retreaded.
Retreaded tyres are very green
Each retreaded tyre represents a new tyre that did not have to be manufactured and an old tyre that did not have to disposed of.

Save money and get your retreads today.

The Life of Bales

Western Tyres Ltd produces PAS108 standard tyre bales for use in civil engineering and landfill infrastruture works.

The PAS was designed to provide a specification for producing compact tyre bales of a consistent and verifiable quality and dimension.

PAS108 bales provides a valuable means of reusing these tyres whilst at the same time, reducing the demand for primary aggregate materials in construction.

Tyre bales can be used for

  • River bank stabilisation
  • Flood defences
  • Soakaway systems
  • Soil Elevation
  • Impact Barriers for Race tracks
  • Road Sub bases
