2020 Scrap Tire Collections
Michigan Scrap Tire End Use Report
The Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) 2019 Scrap Tire End Use Report for Michigan is now available.
The State of Michigan generates approximately 10 million scrap tires on an annual basis. Scrap tires pose a fire risk and a human health risk as mosquito breeding grounds.
Scrap tires can be used in many ways. Semi-truck tires can be recycled and reused by being retreaded. Licensed landfills may utilize scrap tire chips during landfill cell construction and during gas collection well installation. Power plants use tire derived fuel for energy production. Michigan Scrap Tire Processors take scrap tires and turn them into multiple products – scrap tire mulch, septic drainfield aggregate, and material to be incorporated into manufactured or paving products.
By taking part in the Scrap Tire Grant Program, we collected and recycled 12,261 tires in Jackson County last year! Check out the Jackson County Recycling website and Facebook page for current information about upcoming 2020 tire collections.
