How it Works
Here is a general snapshot of how the scrap tire collection and recycling process works. The first step is to acquire the scrap tires. Our facility is open to the general public, tire retailers, automotive shops, and anyone who generates scrap tires. We also offer collection services, utilizing our own fleet of trucks, to collect the scrap tires.
Once the tires have been collected, they are delivered to our facility in Sedalia, Colorado. Our facility has three tire shredders and one tire baler that are used for processing and recycling the scrap tires into beneficial end-use products. The tire shredding process consists of grinding whole tires into a 2” nominal or 1 ½” minus tire chip. The tire chips are then used for alternative fuels, as replacement for aggregates in civil engineering applications, and a number of other uses.
Tire bales are a one ton block of compressed whole tires. Tire bales can be used for retaining walls, windbreaks, snowfences, green home building, material storage bins, and many other uses.
At Front Range Tire Recycle, we strive to offer reliable and competitive services while always keeping the environment our number one concern. Every tire that enters our facility is put towards a beneficial end-use project.
