Tire Recycling FAQs

Rumpke collects tires from automotive and tire stores as well as tire cleanups throughout our service region. The tires are transported to our tire recycling facility outside of Hamilton, Ohio, where they go through a series of machines to prepare them for end use.

First, the tires are loaded into a rough cut machine to break the tires down to approximately 8 to 10 inches wide by 24 inches long. These pieces then travel a conveyer to be fed into another shredding machine that will cut the tires into smaller pieces. At the end of the process, the tire shreds will be less than 4 inches long. Once complete, the tires are shipped to Rumpke sites to be beneficially reused in landfill construction.

Rumpke always strives to protect the environment and human health. By adopting tire recycling at a local and regional level, we can:

• Eliminate homes and breeding places for mosquitos, rodents, ticks and other animals that spread disease.
• Reduce chances of tire fires.
• Beneficially reuse the material in landfill construction.

All rubber tires from vehicles can be recycled, including:
