Coming Full Cycle

Scrap tires collected by Liberty Tire Recycling are processed and refined by size-reduction techniques designed to achieve a range of particle sizes as small as 600 microns. Various mesh sizes of crumb rubber become the ideal raw material for a wide variety of applications, including molded rubber goods and adhesives.

Larger sizes are used for civil engineering applications as a substitute for stone aggregates, or as fuel to power kilns, mills and power plants. Smaller sizes are incorporated into a number of industrial, athletic field, paving and landscaping applications, among others.
