Certified used tire disposal companies are becoming increasingly popular

50 used tires illegally dumped in nature near Autobahn 72

Bonn, December 06.12.2022th, XNUMX The efforts of the ZARE initiative are bearing fruit: The number of requests for certified used tire disposal via the ZARE website is increasing continuously. This not only benefits the partners in the network, but also the environment.

Since 2015, the ZARE initiative has been committed to the sustainable disposal of old tires. Because only certified waste disposal companies have the expertise to sort old tires professionally and route them to the most sustainable recycling methods. Since the network was founded, the number of inquiries via the ZARE website has increased https://zertifizierte-altreifenentsorger.de/illegale-altreifenentsorgung-in-deutschland/ from year to year. Most requests for certified waste tire disposal come from Germany, but also from Switzerland, Austria, France, Spain, the USA, Ghana and India. ZARE's goal of reaching 2022 inquiries by 1.000 was already achieved at the beginning of November. "This is a great success for us and shows that environmentally friendly disposal of used tires is an issue for more and more people," says ZARE network coordinator Christina Guth.

On the website https://zertifizierte-altreifenentsorger.de/altreifen-annahme-und-verkauf/ The ZARE initiative has contact forms that companies can use to make inquiries about professional disposal of old tires. All incoming inquiries are forwarded to the ZARE partners - all exclusively certified disposal companies that ensure the professional and environmentally friendly disposal of used tires and are represented throughout Germany. After the request via the website, the ZARE partners promptly create an offer. The minimum quantity when accepting used tires is 50 pieces or one ton.

Continue to use old tires

Tires consist of valuable components such as rubber, steel and textile. These components can be reused through professional disposal and used in the manufacture of new, high-quality products. Whether retreading, export, material, thermal or chemical recycling - there are many ways to continue to use old tires sensibly.

Professional disposal of old tires conserves valuable resources and protects the environment: on the one hand, the components of the tire remain in the material cycle for as long as possible through old tire recycling in the sense of the circular economy, on the other hand, professional disposal reduces the number of illegal tire deposits, which despite the ban on landfills in Germany Germany and high fines continue to rise.

The choice of a disposal company should be made carefully, because the legal situation in Germany does not oblige disposal companies to sort tires professionally. With the ZARE partners, companies can be sure that their used tires are recycled in an environmentally friendly and professional manner.
