Economic Impact

300 Million Tires Scrapped per yearMost states have implemented a tire policy to keep tires out of landfill, however there are still many states who continue to landfill tires either because of the lack of policy or lack of recycling options.

Tire generators such as tire repair shops and tire dealers have to throw away their tires.  As landfill space becomes more sparce, higher disposal costs have created a sector for tire haulers to pick up and deliver scrap tires.  Haulers deliver to tire recyclers such as reRubber or go straight to another source such as cement kilns for burning and as a last alternative will still have to landfill.

Tire recyclers charge a disposal fee below that of the landfill to help incentives tire haulers and tire dealers from throwing away resources.  A recycler can help generate the following economics for our society each year (according to the California Integrated Waste Management Board):


Saves enough energy to power 1.4 million California home


Reduces water pollution by 27,047 tons


Saves 14 million trees


Reduces greenhouse gas (carbon dioxide & methane) emission by an amount equal to taking 3.8 million passenger cars off the highway.

Economic impact

Recycling a ton of waste has twice the economic impact of burying it in the ground. In addition, recycling one additional ton of waste will pay $101 more in salaries and wages, produce $275 more in goods and services and generate $135 more in sales than disposing of it in a landfill.


Recycling companies comprise of 5,300 establishments and accounts for 85,000 jobs, generates $4 billion in salaries and wages and produces $10 billion worth of goods and services annually.

In additional to creating more jobs and greater economic activity at a local level, recycling generates $200 million per year in sales tax revenues. These funds help local governments pay for health and social services programs, transportation improvements and public safety.
