Why We Do What We Do
Every truck tire contains 22 gallons of oil. Those 22 gallons do not include the energy used in extraction, production, and shipping; meaning tires represent a significant carbon footprint. While tires are extremely durable and versatile, they are primarily dumped in landfills, contributing to a growing waste problem with 300 million tires ending up in landfills in the US every year.
Rco² helps our customers manage their waste tire needs while pioneering the best methods for reuse and up-cycling. If you are a tire shop, fleet maintenance yard, or other business in need of waste truck tire disposal please contact us to schedule service.
We serve the largest tire market in the world, Southern California, with truck tire disposal and a quality resale selection. We offer wholesale only and we invite global buyers, local tire shops, and retreaders to explore our post-consumer truck tire selection.
We firmly believe that all consumer products should be reduced, reused and then recycled. Tire reuse and retreading is always the most carbon efficient option. When reuse is no longer viable, scrap and waste tires can be cut and molded into new products like marine & loading dock bumpers. This model of up-cycling tires in their original form has a significantly lower carbon footprint than rubber crumb operations. Whole scrap tires can also be used for various engineering projects ranging from creative home design like earthships, to major civil engineering projects like the use of baled tires as subgrade for road construction.
As your partner, Rco² can assure you and your customers that you have made the most responsible choice in waste tire disposal. More than just a tire hauler, our mission is to find the most sustainable and responsible methods to handle waste.
