You’re in the business of replacing tires, not disposing of them. With so many local, state, and federal restrictions on tire disposal, does finding a final destination for your business waste leave you exhausted?
You’d never haul the old tires generated by your booming business to an illegal dumping site, but it can be difficult to ensure a subcontractor isn’t doing just that. Abandoned tires present an immediate health risk due to the hospitable breeding ground they create for potentially disease-laden mosquitoes. Under the right circumstances, these abandoned tires can also fuel a noxious fire that burns for days.
Federal law prohibits dumping tires into a landfill, so automotive businesses are forced to find creative solutions. What many proprietors don’t realize, though, is just how much being good to the planet can be good for business.
Ethical Tire Disposal
There are a number of reasons why you should consider working tire recycling systems into your disposal plan. First and foremost, you’re able to do a great service to the environment. Old tires can find new life in a staggering number of ways, from safe rubber mulch for playgrounds to heavy-duty infrastructure construction.
In fact, discarded tires can be recycled into more than a hundred products. For instance, 2009 alone saw more than 2 million tons of scrap tires turned into a type of industrial fuel that is up to 25% more efficient than coal. The tires generated by your successful business can become artificial turf for the home arena of your favorite sports team or rubberized asphalt for a highway. Almost any rubber-based product you can imagine can be and often is made from recycled scrap tires.
When you make a commitment to greener disposal systems, you’re not just complying with the law and doing an abstract good deed. Promoting your eco-friendly systems can also give your bottom line a healthy boost. Today’s consumer is more aware of environmental concerns and more likely to vote with their dollars. When customers know their old tires will be recycled appropriately, they’re more likely to choose your business for their new tires.
Outsourcing Your Disposal Plan
In order to manage your own tire recycling drop-off program, you’d need to hire full-time employees who only manage disposal. This creates an enormous overhead expense and leaves you open to any liabilities. When you’re ready to take your business to the next level, you don’t have to hire new staff, you just need to outsource the job to professionals who already have an effective plan in place.
