EnTire properly disposes of your tires by recycling them at a cost
competitive with a landfill rate.
EnTire accepts tires from private individuals, tire dealers, and
licensed tire haulers for a fee. Tires may be delivered to our
plant, or pickup can be arranged. EnTire can also provide 48' and
53' van trailers to tire dealers for scrap tire storage.

About Crumb Rubber
Our crumb rubber is created using the cryogenic method. There is a
huge difference between the cryogenic process (freezing) and the
ambient process (a process using normal temperatures). The first
step in either process is similar. A tire passes through a low speed
shear-type shredder, and the shreds pass over a classifier until
they are properly sized―about 2". The chips are composed of rubber,
steel and fiber. From this point the two processes are very
The Ambient Process
the ambient process the 2" tire chip goes in through a series of
cracker mills. The chips are torn apart, reaching high temperatures.
These rubber particles have a lot of tears and grooves on them,
making them great for some projects but inappropriate for others.
Ambient crumb rubber gives a softer, spongier surface because the
rubber particles don't compact as tightly.
The Cryogenic Process
the cryogenic process, the 2" tire chip enters a freezing tunnel
where it comes in contact with liquid nitrogen.
This quick freeze
process reaches temperatures as low as -196 degrees centigrade.
Because the three components―rubber, steel and fiber―freeze at
different speeds they naturally try to separate. The next step
thrusts the frozen chips under a spinning hammer mill where they are
shattered into many different sizes. Because of the subzero
temperatures, these rubber particles have smooth sides―breaking like
sheets of glass. Cryogenic crumb rubber is great for turf infill
because it integrates into synthetic grass more readily, and lays in
place tighter because of its particle shape and smooth sides. It
gives the turf a firm feel when walking or running. We believe
fields built with cryogenic crumb rubber also have better water
How much does Crumb Rubber cost?
Cost delivered to you for your specific project will vary, depending
on the mesh size, quantity and shipping cost. EnTire Crumb Rubber
ships in new "super sacks," which contain approximately 2200 pounds
of cryogenic crumb rubber each. Playground products can ship in
