We Buy Sell and Recover all types

We buy, sell, remove and recover all types of rubber throughout the USA and the world. Depending upon weight and type of rubber ASR may be able to remove, recover and/or recycle your product.

There are a vast array of rubber material types, many of which can be re-purposed for use in other industries. If you would like to find out if your rubber material is recyclable, just contact us to find out more.

Recyclers can produce an array of products from used rubber. One such way is to shred the rubber. From there it can be used in many applications such as back fill for roadways, landslide repair projects, retaining walls, and vibration damping for railroads. It can be used as filler for playgrounds in replacement of sand or wood chips. It can be remade into livestock mats, flooring materials, dock bumpers, and move-able speed bumps. Old rubber can be recycled so please contact us if you need rubber recycling .
