Does anyone know about the process used with sidewalls? I thought they had a lot of wire in but perhaps not nowadays, what happens to the tread and ,assuming it gets burnt/recycled, why not the sidewalls too?

the tread is mulch up in horse ménage filling. The bead on them is so thick it takes a lot of work for the shredder so they prefer to cut out and sell the sides

Was good money for export to India, so they took the lot , but not now , so they use what they can for sidewalls and only have the tread to get rid of , when they asked me if I could move the thousands of tyres they had I took it at that , it's was only after I realised it's quite slow and very hard work cutting the sidewalls off , we shifting around 1200 a Month

Thanks. There’s always the assumption someone’s making some unfair cash out of the job. Maybe that isn’t so!

Isn't there a lot of wire in tyres or have they done away with that now? I’ve always seen quite a pile of wire after recycling day in November.
