Where do we get scrap tyres?
Over the last ten years, Turak Tyres has grown from a medium-sized regional company to a nationwide company dealing in used and scrap tyres. We have established business relationships with a large number of customers throughout Germany and collect all types of used and end-of-life scrap tyres from car repair shops, petrol stations, garages and tyre wholesalers. We have also cleaned up dozens of dump sites with scrap tires and helped many customers clean up huge piles of so called silo tires.
How do do we collect scrap tyres from our German customers?
We offer our German customers various options for collecting used and scrap tyres. This includes back door collection, lockable containers or bringing the tyres themselves. Our vans and trucks are dispatched daily and visit our customer sites to manually remove used tyres and scrap tyres. We also provide containers for customers who do not have enough storage space. In this way we contribute to environmental protection and give our customers the possibility to fill the containers as they wish. Of course, tyre deliveries to our plants are also very welcome.
