Tyre recycling

For more than 10 years our company, UAB „Metaloidas“ has been involved in the collection, handling and recycling of used tyres of cars, trucks and special machinery. Currently, we offer to handle and arrange any accumulations of used tyres in Lithuania under particularly favourable conditions.
Utilization of used car tyres is a serious ecological problem worldwide. Recycling of used tyres has not only large ecological but also economic significance related to the possibility of the repeated use of polymeric raw material. Tyres are recycled in the company by fully automated mechanical means, namely the tyres are cut into small pieces and rubber is separated from any other waste.
While following the order of priority established in legal acts related to waste prevention and handling, the following hierarchy for waste is established:

  1. Prevention;
  2. Preparation for repeated use;
  3. Recycling;
  4. Other use (for e.g. to obtain energy);
  5. Disposal.

We should not stay indifferent to environmental protection and should select the safest, the most ecologic and the most acceptable method, i.e. the recycling of tyres.
In August 2004, the company built and is currently operating a production facility for recycling of used tyres in a landed area located in Pakruojo St. 44, Šiauliai (1600 m2). A new site for the collection and storage of used tyres has been installed in the territory of the company conforming to the most modern requirements of the EU, where around 580 tones of tyres are stored.
Information for importers: UAB „Metaloidas“ issues the waste acceptance certificates and the waste usage certificates approved by the Ministry of Environment of the Republic of Lithuania according to which the business subjects are released from paying the packing/ article tax..
