Did you know that recycled tires can be turned into brake pedals or floor mats? What about the fact that two gallons of recycled motor oil can generate enough electricity to run the average household for almost 24 hours? At Utz Tire Service of Arcade, Inc., we are proud to say we recycle and reuse many of our products, keeping the environment safe, clean, and green.
Tires are very resilient and durable, so letting them sit in a dump infinitely is a huge waste. Recycled tires can be turned into other car parts, soles for shoes, basketball courts, and playground padding. Recycling motor oil is important because oil can be re-refined and used again. After a complicated filtering process, oil can be reused mainly at power plants or in industrial boilers. Auto and metal recycling saves time and resources by not having to make the same parts again. Auto and metal recycling services save an estimated 85 million barrels of oil every year.
