Amber warning for hot weather from Wednesday 10th August at the HRC's

We are monitoring the weather forecasts for this week and we may need to close our HRCs early afternoon if temperatures are too high for the site staff to safely operate in, so we advise you make your booking as early in the day as possible.  We will update any changes here and on Gloucestershire County Council social media as soon as possible.



Where it is taken?

Sitr Midlands, Cheltenham

What happens to it?

After initial processing, the tyres are delivered to Sitr Midlands in Cheltenham who bales the tyres. The re-processor grades the tyres into high and low quality.

High quality tyres are processed into chippings for use in flooring production and equestrian arenas. 

Low quality tyres are used in the UK cement industry with TDF for the kilns or exported to India for pyrolysis which is used to reprocess the tyres into fuel gas, oils, solid residue (char), and low-grade carbon black. These materials can then be reused in the production of other lower grade rubber materials.
