    Good day sir. I am Clement. I have a registered business name in my country and I have keen interest in the tyre recycling business. So far, a have some used truck tyres in my dump. My initial plan has been to look for a foreign buyer that I could supply some cut tyres to. However, that hasn’t been feasible. So if you could help me in getting a grant to enable me get the necessary technology to recycle my waste tyre,
    I will appreciate.

    hi!
    Commercial truck tires represent a significant cost in truck driving. Extending the lifespan of your tires can help you save money and can keep you and everyone around you safer on the road.
