KURZ Karkassenhandel GmbH – a tire recycling company from Germany – has been committed to environmentally friendly and responsible waste tire disposal for years. Till this November, the tire recycler had been accepting only large quantities of end-of-life tires. With its new online inquiry tool, one can now ask KURZ to pick up scrap tires at individual demand. The service not only allows emptying the garage space, but also implies environment-friendly and clean recycling of waste tires.

Around 65 million end-of-life tires are generated in Germany every year. This can be imagined as an indeed huge pile, but the tires can be 100% recycled. End-of-life tires contain valuable raw materials such as rubber, steel and even synthetic textiles. A certified scrap tire disposal company like KURZ Karkassenhandel GmbH ensures that these raw materials remain in the loop and thus the environment protected.

With the new online tool, private individuals, small businesses and farms can now have their old tires picked up easily and in an environmentally friendly manner.

The problem so far: the tires which were worn out were to be handed in to the local trade or the nearest recycling centers. Lifting the heavy tires into the car and then taking the drive has been too difficult for many companies. There are also fees on site, some of which were relatively high. Apart from this, barely anyone would want to invest work, time and money into such an affair.

With the collection from KURZ Karkassenhandel GmbH, work and time are no longer relevant. And the fees are also kept within reasonable limits. This way one can get rid of your old tires quickly and safely, at the same time protecting the environment and ensuring a functioning raw material cycle.

In a radius of 25 kilometers around Landau and Wendlingen in Germany, the collection of used tires can also be commissioned for fewer than 20 items. It does not matter whether it is a car, light truck, truck or any other tire. The number of tires can easily be specified using the form on the website of Kurz.

The tire pickup service can be ordered using the new small-quantity form. After entering the type of tire and the respective quantity, the price is calculated immediately. Environmentally friendly disposal really couldn't be easier.

The tires are professionally recycled on site and broken down into their individual components. This can then be used to create high-quality and practical things: from sealants to rubber asphalt to sports field surfaces and shoe soles, a lot is possible.
