Spent Tire Community Cleanup
Organizations We Team With
The Events we support are
making a difference
See them in action via our Flickr photo stream.
Our community cleanup program partners with Portland-based non-profit the River Network, which protects waterways
through 2,000 state and regional organizations. We recycle all spent tires collected during these River Network
efforts – free of charge. We'll do the same for independently organized events through River Network, too.
We can support your river, lake and public land
cleanups if you fill out a cleanup request form.
Wildlife Habitat CouncilWildlife Habitat Council
We work closely with the non-profit Wildlife Habitat Council
to restore, enhance and certify land surrounding our manufacturing facilities. Several tire plants – including the
Beech Facility in Morrison, Tenn., and the Wilson Plant in Wilson, N.C. – feature educational classrooms and
habitats for students and community groups.
Plant and nurture near-extinct trees and plants, such as the American Chestnut.
Host environmental outreach and education events at our habitats and refuges.
Welcome environmentally themed academic competitions.
Green Our Grounds
When feasible, we use spent tire material on our properties, perhaps as mulch around trees,
as soaker-hoses for landscaping or as anti-fatigue mats for our employees.
