29 Creative Tyres Upcycling Projects and Ideas

Let’s get this straight – upcycling has nothing to do with cycling up the hill.

Ok, so what upcycling actually is? Something like recycling? Well yes, but it is more like reusing, but more awesome. Upcycling is reusing of discarded objects and transforming them in a creative way into different products giving them different purpose than their original one. We, at 24/7 Waste Removal, took a look at the recycling process and have shown you that improper recycling could harm the environment, so give upcycling a try – you will be surprised how much fun it can be.

In the UK, nearly 55 million tyres go to waste every year and since there are 35 million vehicles in the streets, the number doesn’t look that high. But it is high. And the thread of their improper disposal is even higher for the environment causing land and water pollution and for local communities who constantly fight against fly-tipping and fires caused from it.

There is more than one way to reuse tyres: they can be a fuel source for cement kilns or be recycled and then used in in products like shoes, flooring and road surfaces. But when you get to see the story from a different, upcycling point of view, the list of possible tyres reuses becomes almost endless – from furniture through garden decorations to children playgrounds.

We are sure these ideas will ignite your creativity and soon you will be trying a tyre upcycling project on your own, being able to add even more ideas to our list of 29 upcycling tyres ideas.
