South Carolina has six scrap tire processors and recyclers located in the state. Tire-derived fuel (TDF), civil engineering and ground rubber applications are the primary markets for scrap tires in South Carolina. Scrap tires were also processed for:

  • Landfill construction
  • Alternative daily cover
  • Playground and sports surface
  • Crumb rubber

The Recycling Market Development Advisory Council works with the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control, the Asphalt Rubber Technology Service at Clemson University, businesses and other entities on initiatives to promote markets and applications for scrap tires.
