Our Story: Pioneering a Greener Future

Welcome to Recycled Rubber Products LLC, a trailblazer in the environmental sustainability sphere with a profound commitment to repurposing scrap tires into innovative rubber mulch products. Nestled in the heart of the Chicago metropolitan area, in Joliet, Illinois, our journey began over two decades ago, driven by a vision to tackle the growing issue of tire waste in the United States. Today, we stand as a proud woman-owned, family-operated business that has successfully transformed millions of tires from environmental liabilities into valuable, eco-friendly products.

Our Mission: Sustainability Through Innovation

Our mission is twofold: to contribute to the planet’s well-being by drastically reducing tire waste and to offer our customers high-quality, durable, and safe rubber mulch products for playgrounds, landscaping, and beyond. Through cutting-edge recycling processes, we convert discarded tires into premium rubber mulch, significantly reducing the environmental impact of traditional waste disposal methods and offering a superior alternative to wood mulch. Our products are not only safe for children and pets but also contribute to the conservation of forests and the reduction of carbon footprint.

Why Recycled Rubber?

Tires are a challenging waste product, largely due to their durability and non-biodegradable nature. Left in landfills, they pose significant environmental and health risks, including fire hazards and breeding grounds for pests. Our recycling process diverts these tires from landfills, transforming them into rubber mulch that boasts numerous advantages over traditional mulch, including improved safety for playgrounds, longevity, and minimal maintenance for landscaping projects. Moreover, our rubber mulch is IPEMA-certified, ensuring it meets the highest standards for impact attenuation and safety.

Commitment to Quality and Safety

At Recycled Rubber Products LLC, every product we manufacture undergoes rigorous testing to meet or exceed the stringent requirements set forth by the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the International Playground Equipment Manufacturers Association. This commitment to quality and safety reflects in the durability, non-toxicity, and eco-friendliness of our rubber mulch, making it a preferred choice for schools, municipalities, and homeowners across the United States seeking environmentally friendly solutions.

Our Impact and Vision for the Future

Over the years, our efforts have not only contributed to a cleaner, greener planet but also fostered a community of environmentally conscious individuals and organizations. By recycling millions of tires, we have saved countless trees from being cut down for mulch, conserved natural resources, and mitigated the effects of greenhouse gases.

Looking ahead, we are dedicated to continuing our quest for innovation in recycling technologies, expanding our product offerings, and educating communities about the benefits of recycling and upcycling. We envision a future where every scrap tire is repurposed, contributing to a sustainable, waste-free world.
