Give your worn out tyres a new life
In line with the company's life cycle approach, environmental matters are taken into consideration also at the latter part of the cycle. Nokian Tyres contributes to the recycling and recovery of discarded tyres.
Discarded tyres are far from worthless; however, their life continues in different types of recycling uses. Your old tyres may continue to serve you as a binding agent in the asphalt under your brand-new Hakkapeliitta tyres or protect your home from motorway noise in the form of a noise wall.
