Materials, Inc. was founded in 1991 as one of the first tire
recycling centers in Georgia under the leadership of Leon Vaughn,
Bruce Scott, and Robin Vaughn, with Linda Vaughn as Executive
Officer. The Company originated in Alma, Georgia and remains
headquartered there, being the only tire recycling center in Georgia
under the same management since origination.
Presently, Recovered Materials, Inc. is paid to collect scrap tires
from local and regional tire stores, car dealerships, junk yards,
and illegal tire piles that the government intervenes to clean up.
This is done in an area comprising all of South Georgia, Middle
Georgia, and North Florida. Recently, the company was awarded the
bid to collect all scrap tires generated by all military bases in
Georgia and one in South Carolina.
tires we collect are sorted according to reusable content such as
good reusable tires that are put back into the mainstream or true
scrap tires that are shredded into one and a half to two inch
nominal chips and sold as a soil aggregate for drain fields and
septic tank drain lines.
