Tyre recycling with tyre bales for use in construction
Anglo Envronmental Engineering and Construction

We have been producing tyre blocks (Urro-Blocks or Tyre bales) and pioneering their use for the civil engineering industry in the UK for over 7 years. Our tyre blocks have been used in many successful projects with many proven applications.

The use of tyre blocks in construction is becoming commonplace due to the industry becoming increasingly aware of its benefits with help from over 5 years of UK independent Research and Development from H R Wallingford, The Transport Research Laboratory and Southampton University among others.

Our clients in the municipal waste industry have saved hundreds and thousands of pounds by replacing virgin aggregate with trye blocks (Urro-Blocks or tyre bales) in the engineering of landfill cell drainage layers. This application also saves hundreds of thousand or tons of virgin aggregates towards a required government directive.

Anglo Environmental supplied 12,000 Urro-Blocks for a government contract flood defence project on the River Witham. The project, based on tyre blocks (Urro Blocks or tyre bales), went on to win the prestigious Fleming Award sponsored by Skanska Cementation Foundations. Further information available on request. We also worked closely with the MOD combating the floods in York. In particular, a major river bank breach on the River Derwent endangering the Drax Power Station. Anglo Environmental was a finalist and runner up in the National Recycling Awards 2003, and winner of the Green Apple Environment awards 2003 Presented at the House of Commons, London. Tyre blocks themselves, as an environmentally friendly product for construction, also won the prestigous Highland Council award 2003.
