Deerpath is open Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The company accepts car, truck and semi tires.Deerpath Recyclers Inc., located within the Dowagiac Industrial Park, opened its doors in 2006 as a tire recycling company.
The company is a registered tire collection site with the State of Michigan, and is a registered tire hauler in Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Ohio and Wisconsin.
For the past 10 years, Deerpath Recyclers has worked with the State of Michigan on its Tire grants. The state issues grants for tire cleanups throughout Michigan. In doing so, Deerpath has been involved with many of the local community tire cleanups.
Once the company has collected tires, it has a machine that chops them up into smaller pieces. The crumb rubber is then used to make different products and landscaping material.
