Quarter 4, November 21st Meeting: Presentation from PreTred & Tires to Green Recycling

Dave Goldschmidt is the General Manager at Tires To Green Recycling Colorado (T2GR). He has spent time over the last decade in tire processing and management. Tires became a passion for him when he found out about the huge problem of scrap tires in the front range of Colorado. Providing non-virgin materials for real end markets is a real driver and motivator for T2GR in finding an ultimate solution to the waste tire problem in the state. T2GR will process approximately 1MM Colorado generated tires in 2023.

Royal Rich is the sales manager for Pretred, a Colorado based manufacturing company. 

Pretred makes barrier products from 95% recycled materials (waste tires) that are both environmentally friendly and sustainable. 1 mile of Pretred barriers diverts over 1.4 million pounds of tires from landfill or burning while reducing over 5.5 million pounds of carbon (compared to concrete). Pretred barriers are cost competitive, come in great color options, and are fully recyclable into themselves. Royal has been in sales management and development for over 20 years. He is a Colorado native, Colorado State University Alumni and enjoys exploring the Rocky Mountains with his fly rod, coaching his 2 sons in football, and planning his next travel adventure with his family.

Watch the Presentation from Pretred & Tires to Green, two organizations providing solutions to Colorado waste tire issues.
