How to Reuse Railroad Ties

  1. Burn Railroad Ties as a Biomass Fuel Material
    Co-generation incineration plants located strategically throughout the extended Midwest have turned to us for used railroad cross ties as a biomass material that can be burned and turned in to fuel. Midwest Companies’ joint venture with Ties2 has positioned us as the premier railroad tie recycling program in the nation and expanded our capabilities. Our biomass fuel material can be shipped to different regions of the United States and internationally.
  2. Moisture Absorbing Aggregate for Landfills
    Midwest Companies has also trademarked a unique, wood waste derived moisture absorbing aggregate for landfills. TIEROC is an alternative to rock and stone, with a number of environmental and cost-effective benefits. We do not use discarded cross ties containing creosote materials into landfills which ensures no leaching of chemicals into ground water.
