The Logo for Patriot Recycling


Our vision is to become one of the most inclusive and effective tire recycling companies in the United States by providing sustainable recycling solutions while producing viable and useful products from recycled tires.


Our mission is to promote a cleaner environment by providing efficient ways to recycle tires and reduce environmental pollution in Northeast Tennessee, Southwest Virginia, and surrounding areas.


The genesis of Patriot Recycling occurred in 2010 when the concept of developing a tire derived aggregate and tire derived fuel (“TDA/TDF”) operation in southwest Virginia was conceived by entrepreneur Frank Pyott of Tazewell, Virginia. After the formation of Advanced Technologies of Southwest Virginia, Inc. Frank joined ranks with former high school classmate Bob Myers of Gray Tennessee, to bring the concept to fruition. The two collaborated in the retooling of the project’s initial business plan to engineer and develop the basic blue print for Patriot. Following the untimely passing of Frank in 2011, Bob and members of the Pyott family continued with the pursuit of Frank’s concept. In conjunction with Keith Stiltner, a coal mine operator from Grundy, Virginia, the principals succeeded in acquiring the necessary facility and processing equipment to promote the opening of Patriot’s doors for business in Bristol, Tennessee in October 2013.

From the Outset, Frank envisioned a recycling operation which ultimately would process and sell “everything but the smoke on the saw”. True to Frank’s vision, Patriot Recycling operations include everything from the manufacturing process for TDA/TDF, processing OTR tire sidewalls for highway and agricultural applications,to producing aggregate for infrastructure  and providing sustainable recycling solutions by providing viable and useful products from recycled tires.

We  are the only permitted and approved tire recycling facility in Tennessee
