Old tires can be a big problem. There's no good way to store them, and throwing them away isn't always a practical or environmentally safe option. If you're in the Hopkins area and need to have old tires removed, 1-800-GOT-JUNK? can help.
Hopkins Old Tire Removal and Disposal
Tires are an everyday item, but what do you do with the old ones when they're worn out? While some people have the time, energy and creativity to turn them into swings, furniture or even art, if you're like most, you just want your old tires gone. That's where 1-800-GOT JUNK comes in. We pick up almost any tire, from bikes all the way up to construction equipment, and we make sure your tires are recycled instead of just being thrown in the landfill.
Old Tire Disposal Options
While it's certainly possible to just have your old tires carted off to the landfill, this creates several issues. It's great that tires are made of durable materials when you have them on your vehicle, but once you're ready to get rid of them, not so much. Tires don't break down the way organic materials do, and that means they sit in the landfill for years.
Tires are also something that almost everybody uses and has to replace on a fairly frequent basis. They accumulate rapidly due to the sheer volume of tires needing to be thrown out. This has become such an issue that many landfills and dumps now have limits on how many they can accept.
Tires also trap harmful gases which can then by leached into the surrounding soil and into any ground water nearby. The methane gas can also permeate landfill liners, making tires especially problematic when it comes to environmental concerns.
So what's a responsible person to do? No one wants piles of old tires hanging around their home, and that's why old tire recycling is a great option. Tires can be easily ground down and turned into a material that can be used in everything from playground mulch and crumb rubber to shoes and asphalt. Some tires can even be recycled into a special fuel that produces more energy per unit than coal or oil.
