Tire Removal & Disposal

Old Tires Ready for Disposal & RecyclingWhen it’s time to get new tires, you usually don’t replace just one. That means you almost never have just a single old tire that’s taking up space. You could make a tire swing, but that only takes care of one tire. So what are you supposed to do with the rest?

Most people just stuff them into a corner of a garage, or just leave them sitting by the trash bins in the hopes that the local garbage collector take them. In most situations, they're not accepted in your regular waste service, which means they won’t even make it out of your yard. Don't let those old tires get in your way or become an environmental hazard!
