Used Tire Disposal & Recycling Near You

Burning rubber is a quick way to create junk. When it's time to buy new tires, your old tires quickly turn from useful car parts to giant, piles of rubber junk.

Although old tires can be reused as swings, gardening planters, and construction project materials, most people tend to stuff them into a corner of a garage or leave them by the trash bins. However, old tires are usually not accepted in regular waste services - meaning you may never even see them leave your yard. Luckily, used tire disposal is possible with 1-800-GOT-JUNK?.

Are rubber tires recyclable?

Tires can - and should - be recycled. Tires are made of synthetic and non-synthetic rubber, wires, and fabric that cannot decompose on its own. When sent to a landfill, tire piles can build up over time, taking up space and resources. And when they’re burned, the materials in old tires release harmful toxins into the environment.

The safest way to handle old tires is to recycle them. Tires can be reused as construction material or as upcycled household items. If you don’t have the space for used tires, recycling facilities can break down the materials for other purposes.

To recycle a used tire, the entire tire must first be taken apart. The rubber, steel, wires, and fabric, are each removed. They are then reused or undergo their own separate recycling process.

Recycled rubber is used to create things like construction materials, playground equipment, and athletic tracks. The rest of the scrap parts are used as fuel supplements in different cement and pulp industries.
