Dispose of Tires Properly
Each year, over ten million tires end up in landfills.
Some area drop-off sites accept tires, and most tire
suppliers will dispose of your old tires when you
purchase new ones. The cost is usually $1-$3 per
passenger car tire.

Illegally Dumped Tires Cause Problems
  • Dumped tires provide a breeding ground for
    mosquitoes and a habitat for rodents.
  • Tire fires are a huge environmental problem
    because they burn for a long time and produce
    dark black smoke containing toxic chemicals and
    air pollutants.
How to Help
  • Buy products made from recycled tires whenever
    possible for landscaping jobs.
  • Check tire pressure once a month. Proper inflation is critical for maximum tire life and good fuel economy.
