Tires and their properties are almost indestructible they easily accumulate stagnant rainwater, garbage, and other debris, becoming hotbeds of infection, hotbeds for mosquitoes that carry diseases such as dengue, chikungunya, and zika, as well as other pests and rodents.

What should you do with the old set of rims?

“Most states remove tires from landfills because of their shape. They retain a lot of air and that makes them migrate to the surface. They also have value as a recycled item,” said Diane Bickett, executive director of the Cuyahoga County Solid Waste District in Ohio.

Old tires are fully recyclable. This means that in your area they have a specific facility to recycle things that the weekly collection will not accept. That’s where you should be heading with the old tires. According to Budget Dumpster, specialized recycling organizations across the country take and recycle used tires; some even go and collect them for you. There is usually a fee associated with recycling tires, whether you drop them off or have someone pick them up for you.”

Unfortunately, there aren’t many ways to avoid pay to dispose of your tires. Whether you take them to a local recycling facility or auto shop, it will probably cost you money to dispose of them.
