How to Dispose of Used Tyres?

Some tyre fitting companies and garages can take old tyres at a fee. You can pass by your local garage to find out whether they accept old tyres.

How To Us Recycling To Dispose of Used Tyres?

Tyres are made of rubber, steel and textile and this makes them difficult to recycle. The EU landfill directive stated that tyres are no longer accepted in landfills site and this means that most tyres need to be recycled or reused. They can make a tyre swing, can be used as garden planters and as boat buggers.

Fires can happen in the storage areas. New laws will propose bigger gaps between stacks and stacking them lower to prevent a disaster. These fires put a strain on local fire stations, emit harmful fumes and are bad for the environment. It is important to make sure you dispose your waste responsibly.

When tyres are recycled, they are shredded into flakes called rubber crumb which can be used to create carpet underlay, running tracks, rubberised asphalt for roads and swings for children play areas so they will be put to good use and used for many years to come.
