Your go-to guide for waste & recycling in the Twin Cities.
Today's tires are designed to be very durable so even though you're done using them, they still have a lot of life left. Tires can be retreaded, recycled and even shredded for a variety of uses from basketball courts to new shoe products and rubber landscape mulch.
Old tires aren’t considered hazardous waste, but if they are not properly recycled, they do pose threats. Mosquitoes use them as breeding grounds and stockpiles of tires are a potential fire hazard.
There are several convenient options for proper disposal.
It's illegal to put tires in the garbage or dump them along the roadside. For more information on recycling and disposing of tires, contact your county.
To get the most mileage from your tires, follow proper tire maintenance recommendations, including inflation, balancing and rotating. Avoid quick acceleration or braking that could cause premature wear. These tips also will help improve your gas mileage.
