Tires are banned from landfill disposal by Minnesota Statutes §115A.904. Improperly disposed of tires may provide breeding grounds for disease carrying mosquitoes and present potential fire hazards.
Before disposing of a tire, consider retread and reuse options. Motorists have used retread tires safely for many years. Retreading saves valuable resources, avoids disposal costs for many businesses, and reduces the price of new tires by as much as 30-50%.
Tire retailers are required to accept the return of one used tire for each new tire purchased. A service fee may be charged. For larger quantities of tires, contact a licensed waste tire transporter or haul tires to a permitted waste tire processing facility. When hiring a transporter, verify its Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) transporter identification number. For more information on tire transporters or licensed disposal sites, contact the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) at (651) 296-6300.
See Recycling & Disposal Sites for businesses that offer disposal services for waste tires. Materials accepted may vary, and fees may apply. Call for specific details.
