How to Dispose of Old Tyres

When getting rid of old or extra tyres, there are a few things to think about. It is illegal to dispose of tyres improperly, so conducting some study before doing so is highly recommended.

The majority of municipalities forbid the transportation of tyres to landfills, and those that do frequently impose a small charge of about £2 per tyre. You’ll need to get in touch with your local council to find out what their policy is. If they don’t take tyres, they’ll be able to lead you in the correct direction.

For a cost, certain mechanics’ shops and tire-fitting businesses might be able to take them off your hands. If you have any, call your local garage to find out if they will take the tyres. Halfords, for instance, provides this service; Kwik-Fit does not.

Specialised businesses handle tyres. Although they do charge for the pickup and disposal of your used tyres, you can frequently save yourself the headache of looking for a tip or garage that will take them. As with all of these recommendations, be sure the business you select has the required waste carrier’s licence.

Ask to check the company’s licence if you locate a service that promises to collect tyres because they can only be lawfully disposed of by licenced trash carriers.

Tyres can’t be thrown away in a skip. Tyre disposal is not covered by insurance for skip providers, so they won’t take skips with tyres in them.
