Tires are one of the most consumed items around the world given that they are often changed several times during the use of a car. At present, there are at least 275 million scrap tires in stockpiles in the United States. In New York State alone, around 18-20 million used tires are disposed of every year.
It is therefore important that used tires be safely disposed of due to not only their large volume that exponentially increases garbage generation, but also because they pose the following environmental and safety hazards:
If used tires are thrown in landfills, they take up a lot of space and easily pile up. These piles trap methane gas that bubble up and destroy the landfill liners which allows waste to pollute surface and ground water.
When placed in wet soils, zinc, heavy metals and other toxins such as vulcanization and rubber chemical in tires may leak into the groundwater.
Tires piling in yards harbor rats and become breeding grounds of mosquitoes that carry and transmit diseases.
Burning of tires or illegally dumping them in forests, ravines, empty lots, and deserts lead to ground and air pollution.
Fortunately, there are ways and services offered to dispose of used tires safely. The following is a list of agencies to contact who are known to dispose of or reuse used tires.
