Do you have scrap or unwanted tyres laying around that you’re not quite sure what to do with? Perhaps working with vehicles is part of your everyday business and therefore waste tyres are inevitable, or maybe you’ve simply changed your own car, van or motorcycle tyres.
Either way, you’ll need a cost-effective and convenient tyre disposal solution that is compliant with all the appropriate waste disposal legislation. Please remember, as the waste producer the responsibility of ensuring your tyres are disposed of legally rests with you. To help you to manage the disposal and recycling of your scrap tyres, please read on to learn of a few different tyre disposal options.
Donate your tyres
Although your old tyres might not be any good for your vehicle anymore, they could be repurposed for something completely different! Why not reach out to your local zoo? Animals such as big cats and monkeys have tyres in their enclosures for exercise and enrichment.
If you happen to have a spare truck or tractor tyre, you could donate them to your local gym or sports club. Large tyres such as these are often in high demand as exercise tools.
You may think that taking your waste tyres to your local council tip for disposal is the most convenient option. However, it is important to note that not all household tips accept tyres, and those that do will likely charge, so make sure you check their website in advance. Additionally, local tips do not usually accept any commercial tyres.
