    When you change the tires of your car, what do you do to the old tires?

    What would you like to do to the old tires and how much are you prepared to pay for disposal of four tires?

    Usage of old tires depends entirely on yourself. Mentioned below few ways to get rid of them without actually getting rid of them!

    Use old tires in the garden. Place in yard and fill with potting soil. Add your favorite plant or flowers for a decorative accent to increase curb appeal.

    Create a training area and obstacle course for older children who participate in sports. Remove any debris from used tires by thoroughly washing with detergent and rinse.

    Bring used tires to a retailer, service station or local recycling facility that accepts and must then recycle tires.

    Notice when or if a local municipality offers a tire amnesty. The program allows local citizens to deposit a limited number of used tires at a drop off site for free.

    Sell used tires in scrap or organize a yard sale for salvage and use to make new tires. If the used tires are threadbare, recycling is a great alternative.

    Make a tree swing for hours of fun. Choose a tree with a strong branch and decide on a horizontal or vertical swing. Purchase nylon rope specifically made for weight bearing.

    I take them to the dump, where they have a recycling drop-off for tires. All tires are used by the county for public works projects including playground ground cover, erosion control, and other such uses. If you have the tire places around here recycle the tires for you it is, if I remember correctly, $4 per tire. I live a mile from the dump, so I generally prefer to take them myself than to pay $16-$20 for them to do it.
