Leave at the Dealer

Tire dealers are well-equipped to properly dispose of tires, so when you purchase new tires, leave the old ones with the dealer.

Ways to Reduce

Make Tires Last Longer

Properly caring for tires saves money, so you don’t need to replace the car’s tires as often. Try making your tires last longer by checking the tire pressure weekly, keeping them properly aligned and rotating them every 6,000 miles. 

Ways to Reuse

UpCycle into Swings or Planters

Consider turning old tires into swings or using them to create garden beds or ponds. Here’s a list of DIY ideas for your old tires.
