If you have some old tires in the garage, here's the good news: They are recyclable. And it's important to make sure your old tires go to the right place (and not the landfill). The easiest thing to do is to take them to a retailer who specializes in tire replacement; they are set up to properly dispose of old tires (there may be a small fee). Communities also have recycling drives throughout the year, so ask your municipality when the next one is. And remember: Never, ever try to dispose of them in a landfill. Tires are nonbiodegradable and flammable, making them a hazardous material to put into landfills.
