Can I Throw Old Tires In The Trash?
Never throw waste tires in the trash! At best, you regular trash company will notice the tires, pull them out, and leave them for you to dispose of properly. At worst, nobody will notice the tires, and they could cause major pollution—or even start a fire in the landfill! In between these two extremes is the most likely option—your regular waste management company hits you with a big fine for disposing of tires improperly.

Can’t I Recycle Those Old Tires in New Jersey?
Many people are aware that tires can be recycled. Unfortunately, around the world and in New Jersey, there are far fewer recycling factories than there are used tires to dispose of. Since old rubber decomposes over time, the old tires can’t just “sit around” until they are needed. While recycling is a great option, disposing of waste tires in an effective and efficient manner is much more important.
Do I Have to Pay To Get Rid of Old Tires in NJ?
