Trailers, RVs, vehicles, fifth-wheel campers, bicycles, wheelbarrows, tricycles, scooters, and remote-control cars all share one thing in common. All tires come with extended service life as they range between 3 and five years, contingent on various factors like their conditions, maintenance, and usage.
When it is time to replace tires that have worn out, people have to decide. Since most dumps and landfills don’t accept tires made of rubber, a second option must be in place before the replacement. Therefore, it is a plus that automotive services offer their customers the possibility to dispose of their tires for a minimal cost. Alongside the disposal cost, most states also have scrap tire disposal taxes ranging from $0.25 to $25.
How To Avoid Old Tire Disposal Fee?
Yes, it is possible to get around the Scrap Tire disposal fee. Naturally, you have to be prepared to keep your old tires following the replacement. It’s unfortunate, but most consumers don’t have the necessary equipment or the skills to replace old tires. Instead, they choose auto service companies that specialize in tire installation. If you request one or a set of two or fire new tires, you’ll be asked your preferred disposal method. At this point, you can decide to pay the old rubber tire disposal fee. If you are not willing to pay the additional cost, you can always retain the old tires.
There are various ways to save money on a disposal fee for the tires you have discarded. For example, based on your specific circumstances, it could be possible to accomplish the following:
- Planters – Cut around the rim of the old tire to make it appear jagged. Make a small cut with the same diameter as the old tire. Paint the tire of the old one for a more attractive look with vivid colors like orange, pink, yellow, white, red, or purple. Pour the filling of dirt, then add the flowering plant and water to complete the project.
- Garden Retainer Wall – Are you searching for a distinctive retainer wall for your garden? If yes, then look no further than your old tires. With various sizes and shapes, your tires can make a unique retention wall. For more individuality, paint each tire in a distinct color. You can try multiple colors, such as green, blue, purple, teal, turquoise, and lime.
- Mulch – Make your old tires rubber mulch. The US Environmental Protection Agency “EPA” encourages Americans to recycle their old tires. This is an excellent way to reuse your old rubber bicycle ATV, truck, and cargo trailers. With a slicing tool, break the rubber up into chunks or strips. You can also dye the mulch made of recycled rubber green, red or blue before putting it in the vicinity of your flowers, trees, and shrubs.
- Outdoor Table – Convert your old automotive tires into a table for outdoor use. Instead of painting the tires, wrap them with durable, weatherproof twine. Paint the outside of the tire with a waterproof adhesive. Cover the tire with twine at the top until you reach the base. This is the unique outdoor table within your community.
- Outdoor Mirror – Make your old bicycle tires into the perfect mirror for your garden. Start by giving the old tire a fresh coat of paint the way you prefer. Apply a thick layer of adhesive on the outside of the mirror and the inner rim of the tire. Push the mirror with force against the tire‘s rim while trying to ensure it is centered. Install a wall hook at the back, top of the tire. It will hang on a wall.
