Vehicles, trailers, RVs, fifth-wheel campers, bicycles, wheelbarrows, tricycles, scooters, and remote-control cars have one feature in common. This one feature is rubber tires. All tires have a service life, ranging between 3 to 5 years, depending on several factors. These factors include maintenance, condition, application, and usage.
When it is time to replace worn-out tires, consumers are faced with a disposal decision. Since most landfills and dumps do not accept rubber tires, another alternative must be in place prior to the replacement. On a good note, automotive services offer their customers the option of disposal for a small fee. In addition to the disposal fee, most states have a Scrap Tire Disposal Tax, ranging between $0.25 and $25.
How To Avoid Old Tire Disposal Fee?
Yes, it is possible to avoid the Scrap Tire Disposal Fee. Of course, you must be willing to retain your old tires, following the replacement. It is unfortunate, but most consumers do not possess the proper equipment or skills to replace old tires. Instead, they turn to auto service providers that deal in tire installation. When you request one or a set of two or fire new tires, you will be asked about your preferred disposal method. At this time, you can decide to pay the old rubber tire disposal cost. If you do not want to spend the extra money, you can always retain the old tires.
There are several ways to avoid paying a disposal fee for your scrap tires. Depending on your circumstances, it may be possible to do the following:
- Flower Planters – Cut around the rim of the old tire to give it a jagged appearance. Dig a small hole, the same diameter as the old tire. Paint the old tire to give it eye appeal, utilizing vivid colors like pink, yellow, orange, white, red, or purple. Pour the opening full of dirt, add the flowering plant, and water to complete the task
- Garden Retainer Wall – Are you looking for a unique retainer wall for your garden? If so, look no further than your old tires. With a variety of sizes, your old tires will make the most unique garden retainer wall. To add more uniqueness, paint each tire a different color. Try a sequence of colors like green, blue, purple, teal, turquoise, and lime
- Mulch – Convert your old tires into rubber mulch. The US Environmental Protection Agency “EPA” is encouraging Americans to recycle their old tires. Well, this is a great way to recycle your old rubber bicycle, ATV, truck, and cargo trailer tries. Utilizing a heavy-duty snip, cut the rubber into chunks or strips. You can also dye your recycled rubber mulch a green, red, or navy blue before placing it around your trees, flowers, and shrubs
- Outdoor Table – Convert your old automotive tires into an outdoor table. Instead of painting your old tires, you can wrap them with a durable, weatherproof twine. Coat the exterior of the old tire with a waterproof adhesive. Starting at the top, wrap the old tire with twine, continuing until reaching the base. This will be the most unique outdoor table in your neighborhood
- Outdoor Mirror – Convert your old bicycle tires into a mirror for your garden. Start by giving the old tire a fresh coat of paint, your choice. Apply a thick layer of adhesive around the edge of the mirror and interior rim of the tire. Firmly push the mirror against the rim of the tire, trying to keep it centered. Install a wall hook on the top, back of the tire to hang on a wall
