If you want to recycle tires
We accept tires but will charge you $2.50 per car tire and $5.00 per truck tire
The cost to recycle a tire is usually more expensive than shredding them and putting them in the landfill, so we generally send them to the landfill. Technology is being developed to more efficiently recycle them so this will change, hopefully sooner than later.
Many items can be recycled that are not today because of the tremendous expense of the process, but that is changing. Some items can cost 10 times the new purchase price to recycle it, so for now they end up going in the landfill.
