Over six million tires are disposed of each year. This is equal to one scrap tire per person per year in the United States.
Tires are recycled into many different products we use today.
Store tires in an enclosed building to keep them dry and ready for prompt shipping without additional handling. If tires must be stored outdoors, cover the pile to help minimize the collection of water and avoid attracting vermin. Store tires in a sunny location to allow evaporation of standing water and to kill heat-intolerant mosquito larvae.
