Tyre Disposal

Post by noodles on Wed Aug 28, 2013 5:32 pm

We have been having a good clear-out of the cellars, but the municipal site would not take tyres, we have three old tyres, it would not be a crisis if they stayed but having done a quick search I can find lots of info. confirming the recycling sites no longer take them but no alternative disposal options...any ideas?

The otherwise helpful man at the dechetterie shrugged, when asked confused

Wonder why things get dumped down dark lanes at night??!!

Bury them? If you can find someone filling in a big hole somewhere, or one of those mounds covered in plastic and car tyres you see on farms, ask there. Other than that, Im stumped.

Ill be interested to hear your solution.

your local farmer may take them to cover his winter feed or paint them white and plant flowers in them sunny

Thanks for all the ideas everyone. I already have a couple, being used for a variety of purposes, these came out of the goat pen and used to have the buckets in them stop them falling. As I already have a few, I thought they could go with the rest of the junk, but it seems they are destined to stay with me forever lol! .

I am still curious to know what the "officially approved" method of disposal is Question

I know my dechetterie doesn't take then and they also have no idea what I should do with them. I think the state has made a presumption that private individuals don't have tyres to dispose of, so I do not believe there is an actual official way. When chatting at my local garage he said that he has to pay to have them collected. I presume they are turned back into rubber on an industrial scale.
Perhaps as suggested you could just sneak them onto a farmers pile tongue

Some great ideas there Tony..so... the conclusion...... there are lots of great things I could do, but none of which I have the skills for.

Off out to search or some quiet lane suitable for fly tipping lol!

Hi Folks
Our local garage were we have the Landrover and MG serviced and who changes our tyres for us takes the old ones and stacks them .Once he has a full load he calls the tyre collection firm who call by and take them away.
