I just replaced two, and my garbage hauler won't take them. A: Since 1985, it's been illegal to put waste tires in with household garbage or to bury them in landfills. However, a local tire dealer or service station that sells tires should be able to take back your old tires for a small disposal fee, usually $1 to $3 per tire. If you buy new tires, the retailer - - under a 1988 law -- has to take back as many waste tires as you bought new. To cover the cost of properly disposing of the old tires, the retailer will usually charge you a disposal fee. Each American throws away nearly 300 million old tires, most of which end up in landfills and tire dumps that dot the landscape. These tires serve as breeding grounds for disease-carrying mosquitos and are potential fire hazards that can pollute air, water and soil if they catch fire. In Minnesota, we discard four million old tires each year. But here 95 percent of the waste tires now are processed for new uses or are being properly stored for processing. The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency runs a program to clean up old tire dumps; to control the transportation, storage, and processing of waste tires; and to provide grants and loans to encourage the recycling of waste urea. Some of the uses for waste tires include rubberized asphalt for roads and trails, new molder- rubber products, lightweight fill material for construction projects, and fuel sources for utility and industrial boilers.
