Tires can be disposed of for as little as a few dollars for recycling. The cost to our environment is a great deal more. Often tires are burnt in campfires in the forestlands. When burnt a standard passenger tire can generate about two gallons of oil, which is left to contaminate the soil and water. Tires also provide a source of water to spawn mosquitoes.
There are many resources and locations to dispose of solid waste and recycling.
