How Junk Removal Companies Dispose of Tires

piles of old tires

Updated February 23, 2023

Hiring a junk removal company to remove a set or even a pile of old tires is a fast, simple way to get the job done without having to lift a finger.

Depending on the amount of tires you have to get rid of, a junk removal crew could potentially complete the removal in under 20 minutes.

That's much faster than the time it would take to load them up yourself and haul them to the nearest recycling facility for proper disposal.

Here's what to expect from the tire removal process...

Get Quotes to Compare Tire Removal Services

We recommend getting at least 2-3 quotes to ensure you're paying a competitive price.

One of the best ways to get great services for a competitive price, at a time that fits your schedule, is getting multiple quotes from local tire removal companies.

Enter the address where you will need service.

Hometown junk removal quote request form 3

Describe your project as clearly as you can, including roughly the amount of tires you need removed as well as any other important details that may impact how the tire removal is completed, such as limited accessibility or other mixed debris.

Select how many quotes you would like to request from local providers.

We recommend selecting "Up to 3" because the more quotes you get, the more information you'll be able to compare, like companies' cost, availability, and overall customer service.

The more quotes you can compare, the higher your chances of hiring the best company for the job.

After describing your project, we'll get your contact details so companies can reach out to you to provide a quote.

Once your request is submitted, you’ll receive a text alerting you when a company accepts your request and agrees to provide a quote.

The junk removal companies will then follow up with you directly to schedule a time to come out to your property and provide an accurate quote for your light demolition project.

Choose a Service Provider

Remember: There’s zero obligation to hire when getting quotes from junk removal companies, or any contractor for that matter.

Once you've gotten a handful of quotes from local junk removal companies, compare the information they've given you and choose the service that will best take care of your tire removal needs.

It's important to make sure you're getting a good price, but customer service and availability are just as important, so keep that in mind when choosing a junk removal company.

Tires Are Removed

Junk removal companies will send a crew of 1-2 workers to roll and/or carry tires from your property onto their truck/trailer.

If necessary, they may use dollies or other equipment to help them with their loading.

Unless the amount of tires you have is extreme, the removal should be fairly quick and completed within 10-30 minutes.

Pay Invoice

Once your tire removal project is completed, before leaving your home or business, the junk removal company will provide you with an invoice.

Oftentimes, they'll take a credit card or cash on the spot.

In some cases, you can call into the office to pay the invoice over the phone.

Be sure to discuss payment before hiring services so that expectations are clear ahead of time for both parties.

Tires Are Properly Recycled

After your tires are loaded and payment is arranged, the pros will then transport your tires to a local recycling facility.

Tires are repurposed and recycled in a myriad of ways, like:

  • Using an incinerator, boiler, or cement kiln to use the tire for energy
  • Rubberized asphalt
  • Playground mulch
  • Road embankments
  • Material for new tires

Tires are not allowed in landfills.
