Tire Disposal Question - August 13, 2017, 10:04 AM

I have about 25 moto tires I need to throw away. It looks like the Ffx landfill is charging $5/tire. Are there any other legal option for disposing of them at a lower cost or for free?

Pay someone in Loudoun $2.50/tire to take them to the Loudoun landfill.

OK, I see it on the website there. I'm pretty sure that's a typo. When I was dumping there, they did it by weight. I think it's $5 for up to 10 tires. Or, you can just drop it off at Proco. They are $1.5 per tire.

Frederick county md won't even let you bring more than 5 per year per driver. I have to bring my wife with me when I bring tires to the dump so some of the tires can be disposed of by her... The max for one load is 10 tires here.

Too bad there are no plasma gasification power plants around. They love used tires. They would have paid you for them.

If you build a dry stack, masonry, or railroad tie retaining wall in your yard, the tires make an excellent construction material. tie them together like one long tire sandwich and use them with the sand and rock backfill behind the wall.

They are great as a kid's climbing course if you have a steep hill. Drill drain hole cores in the rear lower margins, pattern them on a steep incline, bedding them in with a little sand, chain them together, and partially fill them with mulch.

Or put one in a contractor's garbage bag with other junk and set it in the trash. Repeat. The tires will be gone in 26 weeks.

throw them in dumpster or add one a week to your household garbage can.

Do something fun with them.. ring them around a light post in your neighborhood.

He could probably take them himself. They don't ask where you're from, unless they check your license plate in the system. Loudoun County does have a tax sticker but for a while I never stuck it to the windshield so I don't think they look for that either.
