How to Recycle Tires in New Jersey
When you don’t know how to dispose of tires, don’t just toss them in with the garbage. The rubber used to make tires is a valuable commodity, and you can do the environment a favor by recycling them for future use rather than burying them in a landfill.
The good news is that recycling tires in New Jersey doesn’t have to be an inconvenience. You have multiple options, ranging from free tire disposal to paying a small fee. Make sure you find the best way to recycle your tires, and make sure their valuable rubber goes to good use. To help, here’s a look at how to dump tires in New Jersey — in a way that gives them a second life.
Individual Tire Recycling
It’s far easier for an individual to recycle tires than it is for a business. Most cities and townships have municipal recycling centers that accept car and truck tires, as well as cardboard, aluminum, e-waste and many other materials. Also, if you’re replacing existing tires on a car or truck, ask your tire provider if they recycle tires. That might be the easiest solution, if available — just leaving them at the tire shop and having the pros there take care of the recycling.
Can’t find a place near you to recycle tires? Try visiting earth911.com, where you can conduct a search based on the type of material you want to recycle and your zip code. This should yield some results and options on where you can recycle your tires. Again, some options may be free, while others may charge a small fee.
Finally, try searching your county’s website for recycling centers in your area. If you live here in Middlesex County, the local government can help you find a recycling center that accepts the type of materials you need to get rid of.
Commercial Tire Recycling
Businesses with tires that need recycling can use many of the same options as individuals. However, given their status as businesses and the fact they often have oversized tires used for trucking and shipping, the charges associated with recycling commercial tires may be higher. That said, landfills also charge for dumping commercial tires — and recycling them is far more affordable.
