When it’s time to get new tyres, you usually don’t replace just one. That means you almost never have just a single old tyre that’s taking up space. You could make a tyre swing, but that only takes care of one tyre. So what are you supposed to do with the rest?
Most people just stuff them into a corner of a garage, or just leave them sitting by the trash bins in the hopes that the local garbage collector take them. In most situations, they're not accepted in your regular waste service, which means they won’t even make it out of your yard. Don't let those old tyres get in your way or become an environmental hazard!
