Proper tire disposal is easier than you think...and more important!

Did you know that, each year, hundreds of millions of rubber tires are used? It’s true! Think about all the things that use tires, including your vehicles, motorcycles, trailers, trucks, motor homes, etc. Most of them use at least four tires and a spare, and all of those old tires have to be replaced, at some point. But just what, exactly, are you supposed to do with all the old tires? While many people are not quite sure, what you do with them actually makes a big difference to our world.

If tires are not properly disposed of, they can wreak havoc on the environment. Piles of old tires cause an environmental health risk, because they are combustible. Tire burns can leak toxic chemicals into the water supply, as well as fumes into the air. When tires burn, they release harmful chemicals such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, benzene, phenols, butadiene, and styrene. Because of this, it is important to get rid of old tires properly.

One way to accomplish that is to have the old tires, or any other bulk garbage removal, done by a responsible junk removal service. At Capital Junk, we know how to properly dispose of old tires. All you need to do to get rid of junk is gather it together and give us a call. We will be out to pick it up and then make every effort to ensure that proper disposal follows.

  1. The Junk Removal business is one of the easiest businesses to get a start in, all you need is a few hundred dollars to purchase a used pickup truck and $20 for a can of paint to put your name and contact information on the side of the truck.
