Used tires can usually be traded in at tire businesses at the time new tires are purchased.
Tires can also be placed at the curb for regular trash pick-up or brought to the York County Resource Recovery Center (YCRRC) for disposal as long as they are off the rim, have any excess soil removed from them and do not exceed a maximum outside diameter of 32 inches and a maximum tread width of 12 inches. Some waste haulers limit the number of tires that can be placed curbside per garbage pick up. Contact your waste hauler directly to inquire about their tire acceptance policy. Any disposal loads consisting solely of tires that are delivered to the YCRRC are subject to a disposal fee of $100 per ton (minimum of $20 for 400 lbs. and prorated beyond 400 lbs.) Disposal loads that contain tires mixed with other wastes are charged the regular YCRRC disposal rate. For more information, click here.
Tires that exceed a maximum outside diameter of 32 inches or a maximum tread width of 12 inches cannot be disposed of at the YCRRC.
