How do I dispose of old tires?

There are many ways residents living in unincorporated Palm Beach County can get rid of their unwanted old tires:

  • Put old tires out with the trash on either garbage collection day - up to two (2) tires, off the rim, are collected curbside per year for FREE.
  • Take old tires to the Solid Waste Authority of Palm Beach County’s Customer Convenience Drop-off Center at the landfill. There will be a charge at this location.
    • Whole passenger tires or whole truck tires without rims will be charged the “passenger tire” rate of *$75/ton or *$7.50/cubic yard. (Tip Fee Schedule)
    • Oversized tires or mixed load tires will be charged a higher rate (*$190/ton or *$21.83/cubic yard). (Tip Fee Schedule)
    • Passenger tires, including tractor trailer tires, cut into eight (8) or more substantially equal pieces or oversized/off-road tires shredded to less than 4” x 4” x 2” pieces will be charged *$10/ton or *$2.65/cubic yard. (Tip Fee Schedule)

(NOTE: There are specific laws that commercial businesses have to follow.)
