Waste tyre disposal

Can you put old tyres in a skip?

No, you cannot. Rubber tyres are considered hazardous waste so they have to be disposed of properly through licensed recycling facilities. This is predominantly because tyres can become breeding grounds for pests, they’re made of flammable materials and can release toxic gases if burnt.
