Scrap Tires

How do I properly recycle/dispose of scrap tires?

  • Leave the old tire at the retailer where the new tire was purchased and installed. They are required to accept them by Mississippi law without charging an additional disposal fee above the retail cost of the tire.
  • Mississippi residents can also take scrap tires to one or more scrap tire collection sites in their county. Every county by law is required to have at least one scrap tire collection site established for the residents of the county. Call the County Board of Supervisors office to find out where the nearest scrap tire collection site is located or click here on Recycling Directories to view a listing of county and municipal locations across the state for disposal of scrap tires.
