What to Do With Spare Tires

Old, unused tires are unsightly and hard to get rid of. Most trash collectors refuse to pick them up with your other garbage because of the overwhelming demand. But, you don’t want them taking up space in your garage or leave them out in your yard. Fortunately, there are some things you can do with used tires.

What to Do With Used Tires

  • Make rubber mulch. An increasingly popular way to reuse tires, rubber mulch can serve as a soft ground cover for swing sets, jungle gyms, and play areas. It also makes a good, weed-smothering garden ground cover. Just remove any metal attachments, hose down the tires, rent an industrial-strength shredder, and place the mulch for a safe, environmentally conscious alternative to wood mulch.
  • Protect your landscaping. Place tires around newly planted or struggling trees to ensure your lawnmower doesn’t damage them.
  • Make a tire swing. A childhood staple for many, this simple project provides hours of fun. Attach one end of a rope to a tire and the other to a tree, making sure each end is secure.
  • Create an elevated plant bed. Fill a tire with soil and plant a flower or veggie of your choice. Potatoes are an especially popular vegetable to plant in a stack of tires, as they retain heat and encourage growth. Paint the outside of the tire(s) to help this new addition to your landscape fit in with the rest of your yard.
