When you replace your tires in New York State, retailers are required to recycle your old tires that are the same size and quantity to the new ones you are buying. A scrap tire handling fee is automatically added to the purchase price of all new tires.

In addition, Mavis Discount Tire will accept up to four scrap tires per year from residents for a nominal handling fee of $1.00 per tire, with no purchase necessary.  It is recommended that residents first call a location for information on hours, directions and drop-off policy.

The Household Material Recovery Facility accepts tires and other items worthy of special handling from Westchester County residents on a year-round, appointment-only basis. Some municipalities collect tires as well. Contact your local municipality to inquire if this service is available.

You can also refer to our Special Household Waste page for guidelines on other household items that require special handling.
