During every stream cleanup we host, we pull as many tires out of the Mill Creek as we can drag, carry or canoe. On average, that amounts to about 100 a year, but there are always plenty more. Though we're sure every tire has its own story, ultimately we'd like to avoid that story ending in the Mill Creek.
Here are a few resources on how to recycle tires:
- Tire Discounters (all Cincinnati locations)
- Walmart Tire & Lube (all Cincinnati locations)
- Lakin Tire
- Junk King
Hamilton County Recycling, linked here, is the source.

Request a pick up or drop off appliances, electronics, furniture, tires and many other items you may consider "junk" around your home for a fee. If you’re dropping off tires, there are two rates. If the tires are off rim: $5/tire, on rim: $9/tire. If you want to schedule a pick-up (maybe you have a few other large items to dispose of), they have an $89 charge for pick-up, and the rates are off-rim $5, on-rim $7, plus the rate for the other items being picked up.
Note: You’re only allowed to transport ten tires at a time legally due to fire hazard.
