    1. Car Batteries

    As the casing on the battery corrodes, chemicals leak into the soul and make their way into the water supply, and then eventually reach the ocean. According to Battery University, Lithium can cause landfill fires that burn underground for years! With that being said, there are a few ways to properly dispose of your batteries. One being to take it to a recycling center or you could also take it to your local auto parts store and some places will even pay you money for them.

    2. Car Tires

    Tires in general are not desired landfill because of the high volume of them and the 75% of void space. Over 300 million tires are scrapped each year. Landfill space is becoming more and more scarce. Luckily they are 100% recyclable . Tires also are a breeding ground for mosquitoes which is a big issue with the rise of West Nile Virus. Tire fires produce acid smoke which is harmful to both humans and our environment. The residue from the fire is an oily residue and those tires can also burn for weeks at a time since they cannot be extinguished. They also trap methane gases causing them to bubble to the surface. Here’s a few ways to properly dispose of your old tires. You can call your local recycling center and ask if they allow tires or you can check with your Regional EPA office for more information.
