  • Tire Disposal
  • Oil Recycling

Tire Disposal

Go Green in Hazleton, PA

Lehigh Tire cares about the communities we serve. After all, we grew up here and still live here today!

That's why we urge everyone to consider the environment when disposing old tires.

For just a nominal fee, Lehigh Tire will properly dispose of your tires regardless of where you bought them. We'll ensure your old tires are recycled in an environmentally friendly manner.

What happens to recycled tires?

  • If your used tires aren’t greatly worn, they can be used safely by another driver. If your tires are completely worn, they can be sent to a recycling plant where they can be reused as road material or even building material.

Don't burn your tires or add them to the landfill. Help us create a healthy, sustainable environment when you let us recycle your tires at our shop.

Oil Recycling

You can make a difference by recycling your used motor oil.

Lehigh Tire accepts used oil from our regular customers as a courtesy to help the environment.

However, if you are not a regular customer or have large amounts to dispose of, the best way of locating a nearby collection center is to visit the website www.Earth911.org. This website allows you to search for collection centers by ZIP code. It also has information on recycling other items like batteries, electronics, and aluminum.

Did you know:

  • If you recycle just two gallons of used oil, it can generate enough electricity to run the average household for almost 24 hours. Used motor oil can also be recycled for other purposes, too.

Cars are an indispensable fact of life for most of us. So, too, are abundant and clean supplies of drinking water. What we do with the used oil from our cars plays an important role in balancing our desire for convenient transportation with our desire for a clean and healthy environment today and for future generations.

We are all familiar with recycling newspapers, aluminum cans and glass and plastic bottles, but you may not be aware of the efforts of the petroleum industry and other groups to promote used motor oil recycling: providing convenient collection sites for the purpose of keeping used motor oil out of our waterways and ground water supplies and getting used oil into the recycling system.

What happens to recycled motor oil?

  • Motor oil has value even after it has been drained from an engine. The oil you take to a collection center to be recycled saves energy. It can be reprocessed and used in furnaces for heat or in power plants to generate electricity for homes, schools, and businesses. It can also be sent to a refinery that specializes in processing used oil and re-refined into lubricating base oils that can be used to formulate engine oils meeting API specifications.

Used motor oil that is collected by "do-it-yourselfers" is critical to the used oil recycling system. Next time you change your own oil, remember, you can make a difference by recycling the oil from your car, truck, motorcycle, boat, recreational vehicle or lawnmower. By dropping off your used motor oil today, you help prevent pollution and conserve energy for a safer and healthier tomorrow.
