    <p>At the AMS Bike Co-op in Vancouver for a while we had to
      personally deliver the tires to an industrial recycler in a really
      bike-unfriendly part of town.  We would borrow the student
      society's pickup truck to do a delivery a few times per year. 
      They charged by the ton.  IIRC we also co-operated with other
      community bike shops to aggregate all our tires for a single
      delivery.</p>
    <p>Whether they take bicycle tires is really up to the individual
      recyclers, you have to call and ask for specifics.  Unfortunately
      the volumes are usually so low a lot of companies won't think it's
      worth the hassle - even if you pay a fee.</p>
    <p>At smaller shops where I've volunteered the tires just end up in
      the trash.<br>
