I have a shop paying me $2 per tire for removal. I made $90 yesterday on 2 truck loads of tires. Some tires are still good so they will be sold. The local dump charges $300 ton 15 cents per pound for tire removal. My town is having a tire pickup day where they will drive around neighborhoods and pick up 4 tires per household. My plan is to drive around developments leaving every house 4 tires. I make money, and dispose of them semi-legally. I also have an agreement with the shop to continue removing the tires so I will have a constant cash flow for some time. I live in an area with commuters the shop averages 4 sets per day. Also made out like a bandit a week ago. A transmission shop closed up and needed to clear out the shop. I got paid $200 to clean out the shop top to bottom. I got to keep all the metal in the shop. Made $835 in scrap. So all you s who make fun of me the joke is on you now. For a day of my time I made over 1k.
