I'm no tree hugger but I go the official route and take it to the local dump and pay the environmental fee. I used to have issues with this since I would go through too many tires (both street and dirt) per year based on what Maryland will accept (I think 5 tires a year?).
I had no idea the dump had a limit. I guess I've never been over it. I tend to get all the use out of my tires.

I do have one sitting in my garage at the moment. However, I think I may try to reuse/recycle this into "building materials" for trail work.

Heh, I'm ok with the styrofoam ban. We do go through a lot of trash and there's no good way to deal with it all (even China won't take a lot of our junk/recyclables any more). Other things that are considered better for the environment don't make sense to me, e.g., electric cars. The mining process for the lithium and such is pretty nasty and they don't even know what they're going to do with all the industrial waste from production of the batteries or how to handle all of the nasty stuff in the batteries once they are worn out. Doesn't seem like moving forward to me... My interest in an electric motorcycle is mostly so I can do things quietly/stealthily. :thumbup: I also like the lower maintenance idea as I've always been lazy about it but I'm getting more lazy as I get older.
