As we buy a vehicle to use it, it is going to be only natural to see the tyres or the rubber coverings of the wheels wearing off as we travel more distance. You cannot actually say how long they will last because that depends on how much you use the vehicle. Someone who does not travel a great distance daily might be able to use their rubber coverings for a longer time than someone who uses the vehicle often and that too to cover great distances.
Whether you have to start using new rubber coverings for your wheels sooner or later you have to always know what to do when that time comes with your already used rubber coverings. The right way of disposing of those used rubber coverings is repurposing them. When you do not repurpose them and just throw them away you are going to create problems as these rubber coverings are dangerous things to be laying around somewhere.
Rubber coverings that lay around can always be a great source for disease spreading insects. For example, if you choose to throw away your used rubber coverings without sending them to recycling, when it rains the rainwater is going to gather on the rubber coverings. That is then going to become a great breeding ground for disease spreading insects like Dengue mosquitoes. That means while being something not good for the soil and harming the environment the rubber coverings can also contribute to making humans sick and even die from a disease like Dengue fever.
Being a Fire Hazard
Rubber coverings people have thrown away like this can also become dangerous fire hazards. If they catch fire it is not easy to put them out. Moreover, the chemicals and toxic fumes they release to the environment while they are burning are not good for humans, animals or plants. Having to fight burning rubber coverings is not something anyone wants to do.
Other than these things, we generally know that this kind of rubber coverings do not sit well with the environment if we just dump it where we want to. It can take over fifty years for the rubber coverings to fully decompose naturally. When other materials are added to the mix like when creating rubber coverings, this can make the decomposing time be even longer. Therefore, dumping rubber coverings is really not the right choice.
The right way to get rid of rubber coverings is always repurposing them. There are professionals who can help you with that.
