After reading this I cut two of them into pieces and put them in the trash can right on top so the guy could see them. No problem, thats where they will all go from now on.

Get a really hot burn pile and bury then in the bottom with lots of fuel (big branches etc..) !!

Bigger problem: Why are the cost(s) to dispose of tire(s) such a problem?

I can't tell you how many times I have stopped PDX "people" dumping their trash in one of our riding areas.
They have "rights" you know.........

What a great idea.
