It’s Illegal to Throw Away Old Tires

Recycle old tiresYou can’t throw away old tires into the garbage, nor can you dump them on public or private land. In 1985, Minnesota enacted the first state law for the management of scrap tires. Read more about Minnesota waste management laws, including tire disposal.

Tires are recyclable, so you simply have to find a place that accepts old tires for free or a nominal charge. Some consumers run into the problem of tire shops not wanting to accept and recycle tires not originally purchased from them. That’s not the case at the TireZoo!

We help you by accepting and properly disposing of old tires for a small fee. Old tires brought the the TireZoo in Anoka or Bloomington are picked up by a truck, transported to Green Man,  ground up, and recycled into other products.

Tire Disposal

  • Standard $5/tire
  • Specialty $10/tire
  • Semi/Farm $12/tire and up

Stop by the TireZoo or contact us today!

Learn more about the TireZoo

The TireZoo began in a small garage as a home based business in Bloomington, MN by Dan Wilkerson in 1979. A few years later Dan moved into a store front in Bloomington and hired his first employee. They were known as All Season Tire Co, and still are by many devoted customers.

The company grew, more employees were added, and their line of new and used tires expanded exponentially. In June of 1995 they opened their second location in Anoka, MN (also known to locals as Anoka Tire), and began helping people from as far away as Canada!

With the launch of their website TireZoo.com, their name TireZoo took shape and well, it’s just plain catchy! What makes the TireZoo Crew so intriguing is their interest in reaching out to customers and doing what it takes to save them money on tires and provide excellent service.

Their impressive inventory of new and used tires is the largest you’ll find. They sell many brands of new tires, wheels, and rims; yet have no corporate restraints, so they are able to offer used tires and other products and services their customers need – at incredibly affordable prices. The Tire Zoo will make sure you get what you need, help you put your tires on your vehicle, and take the time to answer all your questions.

They are the most accessible and friendly tire people you’ll find. We hope you’ll consider joining our team!

Cars Birthday Party Ideas and Games

We’ve created some fun car related birthday party games and activities that are simple and inexpensive. These car games will be appealing to young kids having a car themed birthday party, or simply at the right age to play party games that are a little different from the same ones they’ve played at previous parties.

Cars Birthday Party IdeasCar Party Games

Icy Roads

If it’s a warm day, this is a great game for outside. Otherwise, you may want to limit this game to the kitchen or laundry room and be creative on how to contain the melting ice.

Prep: Freeze a small car in a (small) block of ice using a small Tupperware container, yogurt container, etc. Let each child use his or her creativity on how to get the ice to melt. Or you may choose to start this game and allow it to be an ongoing game throughout the party, checking on the progress of the melting cars. Another variation could simply be to “guess how long it takes to melt” and have kids put their guesses in a bowl and choose the closest estimate later.

Object: The object of the game is to be the first to melt the ice around the car, get it thawed enough to race it on a given track or area to “win”. If you’d rather not have a “winner”, then have the object to get every to the “Finish” line.

 

Traffic Jam

This is a fun game that doesn’t need to have a designated winner, but will get kids really excited. The added “plus” of this game is the thinking and problem solving skills needed to play. It can be tailored for any age, depending on how complex your instructions are made.

Prep: Gather a bunch of matchbox cars, vehicle related toys, travel items, etc and place in large, unstructured pile in the middle of the floor.

To play: The kids will sit in a circle around the pile. You will read off a pre-written description of an item they need to find in the pile. Example: A Red Truck, A Chevy, Four Doors, Hatchback, Tow Hitch, etc. There may be more than one item that fits the description. Each child only needs to find one item. Give them a little time, and then tell them to return the items to the pile and listen carefully for the next instruction.

Make it More Difficult: Add more items, even unrelated like socks, plastic containers, etc, so that it isn’t as easy to find what they are looking for and/or make your instructions more detailed.

 

Mystery Travel Game

This is a remake of an age old favorite where kids have to reach in a paper lunch bag without looking and try to figure out the item inside by touch.

Prep: Put one car related item into each bag. Ideas include: sunglasses, tire pressure gauge, lug nut, key, keyring, driver’s license, gas cap, toy car, window scraper, driving glove.

Object: The object is to guess the items in the bags. You can reward the person with the most correct guesses.

 

Drive By the Rules

This is a variation of Simon Says, but make it car related. There is really no prep to this game, just tell the kids they can only do what the driver tells them.

  • Driver says hold your hands out like you’re holding a steering wheel.
  • Driver says turn to your right
  • Driver says turn left.
  • Driver says hit the break.
  • Driver says check your rear view mirror.
  • Drive says pretend to buckle up.
  • Driver says drive in a circle

If you play these games, we’d love to hear your ideas or how you added to them. If you have pictures you’d like to share, visit our Facebook page.
