To find out who's buying them in your area, call a place that fixes and repairs. The typical rate for a scrap tire is YOU have to PAY them to take them off your hands. The process of: gas trip to go from original to scrap yard to shredder to steel belt wire cleaning through more shredding accompanied by handlers is actually more costly than you would think. At least the soft chunks at the playground are great for the kids.

most used tire shops will do it they will take the tires and fix them up to put treads and everything back on but the tires are not as good as the old ones

If the tire just has a whole and could otherwise pass inspection, it's worth $5 to a used tire store. Other wise you pay $3 for disposal. I doubt even places that recycle tires would pay for them. There's a endless supply coming in daily.
