You could try this site, if your French is up to it.

http://www.dechets-chantier.ffbatiment.fr/rechercher-centres.aspx?dep=22&page=ville

The information regarding déchèteries on it might not be exact, you can however phone up any of the establishments listed to check.

It is worth remembering that quite a lot of déchèteries only let local residents use them and many have checking systems in place.

I did think the potatoes route but google info suggests about toxin releases from the rubber and all the other chemicals in them, ally pretty unpleasant that can find their way into food grown in them. Anyay, I've put them in a shed - out of site etc, etc. Thanks for the advice, everyone.

wineoclock@1pm You could always drop in to your local Marie and ask them where you should take them. I've always found mine to be very helpful with any queries I have had.

depending on how many you have someone might like them for free to use them for making xcountry tyre jumps or stands for jumps for horses.

Try clicking on the links I posted and reading them.

They are symbols so no problems with translation.

I don't know why I even bother trying to help people these days...

Lumbersexual, Decheteries will NOT take bare tyres.They will only accept tyres still on their rims in to the scrap.

Thanks Jack for the information. I did google the distances and I think the nearest was a half hour away which is a lot for 7 tyres.

Place on top of one another fill with soil and compost a couple of poles inside to stop movement and plant with flowers, paint them if you don't like black.
