Beach Town Vandals Dump Hundreds of Tires

Over the past few weeks, hundreds of tires have been dumped outside tire dealerships in Myrtle Beach, S.C.

Over the past few weeks, hundreds of tires have been dumped outside tire dealerships in Myrtle Beach, S.C.

"We came out here one day, and we noticed this big pile out here that wasn’t ours," Mason Tire and Auto Service manager Ron Howard told local media. The shop’s back lot usually contains 40-50 tires, but now the stack has more than 200.

"It’s going to cost me about $400 dollars just to get rid of these used tires," said Howard, referencing the $2 per tire cost for disposal. "I’m going to pay for it because it’s the right thing to do."

On top of the disposal costs, Howard told media plans to purchase locks, chains and a security camera to stop the dumping on the property.

Another nearby tire repair shop reported that over the past few nights, someone dumped more than 40 tires in its dumpster.

According to Myrtle Beach Police, unlawful dumping is a misdemeanor punishable by a fine ranging from $200-$1,000, depending on the size of the articles, as well as between eight and 24 hours of community service trash pick-up.
