NC 2% tire disposal tax

I just noticed on my receipt for some new Goodyears for my CJ-5 the 2% NC tire disposal tax. I'm buying the tires unmounted and rolling them to my truck and taking them home, and am not giving them any tire, nor am I taking my old ones off their rims, I'm keeping the old ones as backups. With the store not getting my old tires to dispose of, I dont think I should have to pay 2% per tire for them to remove imaginary tires. Anyone know if its wrong for them to be charging for that, or if its law no matter if you turn in old tires or not?

Here it works like a bottle deposit - the fee is for disposing of the new tires you just purchased when they are past their service life.

Here in Arizona, they charge you $2 per tire. But if you don't leave them behind, you don't pay. It may vary by state. I would call the shop and ask.

In NY it's $2.50 per tire even if you buy a new car and obviously there are no old tires to recycle.
