Ontario Used Tire Recycling Program

Help keep tires out of landfill by returning your old, used ones to Canadian Tire – we'll make sure they're recycled!

HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS

Live in Ontario? Participate in this great program by dropping off used tires at Canadian Tire for recycling, at no charge to you. We'll make sure the tires are turned into useful items such as rubber surfaces for children's playgrounds.

WHICH LOCATIONS TAKE USED TIRES?

All Canadian Tire locations in Ontario, except Toronto Eaton Centre, will accept your used tires.*

TRANSFORMING TIRES

The pliable and play-safe surfaces of the environmentally sustainable, accessible playgrounds built as part of our Play Finds A Way initiative include rubber sourced from more than 20,000 recycled tires.

THINKING GLOBALLY

Working together, we can ensure used tires are recycled responsibly. New products manufactured with recycled materials have a smaller carbon footprint, and are more sustainable.

USED TIRE RECYCLING PROGRAM DETAILS

Starting on January 1, 2019 in Ontario, the Tires Regulation under the Resource Recovery and Circular Economy Act, 2016 requires tire producers to be responsible for collecting and managing tires supplied to customers in Ontario by reusing, retreading and recycling them. 

The regulation establishes mandatory and enforceable tire collection and management targets for producers. 

The regulation gives producers flexibility to meet their targets by either making their own arrangements for collecting and managing tires, or by contracting a producer organization responsible to act on their behalf.

When you buy new tires at Canadian Tire, we charge a recycling fee that goes toward the cost of collecting, transporting and processing used tires.**

 

*This program is available to Ontario residents only. ** An Eco Fee is applied to the sale of each new tire at time of purchase.
