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.
