Five years of success leads to lower Tire Stewardship FeesFive and a half years is a short amount of time to make a significant impact on an entire industry, but that’s exactly what we’ve done with tire recycling in Ontario.

75 million tires
Congratulations! Ontario has recycled over 75 million tires!
And that's all thanks to you--Ontario drivers who take your old and worn-out tires to registered tire collectors so we can make sure that they get responsibly recycled. We don't just collect those tires here. We're proud to work with Ontario companies that take your tires and recycle them into new products right here in Ontario. Did you know that you can buy locally-made recycled tire products at your local home improvement stores and big-box stores? Now that's what we call taking tires full circle!
