Tire recycling, or rubber recycling, is the process of recycling waste tires that are no longer suitable for use on vehicles due to wear or irreparable damage.
In most provinces, this is a provincially mandated fee and is charged when new tires are purchased to ensure proper disposal of used tires when they are at the end of their life.
In Ontario, the tire producer/manufacturer of the tires you are buying is responsible for the recycling fee that is included in your invoice. The tire producer/manufacturer in Ontario uses this fee to pay for the collection, transportation and processing of used tires.
