OARA Tire Take Back

Anisa Hero 2016


Over the last seven years, Ontarians have helped raise an astonishing $1,060,306 through the collection of 458,185 tires as part of our annual Tire Take Back events. The annual event, organized by Ontario Automotive Recyclers Association (OARA) and Ontario Tire Stewardship (OTS), in association with Ontario Federation of Agriculture (OFA), helps support the work of The Sunshine Foundation of Canada

The Sunshine Foundation of Canada makes dreams come true for children living with severe physical disabilities or life-threatening illnesses. During this year’s 8TH Annual OARA Tire Take Back event, from May 23- June 4, 2017, Ontario residents can drop off their used tires, free of charge, at participating Auto Recyclers across the province. Every single tire dropped off generates a donation to The Sunshine Foundation of Canada!

Through the donation of all tire collection fees, children within Sunshine’s Ontario network live out once-in-a-lifetime experiences that may otherwise not have been possible, like meeting their heroes, taking dream vacations, or for one special boy, interacting with dolphins in the wild.

So save your old tires and help make dreams come true.
