Ontario Tire Stewardship has inspired communities across Ontario to rethink the way we see and use old tires. We are proud of our work, and the work done by our network of Ontario Stewards, Collectors, Haulers, Processors and innovative Recycled Product Manufacturers to ensure a more sustainable future. Together, we have raised awareness, changed perceptions and helped establish a multi-million-dollar industry, creating hundreds of new jobs in Ontario while diverting nearly 120 million tires from landfills.
Since September 2009, instead of burning tires or sending them to landfills, their component materials have been reused and recycled into innovative products. These materials have had a profound effect on the architecture, construction, landscaping and property management industries.
The groundwork we’ve laid and the innovation we’ve inspired will help ensure a thriving tire recycling industry in Ontario for years to come.
