From 2009 to 2018, Ontario Tire Stewardship inspired communities and residents across Ontario to rethink the way we see and use old tires. We are proud of our success, 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 raised awareness, changed perceptions and helped establish a multi-million dollar industry, creating hundreds of new jobs in Ontario while diverting over 135 million tires from landfills.
Instead of burning tires or sending them to landfills, OTS helped ensure their component materials were reused and recycled into innovative products. These materials had a profound effect on the architecture, construction, landscaping and property management industries across the province.
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.
