About the OARA 2017 Tire Take Back Event
The OARA Tire Take Back event is an eleven-day tire recycling blitz, hosted by Ontario Auto Recyclers Association (OARA) and its members and Ontario Tire Stewardship (OTS), with support from registered tire haulers and processors. The event’s goal is to not only recycle thousands of used tires across the province, but through these efforts, raise funds for The Sunshine Foundation of Canada.
Residents and farmers with old tires they want to have recycled can take them in to over 30 participating OARA auto recyclers, and the recycler will donate any Collector fees they normally receive from OTS. In addition, participating Haulers will also contribute a portion of the fees they normally receive. On average a donated passenger or light truck tire will generate about $1.00 and an agricultural tire will generate $4.00 per tire.
