Register for the Program


Following the steps below and the resources provided will help you understand your role in the Program, how to register and the support that OTS will be providing to you after you register.


STEP 1: Who Should Register?

The Used Tires Program has defined five roles who need to register:

  1. Stewards: Import or Manufacture New Tires
  2. Collectors: Accept and Store Used Tires
  3. Haulers: Transport Used Tires to a Processor
  4. Processors: Convert Used Tires into Recycled Rubber
  5. Recycled Product Manufacturers: Manufacture New Products from Recycled  Rubber


Before you register, you need to decide which of these roles applies to you. The guides below are designed to help you decide.
