RecycleDrive 2015

CAA Autogreen and Ontario Tire Stewardship (OTS) are proud to announce the fifth annual RecycleDrive event.

From October 14-30, Ontario residents can drop off old batteries, oil1, and tires2 for free3 at participating CAA Approved Auto Repair Services (AARS) facilities during regular business hours.

For each Ontario resident that participates in the 2015 RecycleDrive campaign, CAA will plant a tree in that participant’s name.

For a list of participating locations, visit www.CAASCO.com/Recycle

The CAA AARS facility that collects the most used tires can WIN a revitalization package, which includes $20,000 worth of landscaping greenery and innovative recycled tire products from Ontario Tire Stewardship (OTS) and CAA SCO, to help re-green a school building, grounds or play space of their choice!

Recycle your batteries, oil and tires all year long

CAA can help make sure your batteries (automotive, household and marine), tires, oil and oil filters are properly recycled all year long. By choosing to recycle, you’ll help reduce landfill and be a friend to the environment.
