As required by the Amended Regulation 84/03 under the Ontario Waste Diversion Act, Ontario Tire Stewardship (OTS) has calculated the 2016 Tire Stewardship Fee (TSF) using the actual 2015 tire supply figures and Used Tires Program (UTP) costs. The product of this calculation is then applied to determine the applicable TSF rates to be remitted by Stewards when reporting the supply of tires according to the Tire Classifications set-out in the Tire Classification document posted on the OTS website here. Note that the Tire Classifications are unchanged from those currently in use.
These new TSF rates will be implemented effective May 1st, 2016. Any tires supplied into the Ontario market as of this date must be reported by Stewards according to the Tire Categories and TSF rates outlined in the table posted here.
Please do not hesitate to contact OTS with any questions regarding these revisions either by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 1-888-687-2202. We look forward to working with you to continue to deliver the Ontario Used Tires Program successfully.
