Ontario Tire Stewardship

Ontario Tire Stewardship

Ontario Tire Stewardship (OTS) is an Industry Funded Organization (IFO) incorporated under Ontario’s Waste Diversion Act, to implement and operate the Used Tires Program. This province-wide scrap tire solution for On-road and Off-road tires supplied into the Ontario market, will divert scrap tires away from burning and landfilling to 3Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) processing and uses. Launched on September 1, 2009, the program will eliminate the “disposal fee” that consumers currently pay to get rid of their old tires – whether or not they are buying new ones -- making it easy and free for Ontarians to get their old tires recycled by dropping them off at registered Collectors across Ontario.
