Lifecycle of a Tire

Lifecycle of a Tire


We all want a greener world. We save energy, reduce water usage and waste,
and recycle. Everybody’s doing their part. But what about your tires? With proper maintenance,
your tires can last a long time— —but they won’t last forever. Whatever you do, don’t toss your used tires
along the roadside, in the woods, or the local landfill. Take your flat tires, your worn tires, your
scrap tires, and your just plain old tires to your nearest Ontario Tire Stewardship Registered
Tire Collector. You can drop off up to four tires at a time
for free. Through its used tires program, OTS will make
sure your tires are recycled responsibly by sending them to a processing centre where
your donated tires will be ground up into pieces. The fiber and metal will be separated
and then processed into crumb rubber. This crumb rubber is used by companies to
create a host of everyday products like doormats, roofing and patio tiles, paving stones, landscape
mulch for your garden and more. From Black to Green. Ontario Tire Stewardship—rolling
old tires into green products.
