The number of tires being made available for recycle is growing, as attention and demand for tire derived products increases. In addition, provincial and government programs exist to clean-up scrap tire stockpiles and illegal dumping sites with a long-term goal of no scrap tires sent to the landfill. The tire processing stage is sorted into four operations: whole tires, stamped (cut) tires, chipped (shredded) tires, and ground (crumb) rubber.

It is estimated that in Canada and the United States, over 350 million tires are discarded each year. Waste tires consist of approximately 70-80% on average of rubber. The rest is a combination of reinforcing materials (steel wires and plastic fibrous cords).

Used Tire Waste Diversion Program

The Used Tires Diversion Program was approved in April 2009, and will begin in the fall of 2009.

The new industry-funded program, to be delivered by Ontario Tire Stewardship under the guidance of Waste Diversion Ontario, will deal with the more than 12 million used tires generated in Ontario each year. It will:

Recycle 91 per cent of used car and truck tires into higher end uses in year one
Clean up the nearly three million used tires stockpiled across the province
Include the recycling of large industrial and off-road tires, which are currently not collected or recycled.

Include funding for public education programs and research into greener ways to recycle tires.
