Passenger and light truck tires (with or without rims, greater than 12 inches but not commercial truck or tractor tires) can be brought to OVWRC for NO CHARGE. Residents are allowed to bring up to 10 tires/day/customer.
Please note, effective July 1st, 2019, the Centre will no longer accept tires less than 12 inches (i.e. bicycle, wheel barrow, etc.) and large truck/tractor tires for recycling. There are many other drop-off locations available to bring tires to: Click here to find additional tire collection sites near you.
In early 2019, the Centre registered with Resource Productivity and Recovery Authority (RPRA) as a tire collector so that the Centre may continue to receive used tires for recycling. The Centre was able to secure a tire hauler and processor who collects tires at the Centre and transports used tires to their facility.
The processor accepts passenger and light truck tires greater than 12 inches but not commercial truck tires or tires less than 12 inches such as bicycle, wheel barrow, dirt bikes, etc.
If tires are brought to the Centre that are not acceptable for recycling, they will be charged the current landfill tipping fee. We would encourage all Centre customers to visit RPRA’s website to find a collection site near you: https://rpra.ca/programs/tires/collectionsites/
Please note: Tires will no longer be accepted at the Environmental Days.
