Ontario Tire Stewardship (OTS) Information and Giveaway!!

When I was looking for more eco-friendly places for our lovely blog here. I looked to Google to see what we have in Ontario. I found out we have a great place right in our province that recycles tires for turning them into products for your home, yard and community! The Ontario Tire Stewardship!

I don’t know about you , but I love recycled product. I also love the fact that OTS Used Tires Program eliminates the use of burning tires or putting tires in our landfills! This will not just benefit the air we breathe now but for future generations!

Here are some amazing facts about the OTS Used Tires Program

  • OTS is exceeding its objectives, and
    reached an exciting milestone of diverting its 50 millionth tire in Ontario in 2013!
  • Illegal dumping of tires has been virtually eliminated in the province thanks
    to the introduction of the program!
  • OTS has cleaned up 500,000 tire piles across Ontario!
  • Eco-friendly tire-derived products can take the form of rubber mulch, floor underlay, fitness
    flooring, outdoor pavers, roof shakes and new auto parts.These
    products are often much more durable and easier to install than common alternatives, withstand extreme temperatures and do not leach harmful toxins into our environment and much more!

For more facts check out this great fact sheet!

To find a Registered Tire Collector in your area click HERE! There is no tire disposal fee for dropping them off! It also tells you what they accept and don’t accept at that location! I found 3 locations in my small town! That is great news since I am looking at getting new tires soon so I need to dispose of my old ones!!

Here are some products you can purchased made from Recycled Rubber Tires:


For more information on the OTS program you can check out their website at

It is full of information of the OTS Used Tire Program! I hope you pass this information on to your friends and family members because this program benefits all of us!
