Ontario Tire Stewardship Fees Lowered

OTS Expenditure BreakdownOntario is reducing its tire stewardship fees for passenger, light truck and medium truck, effective May 2015.

The not-for-profit organization that manages the Used Tires Program in Ontario, Ontario Tire Stewardship, will decrease its passenger and light truck stewardship fees from $5.43 per tire to $4.75 per tire and medium truck tire stewardship fees from $14.65 to $12.95.

OTR tire stewardship fees will be maintained at their current levels for 2015, the organization stated.

“This is the third year we have been able to reduce the tire stewardship fee for Ontarians who purchase tires for their cars and light trucks,” said Andrew Horsman, executive director, Ontario Tire Stewardship. “This is a great accomplishment and reflects Ontarians support of the program and our organization’s commitment to keeping the Program running efficiently.”

The organization noted that tire stewardship fees are used to fund the collection, transportation and processing of scrap tires, and help fund the manufacturing of rubber products that can be sold back into the market in the form of household and commercial goods.

Under the Ontario’s Waste Diversion Act, the 2015 Tire Stewardship Fees were calculated using the actual quantities of new tires supplied in 2014 and the actual costs to collect, transport and recycle tires through the UTP during the year.
