Manitoba’s tire recycling program operated by Tire Stewardship Manitoba includes the following main elements:
For every new tire sold an end-of-life tire will eventually be generated. Rather than taking up space in our landfills and posing a risk to human health and the environment, end-of-life tires are processed and used in environmentally responsible ways. To manage end-of-life tires generated in Manitoba, the retailer pays TSM a steward-fee for new tires sold in the province. 100% of fees collected go towards the operation of the tire recycling program.
Properly managed end-of-life tires reduce environmental risk and create jobs and economic development in Manitoba. Manitoba’s recycled tire products are sold locally and internationally. End-of-life tires can be used to make flooring products for agricultural, recreational and industrial use. They are used for artificial turf fields, rubberized asphalt, blast mats, geo-technical projects, energy recovery and other applications.
