Used Tire Management Program

The Used Tire Management Program ensures tires are collected and processed in an environmentally sound manner. In 2002 Newfoundland and Labrador’s Waste Management Regulations banned the disposal of highway tires (rim size 24.5 inches or less) in landfills. This program gives residents a return-to-retailer service so they can properly dispose of used tires. A one-time environmental fee is applied when new tires are purchased.

Every year, MMSB’s Used Tire Management Program keeps 500,000 tires out of landfills, extending the lives of those landfills, protecting the natural landscape and conserving natural resources.
