R2R Program FAQ – Answers to Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a limit to the number of scrap tires I can take to an R2R participating retailer?
Yes. The R2R participating retailers have limited space to accommodate scrap tires that may be dropped off by consumers. Therefore, a limit of ten (10) scrap tires has been established. If you have any more than 10 scrap tires, it is a good idea to give the retailer a call in advance.

 

Will there be any charge(s) to drop-off scrap tires at the select retailers?
No. However, if the tires you drop-off are not rimless, you can expect to pay a de-rimming charge. Call the R2R participating retailer in advance to determine the re-rimming charge, as retailer’s charges for de-rimming services vary.

 

Will the select retailers accept all types of tires?
No. While the program is designed to facilitate passenger and light truck tires – if you have other tire types, call the R2R participating retailer in advance to determine if they have the space and the resources to safely handle the larger tires.

 

Why must the tires be rimless?
The scrap tire recycle program and contracted processors only have the capacity to recycle rubber, not metal.

 

What happens to tires once they are dropped off at the R2R select retailers?
Tires are then picked-up by SSTC collectors and transported to a processor in the province. There are two processors in the province that recycle the rubber and convert it into a variety of different products. Examples of products include: landscape mulch, playground safety surfaces and sports fill, just to name a few!

 

Why must I record the number of tires dropped off on the Consumer-Scrap Tire Tracking Form?
Every tire that comes into the SSTCs programs must be accounted for to facilitate the SSTCs reporting requirements. Therefore, each time you drops off tire(s) you will be asked to provide your name and record the number and types of tires being dropped off on the Consumer – Scrap Tire Tracking Form. The R2R participating retailers submit the tracking form into the SSTC each month. Random verification of information that is recorded in this form will occur periodically throughout the year.

If you have any other questions about the Return to Retailer (R2R) Program, or any other SSTC programs, please contact the SSTC office at 306-721-8473.

 

When in doubt, please contact the participating retailer nearest you:
