eTracks Launches the Sustainable Recovery Platform (eSRP) January 2022
eTracks Tire Management Systems launched its Sustainable Recovery Platform (eSRP) to over 6,500 Ontario tire collection sites, 100 service providers and over 50 producers. As a not-for-profit organization, eTracks provides Producer Responsibility Organization (PRO) services to the Ontario tire manufacturing industry by managing their end-of-life tire recycling obligations under the Resource Recovery and Circular Economy Act (RRCEA). eSRP’s development was spurred by the need for better data and insights into where, how and what becomes of recyclable materials put into market, and how much of that material is made into new products. eSRP will help to improve the way Producers and PROs are able to manage recyclable materials and regulatory compliance; and drive a more sustainable, circular economy.

eTracks Implements New Hauler Contracting Model
Throughout July 2021, Evolve Recycling Inc transitioned out of the hauling management business. Evolve will continue to operate its “Trillium” hauling business, and has partnered with eTracks to manage the delivery of used tires by other haulers to their facilities in Brantford and Moose Creek going forward. Our goal throughout this process was to ensure the uninterrupted flow of tires and payments to haulers.
Haulers who had contracts or agreements to haul tires for Evolve were provided with a new contract from eTracks. A joint letter from Evolve Recycling and eTracks was also provided by email on July 9, 2021 to all Evolve haulers.
eTracks held 4 webinars for the hauling community on May 19, May 26, June 2 and June 9 outlining this transition and the contents of the new contracts. We were pleased to note that more than 30 haulers attended these webinars. Haulers can access a copy of the webinar at:
eTracks looks forward to expanding the use of direct-to-hauler contracting with it...
