Haulers

A business which transports tires in Ontario to a site for processing, reuse, retreading or disposal is classified as a Hauler under eTracks Tire Management Systems.

Haulers play a key role to the process of tire recycling since they serve as a critical link between the Collectors and Processors. They ensure that tires are recycled in an environmentally friendly manner by directing used tires to an appropriate recycling facility.

Evolving framework

As outlined in the Tires Regulation Haulers need to fulfill the following conditions under the new framework:

  • Register with the Resource Productivity and Recovery Authority (RPRA), providing specific information as outlined by the regulatory
  • Create and submit an annual report to RPRA that contains information as specified by the authority
  • Maintain records that can be accessed or examined in Ontario for five years from the date of creation
  • Submit audits of the practices and procedures as required by Producers to ensure Producer compliance

Working with eTracks

Starting January 1, 2019, eTracks will oversee recycling, administration and ensure compliance for tire Producers obligated under Ontario End-of-Life tire Regulations (RRCEA). We will work with Haulers and Processors who are enrolled with us to oversee the transportation of end-of-life tires to their facilities. Although Haulers will not be paid by eTracks directly, they will be required to submit their transactions in order to claim their payments from the Processors.

Once a Hauler is registered with RPRA and enrolled with eTracks, they need to:

  • Pick up used tires from an eTracks enrolled Collector
  • Deliver used tires to eTracks enrolled Processors
  • Provide detailed information to eTracks on final destinations and end-uses of recycled tires – using our mobile and online TreadMarks System
  • Payment to the Hauler will not be directly made from eTracks but they will still need to submit their transactions in order to receive payments from the Processor

Benefits of enrolling as a Hauler under the eTracks Program:

  1. Work with the largest PRO in the province of Ontario
  2. Business name posted on the eTracks website as an enrolled Hauler and under our ‘Locate a Hauler in your area’ search engine
  3. Access to the eTracks online TreadMarks System and mobile app which allows the tracking of all tire pick-ups and deliveries
  4. Hauler Transportation Incentive (paid to the Processor) on applicable tire movement
