A business which receives, and processes used tires in Ontario for the purposes of resource recovery or disposal is classified as a Processor.

Evolving new framework

As outlined in the Tires Regulation Processors 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

We will work with Haulers and Processors who are enrolled with us to oversee the transportation of end-of-life tires to their facilities. All payments will be made by eTracks directly to the Processors. Processors & Haulers will need to work out a business relationship to determine how deliveries to the Processing facility will work and how payment will be made to the Haulers.

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

  • Accept tires from all eTracks enrolled Haulers free of charge, based on the types of tires the Processor is able to accept
  • Provide proof of end-use for Tire-Derived Products (TDPs) sold and demonstrate that the materials being used are with the program mandate.
  • Submit and report delivery of tires to eTracks within a 30-day window for the previous month
