Processors

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

Processors must fulfill the following conditions under the tire regulation 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 work with Haulers and Processors to oversee the transportation of end-of-life tires to their facilities.

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

Benefits of enrolling as a Hauler under the eTracks Program:

  2. Business name posted on the eTracks website an enrolled Processor
  3. Access to the eTracks online TreadMarks System and mobile app which allows the tracking of all tire deliveries
