eTracks will assist the tire producers, manufacturers and importers to meet their legislative obligations under the Ontario Resource Recovery and Circular Economy Act (RRCEA), including:
- Registering and reporting company performance against the regulations and supporting company data as required.
- Tracking and reporting tire recovery, processing and chain of custody,
- Procuring supply chain services from ELT (End of Life Tires) service providers (collectors, haulers, recyclers, etc.) via fair and open competitive processes,
- Delivering on any other producer obligations that may be established by under the RRCEA (such as promotion and consumer education).
We are committed to providing seamless, efficient, and responsible service.
We will achieve this by:
- Building strong relationships with tire producers, distributors, retailers, and suppliers of ELT (End of Life Tires) services
- Establishing best-in-class corporate governance, oversight and management processes
Our priority is to ensure that your legislative obligations
are fulfilled, conveniently and responsibly.
As a not-for-profit organization, eTracks is not motivated by gain and will operate so as to break even over time. Participants will reimburse eTracks for ELT (End of Life Tires) costs based on their supply into the market.
eTracks costs will be determined after the government provides further details on the targets and standards it will set for obligated companies, suppliers and others, and eTracks has determined the cost of collecting and recycling the required quantity of tires.
