Tire Take Back

tire_take_backOntario Automotive Recyclers Association (OARA) and Ontario Tire Stewardship (OTS) hold an annual Tire Take Back event to raise money for the Sunshine Foundation of Canada. For 6 days in May, Ontario residents can drop off unlimited used tires for free at 60 participating OARA Member locations during business hours across the province.

OARA Members process end-of-life vehicles (ELVs) in an environmentally responsible manner, ensuring the environment is protected from potentially harmful operating fluids and toxins such as mercury and lead. All tire collection allowances from each tire dropped off go towards the Sunshine Foundation of Canada, an organization that helps dreams come true for children who are challenged by severe physical disabilities or life-threatening illnesses.

Since 2010, the collection events helped to raise over $700,000 dollars to support this cause.
