Ontario Tire Recycling OEM Obligations

The 2009 Ontario Tire Stewardship program, (OTS) has been disbanded and replaced by the November 2016 Resource Recovery and Circular Economy Act (RRCEA). This law will be in effect January 1st, 2019 and will require producers to be individually responsible to ensure the process continues for the recovery of 75% by weight of the tires they introduce into the Ontario market and that 75% of those tires recovered, by weight, are recycled. This recovery responsibility may be contracted to a third party, of which two have been identified for evaluation by AEM members. Several webinars and a FAQ paper have been developed to assist AEM members analyze their best approach to comply with this law. These requirements will extend to other waste streams such as:

  • Electronics and Electrical Equipment  - Beginning July 2020
  • Hazardous and Special Wastes 
  • Lights 
  • Used Oils and Filters 
  • Printed Paper & Packaging
