Tire Stewardship Manitoba (TSM) is a not-for-profit organization formed to manage the scrap tire recycling program on behalf of tire retailers in Manitoba. TSM has had its tire stewardship program approved by Manitoba Conservation in accordance with The Tire Stewardship Regulation, 2006.
TSM is accountable to its stakeholders and the public for the collection, processing and environmentally sound disposal of all scrap tires designated under the regulation. TSM collects an steward-fee on the sale of new tires from the retailer. These fees are used to pay for transporting and recycling Manitoba’s scrap tires, so that these tires are disposed of in an environmentally responsible manner. All of the steward-fees collected are used in the operation and enhancement of the tire recycling program for Manitoba.
