Special Municipal Landfill Clean-up

Municipal landfills receive a 50-cent per tire incentive to manage scrap tires appropriately. There remain some logistical challenges to ensuring consistent enforcement of scrap tire management requirements.

Having assumed responsibility for neglected scrap tires that may have accumulated at landfills under the previous government-run program, TSM supported Reliable Tire Recycling and the LGD of Mystery Lake to conclude the removal and processing of over 22,000 scrap tires or 385 tonnes of material from the Thompson landfill. TSM, scrap tire processors and local governments continue to work together to ensure tires are stored appropriately and collection is provided as warranted to avoid unnecessary accumulation in remote and historically under-serviced areas.
