Tires (automotive)
Most passenger car and truck tires are managed through the province-wide Tire Stewardship BC product stewardship program. Various automotive tires are included in the program with an eco fee included in the purchase price to cover the cost of transporting and recycling. A full list of what is accepted and free depot locations is available on their website.

How do I go green?

Don’t leave old tires in a pile in the backyard. There are toxins that can leach out into damp soil below which will pollute groundwater.

You may have a project at home that could use one of those old tires, such as a swing for the kids, bumpers for the dock or a soft landing point for your car’s front bumper in a tiny garage.

Hartland Depot will accept your old tires in small residential quantities. If the tires are on the rim, there is a fee. If the tires are off of the rim, there is no fee. 
Not all facilities listed below are part of the provincial program and may charge a fee for drop off. Contact facilities directly regarding restrictions and charges.
