How do I go green?

Purchase the most durable bike tires you can afford and try to resist switching until you actually need new tires.

There are many videos on the internet with instructions for bike tire reuse. Bike tubes make great hinges for compost box lids and the tires can be made into sandals.

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.
