Tire Stewardship B.C. has a Return to Retailer program, which is a program where retailers across the province have volunteered to take back up to 4 car tires, clean and off rim and during business hours from the public for free. This includes automotive tires but not scooter tires.
Tires can then be recycled into many different products, including landscaping material, footwear and road resurfacing material. For a list of facilities that recycle tires, visit Tire Stewardship B.C.
Hartland Recycling Area will accept your old tires and metal rims in small residential quantities. If the tires are on the rim there is a $6 recycling area entry fee. If the tires are off of the rim there is no fee.
