Why should I recycle?
Not only do scrap tires waste limited landfill space, but they can also contaminate groundwater, and provide breeding grounds for mosquito-borne diseases like the West Nile Virus. Tire Stewarship BC (TSBC) is the not-for-profit society responsible for the collection, processing and environmentally sound management of all scrap tires designated under the B.C. Recycling Regulation.
