Advance Disposal Fees

For every new tire sold, the retailer remits to TSBC an Advance Disposal Fee (ADF), commonly referred to as an eco-fee. All fees collected go exclusively towards the operation of the scrap tire recycling program and are used primarily to pay for transporting and recycling BC's scrap tires, so that they are disposed of in environmentally responsible ways.

The ADFs (Advance Disposal Fees) vary by tire type in order to adequately compensate for the higher cost of collecting and disposing of the varying tire sizes.

The current fee structure is:

Passenger & Light Truck Tire


Medium Truck Tire


Agricultural Drive Tire


Logger/Skidder Tire

Other tire types, such as large off-the-road tires, are excluded from the BC Recycling Regulation because there is currently no viable recycling solution for these tires.

Now entering British Columbia Effective May 1, 2010, the Tire Stewardship BC ADFs will also apply to tires on vehicles imported from the US. The applicable fees will be as per the fee structure above. These fees will be collected from the importer by the inspection station on behalf of TSBC at the time the vehicle is inspected. All approved inspection stations are identified by the Registrar of Imported Vehicles on their web site.

Any questions regarding these fees should be directed to TSBC
