Residents of Sayward Village Invited to Get Rid of Scrap Tires During Sayward Clean-Up Day
TSBC is pleased to announce that in partnership with Comox Valley Regional District, we will be collecting residential scrap tires this weekend, April 15 &16, from 9am-4pm, at Comox Strathcona Waste Management (Main Road Yard, 797 Island Highway, Sayward, BC).
“We are pleased to partner with Comox Valley Regional District and fellow stewardship organizations to offer this opportunity for the residents of the Sayward area to clean out their garages, yards and storage of old tires and drop them off locally during Sayward Clean-Up Days,” shares Rosemary Sutton, Executive Director, Tire Stewardship BC. “The scrap tires that are collected will be recycled into many different environmentally friendly products including playground surfacing, recreational flooring, water parks, animal mats, garden mulch and truck bed liners, versus wasting away in the environment.”
Since 1991, over 100 million tires have been recycled in BC. TSBC’s scrap tire recycling program is one of the most successful in North America and the oldest recycling program in Canada. Every year in BC over five million scrap car tires are recycled into new products.
“TSBC is always looking for opportunities throughout the province to host free scrap tire collection events, and to partner with businesses, organization and local governments that focus on recycling and environmental sustainability,” continues Sutton. “Giving old, used BC tires new life through reprocessing them within the province makes both environment and business sense.”
