Guelph – Ontario farmers can turn old tires into something useful with the Tire Take Back event in June. Tire collection fees from donated tires will be contributed to the Sunshine Foundation of Canada – an organization that supports children challenged by physical disabilities or life-threatening illnesses.
From June 1-6, farmers can drop off used tires for free at more than 60 participating Ontario Automotive Recyclers Association (OARA) locations. Visit www.ofa.on.ca for a list of participating locations. Collection fees normally charged will be donated in full to the Sunshine Foundation of Canada.
The Ontario Federation of Agriculture (OFA) supports the Tire Take Back initiative and encourages members to participate. OFA members can support this program by collecting used tires and dropping them off at their closest participating OARA location. The Tire Take Back program is supported by Ontario Tire Stewardship.
