Waste Diversion Ontario has released its proposed diversion program for used tires. Public comments will be accepted until March 29. The plan targets a tire diversion rate of 90% for passenger tires and 50% for off-road tires

by 2015,  and promises to clean up existing stockpiles of tires in three years. Abandoned tires are major fire, air pollution and water pollution threats.  Like most diversion programs, the program will be paid for by levies on tires made in or imported into Ontario. WDO predicts that these levies will bring in $73.9 million in the first year. The money will be used to pay for collection, reuse and recycling of used tires.
