Tire Recycling Program

Did you know …

Consumers pay a recycling fee on each new tire that is bought. These fees are submitted to Recycle NB by the retailer to help fund the tire recycling program. This is a self-supportive program that receives no funding from the government.

For the past 16 years, New Brunswick has implemented a waste management program for tires. This program helps to keep millions of tires from the landfill by turning them into recycled products. Over 16 million tires to date have been kept out of landfills across the province. Of those tires, 98% were able to be turned into new rubber products.


Just how much does the customer pay in tire recycling fees for each tire bought?

• Motorcycle and Moped Tire $3.00
• Passenger and Light Truck Tire $4.50
• Medium Truck Tire $13.50


Recycling Locations

Anyone selling tires in New Brunswick must register with the Tire Stewardship Program. Tires can be dropped off at over 900 registered tire retailers across the province free of charge as a fee was paid at the time of purchase.

Due to limited storage, there is a drop-off limit of five tires per visit.
