MWA Spring Workshop May 2013
  • Program Accomplishments
  • Collected 145,550 tonnes of used tires in 2012
  • Of the tires delivered by Haulers to OTS
    Registered Processors in 2012, approximately 97
    were delivered to Processors located in Ontario
    a significantly higher percentage than in 2011
  • Ontario Recycled Product Manufacturers increased
    their consumption of Ontario-produced crumb
    rubber by 39 - 2012 over 2011

MWA Spring Workshop May 2013
  • Program Accomplishments
  • 50,000,000 tires collected as of February 2013
    since the program launch.
  • Cleaned up more than 500,000 tires in piles
    across Ontario
  • Final stockpiles will be cleaned up in 2013.

MWA Spring Workshop May 2013
  • Innovating Waste into Resources
  • Recent RD Projects include
  • Tire Wire Cleaning
  • Rubber and Plastic Compounding in Plastic Product
    Moulding
  • Recycled and Virgin Rubber Compounding
  • Gracious Living has enjoyed a positive RD
    collaboration with OTS. This RD work has allowed
    our company to begin including significant
    percentages of post-consumer rubber into several
    of our product categories. - Amit Golan,

MWA Spring Workshop May 2013
  • Tire Stewardship Fees
  • On January 25th, 2013 the Government of Ontario
    approved amended Regulation 84/03. The amendments
    to the Regulation spell out how the cost recovery
    process for the Used Tires program is to work
  • Annual TSF setting based on prior year actual
    costs and actual supply of new tires
  • Annual end-of-year reconciliation of actual
    revenues vs. expenses 
  • Surplus must be credited back to Stewards over a
    period of up to 2 years
  • Deficits are to be billed out to Stewards and
    payable within 60 days
  • Regulation is silent on how OTS handles historic
    debt/surplus
  • OTS has announced at 10 year plan to "pay-back"
    the accumulated 27 million debt on the OTR tire
    program
  • Annual "pay-back" will be used to offset costs
    allocated to PLT tires

MWA Spring Workshop May 2013
  • Tire Stewardship Fees
  • Effective April 1, 2013
  • Fees changed to reflect weight-based
    classification versus one that relied on tire
    used and/or rim diameter
  • P/LT fees were reduced from 5.84 per tire to
    5.69
  • Off-Road Tire Fees increased varying amounts
  • On April 18, Agricultural tire fees were adjusted
    retroactive to April 1 after consultations with
    the Ontario Federation of Agriculture
  • agricultural tires gt 70 250 kilograms 47.04
    per tire.
  • agricultural tires gt250 kilograms 182.28 per
    tire.

MWA Spring Workshop May 2013
  • Tire Stewardship Fees
  • Restrictions placed on the Used Tires Program
    that affect recycling fees
  • Waste Diversion Act (2002) does not permit OTS to
    send tires for use in Energy from Waste (EfW)
  • Waste Diversion Act and amended Regulation 84/03
    require OTS to implement fees that reflect the
    true costs of recycling used tires and do not
    allow OTS to adjust the fees based on
    considerations such as the end-consumers ability
    to pay
  • OTS may not use revenues from fees charged on
    PL/T tires to subsidize the costs of recycling
    Off-Road tires
  • Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) has indicated that it
    believes that OTS is not entitled to claim input
    tax credits, though OTS does pay HST on a range
    of program costs. The impact of this is to
    increase OTS costs by approximately 5 million
    per year.

MWA Spring Workshop May 2013
  • Evolving our Approach
  • OTS continues to evolve its Program with the
    introduction of new resources to educate and
    empower architects, builders and the next
    generation of industry minds to find innovative
    uses for recycled tire products. Connecting with
    key community decision makers to encourage
    collaborative dialogue is also an integral part
    of OTSs ongoing market education efforts.

MWA Spring Workshop May 2013
  • Transforming Industry Perceptions
  • Accredited Continuing Education Program for
    architects and specifiers.
  • Presentations will be made to over 150 leading
    Ontario influencers in green design including
    those involved in Pan Am venues, large scale
    healthcare and infrastructure projects,
    introducing them to applications for tire-derived
    products.
  • New e-toolkits for professionals on
    RethinkTires.ca
  • 4 new case studies in the works
  • Attending 6 tradeshows with the goal of
    delivering over 500 product leads for Registered
    Product Manufacturers

MWA Spring Workshop May 2013
  • Empowering Communities
  • Empowering communities to create more livable
    environments is at the core of the OTS Community
    Grant Program.
  • This program has evolved since 2011 with
    increased funding for community projects that use
    high-value manufactured products made from
    recycled tires.
  • 20 applications were received in 2012, which will
    lead to upgraded playgrounds, walkways, museums
    and public spaces across Ontario.

MWA Spring Workshop May 2013
  • Inspiring Consumers
  • Play an active role in driving consumer interest
    and excitement around TDPs.
  • Support OTS mandate to expand the TDP
    marketplace.
  • Deliver 11,000 interactions at 4 consumer shows
  • I saw the recycled tire patio stones and re-did
    my whole backyard! Green Living Show attendee

MWA Spring Workshop May 2013
  • Driving Trial of Recycled Tire Products
  • Supported by targeted advertising campaign
    including out of home, radio and print

16
MWA Spring Workshop May 2013
  • Moving Forward
  • In a recent survey, 47 of Ontarians said they
    would consider products made from recycled tires
    if the product displayed a Made from Ontario
    Recycled Tires marking on its label or
    packaging.
  • Working together we can overcome any challenges
    and continue to deliver a program that is already
    paying environmental, economic and social
    dividends to Ontarians.
  • In 2013, OTS will continue to work with the tire
    recycling industry to achieve even greater
    efficiencies and foster innovation.
