Ontario Tire Stewardship announces 100 million tires recycled

Ontario Tire Stewardship's (OTS) Used Tires Program has reached an incredible milestone: the recycling its 100 millionth tire since the program opened in 2009. To put this astounding accomplishment into perspective, 100 million tires stacked on top of one another is the equivalent height of over 36,000 CN Towers.
