Burlington, Ontario-based YES Environmental Services & Solutions (YESS) is setting out to change the face of recycling in Canada. YESS is run by three experts in the waste management and product stewardship industry, who just happen to be women thriving in a predominately male-dominated business environment.

Resulting from new legislation, Ontario Tire Stewardship (OTS) is scheduled to wrap up operations by the end of 2018. Until then, the organization will continue to maintain a successful recycling infrastructure and manage used tires in the province to ensure they are properly recycled.
Earlier this year, it was announced that Ontario Tire Stewardship's Used Tires Program had reached a significant milestone: the recycling of its 100 millionth tire since the program began in 2009. Alberta is the only other Canadian province to achieve this milestone.
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. Before the implementation of the program many of these tires ended up in landfills across the province or accumulated into tire piles, which pose serious environmental and safety risks. Through the Used Tires Program 100 per cent of scrap tires generated in Ontario are recycled into high value, sustainable products - and importantly, no tires are burned, disposed of in landfills or are illegally dumped.

Tyromer Inc was established by the University of Waterloo, and with the help of Ontario Tire Stewardship and other public/private collaborations, has commercialized an innovative new process to enhance the up-cycling of recycled tire rubber.
