Tire Stewardship Program reduces waste and generates long-term environmental and economic benefits in the province.
New Brunswick’s tire recycling program is celebrating 20 years of operation. The program, which began in 1996, has diverted the equivalent of 20 million passenger tires from the province’s landfills.
Minister of Environment and Local Government Serge Rousselle presented certificates of appreciation to some of the program partners at an event in Fredericton on Wednesday.
“Twenty years ago, the New Brunswick Tire Stewardship Program was seen as an important step forward in creating greener solutions to protect the environment and creating jobs for our province,” said Rousselle. “Today we are showing our appreciation towards key partners that have done a great deal of work and effort to bring this program to fruition and making New Brunswick a national and international leader in value-added recycling products.”
