As of July 1st, the environmental deposit charged on the purchase of each new tire will increase from $3.00 to $4.50.

The Quebec Minister of Finance, Eric Girard, made the announcement during the presentation of his budget.

The government announcement, which is expected to raise $64.6 million over the next five years, also affects commercial tires, for which the environmental fee will be set at six dollars.

Since its inception in 1999, the scrap tire recovery program has enabled the recovery of some 95% of end-of-life tires in Quebec on a self-financing basis.

According to the government’s statement, without this increase in new tire fees, the program would be at risk of running a deficit next year.

The adjustment is explained by the increase in the cost of collecting and recovering end-of-life tires.

These fees have not been adjusted since the launch of the program.

C’est l’organisme paragouvernemental Recyc-Québec qui est responsable de la gestion de ce programme.

The government also states that a funding review will be conducted every five years.

Every new tire dealer and car dealership that delivers a car with new tires must collect this fee from their customers.
