What happens to my tires?
Not only are discarded tires ugly to look at, they also pose a number of health risks. They present a fire hazard that can produce toxic fumes. When left out in the open, they collect water and become a breeding ground for mosquitos including those carrying West Nile Virus. The good news is, while tires are nasty when they're discarded, they're a valuable source of material that can be turned into new products and new jobs.

Municipal Grant Program
The Municipal Grant Program is greatly valued by ARMA as it directly benefits Albertans and has done so since it was introduced in 2000. Regretfully, the Grant Program is cancelled for 2021/22 due to insufficient funds as a result of reduced tire sales which have been impacted by COVID-19. ARMA looks forward to re-evaluating the program next year which to date has provided $14.5 million in funding for the completion nearly 800 projects throughout Alberta.
Products Made From Tires
Tires can be recycled and used for many things such as sidewalks, walkways, replacement for sand in playgrounds, landscaping, rooftop & patio Surfacing, and much more. Visit the link below for a list of recycled tire manufacturers in Alberta and their products.
