Tire recycling is good for our environment and benefits our communities and economy.
ARMA’s Municipal Demonstration Grant Program and the Tire Area Marshalling Grant Program provides funding to Alberta municipalities and non-profit organizations to help purchase recycled tire products for community projects or to upgrade scrap tire collection areas at waste management facilities, landfills and transfer stations.
January 2021: Update on the 2021 Municipal Demonstration Grant and the Tire Marshalling Area Grant Program
Over the last 12+ months, the economic impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic have touched every economic corner of the globe.
With health restrictions moving much of the workforce to work-from-home, as well as limiting travelling, the tire industry has seen a significant reduction in tire sales. This directly impacts ARMA’s ability to activate its tire grant programs in 2021 and unfortunately, the necessary decision to temporarily pause this program was made, due to budgetary constraints.
We continue to be in close communications with our tire suppliers and will keep our tire grant stakeholders updated.
