Used tire round up this weekend

Cloverdale residents looking for a place to drop off old car tires for recycling have an opportunity this Saturday.

The Kal Tire outlet at 5621 180 Street is one of three nearby Kal Tire locations hosting a Tire Round Up on April 6, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Drop off your old car tires, on or off rim. It’s free.

The other participating Kal Tires are located at 20620 Langley Bypass in Langley and at 16139 Fraser Highway in Surrey.

The event is presented through the Tire Stewardship of B.C. along with Kal Tire.

Most of the 37,000 tonnes of scrap tires collected each year are recycled into products, and the rest is used as a fuel supplement.

Scrap rubber is recycled into products ranging from playground surfaces, athletic tracks and garden stones to flooring and landscaping mulch.
