TORONTO—The Canadian Association of Tire Recycling Agencies has launched a new website to provide up-to-date information about Canada's tire recycling industry.
By creating the new website, CATRA can provide members and the public with recycling data and national, provincial and territorial recycling information at a single online location, rather than making users search multiple jurisdictions, the association said in a news release.
Among the information available on the website is:
• Listings of national and regional data on collected and recycled tires;
• Energy recovery and diversion rates;
• Access to federal government and industry resources; and
• A forum for CATRA members to access share and store best practices, allowing them to stay updated on tire recycling trends and issues.
“Our goal was to develop a resource to make it easier to find accurate and timely information about the tire recycling industry in Canada—and we've succeeded,” said CATRA Program Manager Bob Ferguson.
According to the website, CATRA is an informal organization supported by its members—the tire stewardship and management organizations in all 10 Canadian provinces.
