Rubber from 14,928 Scrap Tires Used in 13 BC Community Projects

Tire Stewardship BC (“TSBC”), a not-for-profit group dedicated to the collection and recycling of scrap tires in British Columbia, has finalized the 13 B.C. organizations that will receive TSBC grants for community developments. In total, 14,928 BC scrap tires will be used for these community projects. Projects include the surfacing of playgrounds, walkways, parks, and gathering spaces.

The TSBC community grant program supports municipalities; registered non-profit community groups; or organizations, schools, and First Nations and Métis settlements that are building or upgrading their facilities utilizing recycled tire products. To date, the TSBC has awarded over $5.8 million dollars in community grants.

“Tire Stewardship BC is pleased to provide financial support to organizations across the province that have chosen to use recycled tire rubber for their upcoming projects. These grant recipients will use B.C. rubber for the surfacing of various communal areas making them durable, non-toxic, and low maintenance,” says Rosemary Sutton, executive director at Tire Stewardship BC. “Rubber surfacing made from B.C. scrap tires is also non-slip, making it safer for everyone, and it creates a soft landing in playground areas. Additionally, rubber surfacing is cost-effective and visually attractive.”
