CATRA conducts an annual data survey of the member organizations from each province and territory to arrive at a Nation-wide picture of new tires sold, used tires collected, and the end-use markets. The recycling rate is determined by dividing the tires recycled (tonnes) plus those sent to energy recovery (tonnes) by the tires collected (tonnes) during that year (all data updated annually). Off the Road (OTR) tire sales and collections data has been excluded since not all provinces currently manage this category of tires under their program.
