Dear Neil and Zeina,

The province of Nova Scotia in Canada has established a Used Tyre
Management programme. It's an industry stewardship agreement, and they have
applied an environmental fee of $3 for all new passenger tyres and $9 for
all new truck tyres to manage the system. Since implementation of the
strategy approximately 2.3 million tyres have been recycled, and a new tyre
recycling plant is currently under construction which will crumb tyres for
the manufacturing of various products.

For more info. you can contact:

 Tab A. Borden.
 Executive Manager,
 Trade & Investment,
 Nova Scotia Department of the Environment.
 Tel: 902 424 5205

Hope this helps.

Best Wishes,

Anne-Marie Cunningham
