For five years, Ontario Tire Stewardship and CAA teamed up to make it easy for community members to take part in the CAA RecycleDrive campaign. During this time, the campaign has collected and responsibly recycled over 13,000 batteries, 10,500 litres of oil and 11,500 tires.
As part of the campaign, the CAA Approved Auto Repair Service (AARS) location that collected the most tires each year awarded a $20,000 revitalization package (including greenery and recycled rubber products) to a local school of their choice.
See how local schools and communities came together over the years to build something great for students:
