Frequently Asked Questions

Tire dealers should accept tires from the public.  Sales numbers do not have to exactly match or exceed the number of tires picked up for recycling. Tire dealers selling a used or retread tire will not charge a fee on that tire, but should accept the old tire for recycling.
You do not charge a recycling fee. The consumer paid the recycling fee when the tires were purchased.
You do not charge a recycling fee as the consumer paid the fee at the time of purchase.
If you replace a tire under warranty for any portion of the cost (example: prorated) then you must collect a fee from the consumer and include it in your remittance to Recycle NB. If you replace a defective tire under warranty at no cost to the consumer, then the warrantor (retailer or manufacturer) must cover and remit the fee.
If tires or a vehicle are delivered to another province (from NB) or shipped out of the province of NB, then no fee is charged. Likewise, if a new vehicle is shipped and sold out of the province of NB or the bill of sale has an out-of-province address and taxes are paid upon the customer's return to that province, then no fee is charged for the tires on that vehicle. If a vehicle is ordered from out of the province to sell in NB, the fee applies.

‚ÄčAt this time, there is no fee on oversized and industrial tires that are over 24.5 inches rim size. Therefore, they are not included in the tires sent for recycling. If you are dealing in these tires, please continue to dispose of them as you have in the past.
No matter how the costs are distributed, if new tires are sold to a consumer, then you must collect and remit the appropriate tire-recycling fee for every tire sold.
The recycling fee is charged on tires sold as part of a new vehicle (sold or leased, including any temporary tires). The recycling fee is charged on tires on a used vehicle if new tires were put on the vehicle to sell it or if the vehicle was imported to New Brunswick.
Remittance forms and fees, made payable to Recycle New Brunswick, must be submitted within 30 days of the end of each month for the value of recycling fees collected each month, but the HST collected on the fee is sent to the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA).
