It can be such a pain to replace a car tire and to make matters worse, there’s the cost and disposal fee attached.
But until June 4, you can not only escape the disposal fee for the tires you have kicking around, they can mean money for The Sunshine Foundation of Canada, a charity that makes dreams come true for severely disabled children.
The Sunshine Foundation has teamed up with the Ontario Tire Stewardship, Ontario Automotive recyclers and Ontario Federation of Agriculture to put the plan into action. Locally the member that is leading the collection charge is Early’s Auto at 7700 Highway 89 W. in Alliston.
Early’s has been more than a community partner in the program relates owner Earl Graham, it has led the way collecting 19,242 tires and over $30,000 since the program started, good for top spot in Ontario. It’s a good
feeling he says. It’s about giving them the dream of a lifetime. That’s what it’s all about, noting that the foundation ensures the kids travel to their dream destination with their doctors and care providers.
Any tire from a passenger car, light truck or agricultural vehicle truck, count in the tally. The bigger the tire, the more money it generates for the drive.
Just drop off any tires during business hours at Early’s. For more information, you can visit http://www.sunshine.ca/news/8th-annual-oara-tire-take-back or call Early’s at 705-435-7708.
