The attached document endorsed by Town Council on June 6, 2011 will provide insight on how the Town’s new Waste Management Program got started.

Under the recently launched “Ontario Tire Stewardship Program”, Aylmer residents are allowed to dispose of up to four (4) tires per week per household.

Aylmer Tire located at 49703 Talbot Line (572 Talbot Street East) is a Registered Collector under the program and will accept tires free of charge.

Tires will be accepted at Aylmer Tire during normal business hours:
Monday to Friday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm
Saturday from 8:00 am to 12:00 Noon

Any residents wishing to drop off more than the listed limit of tires must contact Aylmer Tire at 519-773-3141 to make arrangements.

This program is a joint effort involving the Province of Ontario, Ontario Tire Stewardship, Aylmer Tire and the Town of Aylmer.

Partnering with Orangedrop to assist with the proper disposal of household products that require special handling, such as hazardous waste, pressurized cylinders, and single-use batteries.
