tire take back pic 1.8We interviewed David Gold at Standard Auto Wreckers about his recent Tire Take Back Event and it appears the event was a smashing (excuse the pun) amazing success!  David says, “Things got off to a great start with people lined up even before we opened at 8am on Friday.  Then on Saturday we had a steady flow of people dropping off as few as two tires and as many as a dozen at-a-time.  We would like to extend our heart-felt thanks to everyone that helped make this event such a great success!”

Standard Auto Wreckers in Toronto, Ontario in partnership with OARA (Ontario Automotive Recyclers Assosciation) will be participating in the collection of used tires in the greater Toronto area.  All tire fees associated with each tire dropped off will be donated by participating members to The Sunshine Foundation of Canada.  OARA will then match the donation made from all tires collected.

Keep an eye out for next years event!!
