Considerations when Shopping for Passenger & Light Truck Tires

If you’re in the market for a new set of tires and find the shopping process to be a little daunting, you’re far from alone. There are many tire factors out there to consider throughout the process of making your choice.

Naturally basics like brand name, tire size, and the vehicle for which you’re buying are givens. However, you’ll also want to give some consideration to the type of tire you’ll need. For instance, if you drive a vehicle like an SUV or a pickup truck, your needs are going to be different than those of someone who drives a standard vehicle.

Yukon Territory – Tire Program Changes Announced

The Government of Yukon announced that it will postpone the implementation of its amended recycling regulation, discussed below.  For further information, see Yukon‘s official announcement of July 12, 2016:  http://www.gov.yk.ca/news/16-257.html#.V4_ozLiAOkq

This is after the Government of Yukon has announced the upcoming modernization of its recycling system. The changes include amendments to its Designated Materials Regulation (see Order No. O.I.C. 2016/88) which covers tires and other goods, and reflect significant progress in the system’s structure.

 

Taking effect on October 11, 2016, the adjustments will result in the increased diversion of tires from Yukon landfills and better cover the costs of tire handling, transporting and recycling.

The existing Designated Materials Regulation applies a surcharge only to tires with a 24.5-inch rim size or smaller, which are currently assigned a flat rate of $5 per tire. The October amendment will add larger tire categories, and surcharges will be implemented to more closely align with the cost of the tire’s end-of-life management:

 

Tire Rim Size                            Surcharge

17 inches and smaller                       $7

18 to 22 inches                                  $15

Greater than 22 inches                   $50

 

Used tires can be dropped off at depots/waste facilities permitted by the Ministry of Community Services and consumers will no longer have to pay a “tipping fee” to do so.

As part of the changes, all manufacturers, distributors and retailers of tires sold in Yukon must register with the Yukon government and maintain information on the tires they supply and the related surcharges.

BMW i3 Batteries to Be Recycled for Home Use

One of the great fears surrounding widespread adoption of electric cars is that Mother Earth (or her landfills) will never be able to digest all the zapped batteries once the cars are removed from service. BMW anticipated that concern well before its i-cars were introduced and has been collaborating with universities, national labs, and utilities since 2009 to develop a remedy.
