Marathon’s surfacings are eligible for Tire Stewardship Grants across Western Canada as well as other Community Grant Programs.

Tire Stewardship BC is a not-for-profit society formed to manage BC’s tire recycling program. The program collects an Advance Disposal Fee, commonly referred to as an eco fee, on the sale of every new tire. The fees are used to pay for transporting and recycling BC generated scrap tires ensuring that the tires are disposed of in environmentally responsible ways instead of ending up in our landfills.

2019 Community Grant Program is closed for 2019 and funds have been awarded. The Grant will reopen in January 2020.
