eTracks Implements New Hauler Contracting Model
Throughout July 2021, Evolve Recycling Inc transitioned out of the hauling management business. Evolve will continue to operate its “Trillium” hauling business, and has partnered with eTracks to manage the delivery of used tires by other haulers to their facilities in Brantford and Moose Creek going forward. Our goal throughout this process was to ensure the uninterrupted flow of tires and payments to haulers.
Haulers who had contracts or agreements to haul tires for Evolve were provided with a new contract from eTracks. A joint letter from Evolve Recycling and eTracks was also provided by email on July 9, 2021 to all Evolve haulers.
eTracks held 4 webinars for the hauling community on May 19, May 26, June 2 and June 9 outlining this transition and the contents of the new contracts. We were pleased to note that more than 30 haulers attended these webinars. Haulers can access a copy of the webinar at:
eTracks looks forward to expanding the use of direct-to-hauler contracting with it...

eTracks in the News – Recycling Product News Article
A 2020 survey conducted by eTracks Tire Management Systems — a company that works on behalf of tire producers to meet their regulatory obligations of recycling tires — is looking to dispel the myths and misinformation about the tire recycling industry, and with good cause: the survey revealed that only one third (37 percent) of Ontarians know that, in Ontario, tires are recycled.
Nearly half (49 percent) of Ontarians do not know whether they’re recycled or thrown into landfills, and 14 percent of residents – a whopping 1.5 million adults in Ontario – do not believe tires are recycled at all. In reality, tire manufacturers and automakers are responsible for recycling every tire they sell in Ontario, yet only 32 percent know this is the case.
“Regardless of some of these knowledge gaps and myths, it’s encouraging to know Ontarians want to help the environment,” said Steve Meldrum, CEO of eTracks Tire Management Systems. “And while the survey shows that knowledge of the tire recycling ...
