Frequently Asked Questions


TSS is a non-profit corporation that was established in June 2017 to serve as the scrap tire management and recycling program operator in Saskatchewan. TSS operates with Saskatchewan Ministry of Environment oversight according to The Scrap Tire Management Regulations, 2017 and The Environmental Management and Protection Act, 2010, and works with all stakeholders and the public to ensure that scrap tires are recycled in an environmentally friendly and sound manner.

Retailers are responsible for ensuring that all consumer-paid Tire Recycling Fees (TRFs) are collected and reported through a monthly Retailer Remittance Form. TSS completes a yearly Retailer Compliance Review of randomly selected retailers’ records to ensure that:

  • 1. TRFs have been charged on all new tire sales;
  • 2. All TRFs have been reported monthly to the TSS; and
  • 3. All records from the Retailer and TSS are consistent.

Yes. As a tire retailer in Saskatchewan, you are responsible for charging the TRF on all new tires sales. The program is designed for the consumer to pay the fee; however, you are responsible for all fees on tires you sell.

All Retailer Remittance Forms must accompany payment if tires were sold within the month. If there are no sales one month, a Nil Retailer Remittance Form will need to be filed. You can submit your Retailer Remittance Form by:

  • a. Email: contactus@tssk.ca

    An email can be sent for a nil report without an actual form but must include your business name and TSS retailer registration number within the email

  • b. Fax: 306-789-7630
  • c. Mail: 3419 Pasqua Street, Regina, SK S4S 7K9

The Government of Saskatchewan approved product stewardship program requires that tire retailers collect and submita Retailer Remittance Form monthly (even if you have no sales in a given month). Monthly remittances signal to TSS that you are an active retailer and makes you eligible for collection.

Yes. If you have no sales within a given month and want to remain an active retailer with TSS, you will file a Nil Retailer Remittance Form (all zeroes) or simply email the TSS Office at contactus@tssk.ca with your business name, TSS registration number and confirmation that you had no sales in the particular month. If a retailer does not submit a monthly Retailer Remittance Form, they are considered noncompliant.

Tires are only collected from retailers that are up to date with submitting monthly Retail Remittance Forms and fees. If your tires were not picked up, you may be behind on submitting fees or reporting.

f you are not up to date with submitting your monthly remittances, please submit a Retailer Remittance Form at your earliest convenience to TSS and follow the steps listed in Q4 above.

If you are up to date with submitting your monthly remittances, please follow-up with TSS by emailing the TSS Office at contactus@tssk.ca with your business name and TSS registration number.

You can find the Remittance Form, program information and other retailer forms under the Retailer Information tab on our website: http://www.tssk.ca/retailer

Collectors are assigned to geographic collection zones in which retailers are located. When you require tire collection, please contact your zone collector directly or the TSS office to arrange a collection. Collector information is located under the Collector Information tab on our website: http://www.tssk.ca/collector

*Please note: Your company will not receive a tire collection if you did not report the TRF through a monthly Retailer Remittance Form or if your account is not up to date.

It is recommended that all TRFs be posted to a separate General Ledger (GL) account as it allows for easy tracking. All fees are to be reported monthly using the Retailer Remittance Form. TRFs are due within the month following a sale. All TRFs for the reporting period must be submitted to the TSS prior to the last business day of the following month (i.e., January sales are due no later than February 28, etc.). Interest of 18% per annum is applicable on all late and/or outstanding TRFs. The Retailer Remittance Form must accompany payment to be processed with TSS. The TSS accepts the following payment options for remitting TRFs:

  • a. Online: You can set up TSS as a bill payee at most credit unions and major banks. Please select “Tire Stewardship of Sask” as your payee, and the account number is your TSS retailer registration number. Once payment is submitted, please ensure to fax or email your Retailer Remittance Form to 306-789-7630 or contactus@tssk.ca (please include your business name and TSS retailer registration number within the email)

Do you have friends and family that want to properly dispose of their old scrap tires? The Return to Retailer (R2R) Program provides Saskatchewan residents an opportunity and the ability to give back to their communities by easily and safely placing their scrap tires into the recycle stream. The R2R Program allows Saskatchewan residents to drop off a maximum of ten (10) rimless scrap tires per visit, free of charge, at select tire retailers during business hours - even if the tires were not originally purchased at that location.

The R2R Program is free of charge for retailers to be a part of! By being a part of the R2R Program, you’re encouraging environmentally friendly disposal of scrap tires and enabling larger manufacturers to properly recycle and reproduce low-impact playground surfaces, athletic field turf, paving material, patio blocks, shingles, truck bed liners, vehicle ramps, and more.

If you are interested in participating in the R2R Program or would like more information, please contact the TSS Office at contactus@tssk.ca or 1-833-790-1894.
