Canadian authorities have eased the procedure for tire fee changes proposals in the province of Alberta. The new system will allow the tire recycling industry to operate more effectively on unstable market.

Earlier, these changes had to be approved by the cabinet, thus it was a lengthy and complicated process.

The move was made after the officials reacted to recycling operators who noted that fees had to support operating costs. The eased procedure now gives right to the Alberta Recycling Management Authority (ARMA) to introduce proposed fee changes via administrative process, thus red tape for the commercial sector will be reduced. Moreover, an earlier recycling fee cap will be removed – this will help ARMA to be flexible, therefore the state recycling projects will be able to get adequate support.

The new system required ARMA to inform the minister of Environment and Parks about proposed fee changes.
