WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE TIRE NEUTRAL?
Shercom’s TIRE NEUTRAL program is designed to encourage all individuals, companies and municipalities to use more tires than they consume! Each one of us use (wear out) 1 tire per year. Shercom turns that into 14 pounds of recycled reusable rubber. When consumers purchase one recycled rubber product they are Tire Neutral for that year. However, urban municipalities and companies have the opportunity to make a larger impact in a Tire Neutral Saskatchewan. By using TDA or rubber parking curbs your municipality has the potential of using thousands of pounds or recycled rubber and ensuring their community is Tire Neutral for years and decades to come.
CELEBRATING TIRE NEUTRAL COMMUNITIES
Shercom is promoting Saskatchewan municipalities who are committed to becoming tire neutral. Whether they install a new playground, use TDA for road improvements, build a community garden with our exclusive line of recycled rubber landscape products, Shercom is supporting the efforts every step of the way!
