Alberta has amended the Tire Designation Regulation (AR 95/2004) to provide a schedule of maximum surcharges for different tire types pursuant to the Designated Material Recycling and Management Regulation. The maximum charge had been $4, while the new schedule provides maximum surcharges that range from $4 to $200. The surcharge on passenger and light truck tires remains at $4, while medium truck tires (>19.5 inches) have a maximum surcharge of $9, small OTR tires have a maximum surcharge of $40, medium OTR tires $100 and large OTR tires have a maximum surcharge of $200.
