Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic Response: April 23 Update

It has been just over a month since Divert NS' head office in Truro began operating remotely. For the most part, we continue to operate business as usual. Tire and beverage retailers are continuing to report and remit the deposits and fees they collect on our behalf; and we are continuing to collect used tires from businesses that remain open and service the Enviro-Depots that are still accepting beverage containers for refund from Nova Scotians.

It is not our intention to further burden retailers, distributors or Enviro-Depots during this time. Should the retailers or distributors that remain open encounter difficulties reporting or remitting payments to us, we encourage them to contact us directly to discuss arrangements on a case-by-case basis. Likewise, we understand the impact that the pandemic could have on the finances of Enviro-DepotTM partners, and we are offering assistance to them.

We are committed to working with our beverage container and used tire stewardship partners through the COVID-19 situation. As always, if anyone has questions or requires assistance from Divert NS, we invite you to reach out to us at 902-895-7732 or 1-877-313-7732 toll-free, or email us at

We greatly appreciate everyone’s continued cooperation and understanding during these difficult times.

Stay safe. Stay healthy.
