Developing solutions for end of life
tyres is our number one priority.

Tyre Stewardship Australia is hard at work to create productive outcomes for end of life tyres (EOLT).
Increasing the use of locally tyre derived products across segments like rail, roads and civil engineering is top of mind.

323,000

Tonnes (the equivalent of 40.3 million car tyres or 69%) went to productive outcomes, according to the 2018-19 Australian tyre consumption and recovery report* commissioned by TSA.

Of the 323,000 tonnes:

  • 85,000 tonnes (the equivalent of 10.6 million used car tyres) for reuse
  • 190,000 tonnes (the equivalent of 23.8 million) for processing into tyre derived products
  • 48,000 tonnes (the equivalent of 5.9 million) for use whole in thermal processing

89%

Passenger & motorbike tyre recovery rate (2018-2019). In addition to a 89% Truck & bus tyre recovery rate for the same year.

End-of-life tyre recovery rates in the passenger & truck sector are exceeding the 2018 National Waste Policy target, set at 80%.
