If you want your old tyres recycled in the most environmentally sustainable way, only deal with tyre stewardship accredited suppliers. Look for this logo or search accreditors to find out who they are.
The roll-call of TSA accredited tyre retailers continues to grow with a steady stream of new accreditations each month. Now one of the nation’s largest motoring groups, the Royal Automobile Club of Victoria (RACV), has joined the Tyre Product Stewardship Scheme by becoming a TSA accredited tyre retailer.
Serving over 2.1 million members throughout Victoria, RACV has a strong tradition of working towards environmental sustainability in all facets of its operations, products and services within the Mobility, Leisure and Insurance operations.
Old tyres used to create high-tech paving that can water trees
The University of Melbourne and Tasmanian company Merlin Site Services are researching the use of recycled tyre-derived products in the creation of urban paving that can, amongst other benefits, provide water to nearby trees.
Use of permeable pavement in urban storm-water management systems can help to increase groundwater recharge, reduce surface runoff, decrease the risk of flash flooding, help with treatment of storm-water, and prevent runoff pollution to connected water bodies.
The Green Tyre Project launches with a rush of visits
The new consumer face of TSA has already generated more engagement with tyre buyers in a few weeks than for all the last 10 months. The Green Tyre Project www.greentyreproject.com.au was created to make the next step of the consumer engagement campaign both simple to understand and easy to participate in.
In just 21 days the new site, and it’s supporting campaign, have generated over 5 million impressions and close to 120,000 visitor sessions.
