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.
Following a process of industry, TSA and public submissions and consultations, the ACCC has determined that it will grant authorisation for the Tyre Stewardship Scheme for a further 6 years.
In reaching its determination the ACCC considered the progress of the voluntary scheme and the impact that TSA has been able to make in educating both industry and consumers of the need to address a clear environmental challenge.
Sami Bitumen Technologies recently won an industry innovation award for developing a new way to ensure that crumb rubber-modified (CRM) binder for road sealing could be transported and used up to 1,100 kilometres from its point of manufacture with no degradation in its quality and usability.
Now, just in 2018, they have supplied over 6 million litres of pre-blended CRM binder for roads projects across south-east Queensland.
Sustainable modern solutions for age-old engineering tasks
Old truck tyres being used to shore-up difficult construction sites may not initially present as a natural link.
Yet that is exactly what a TSA accredited recycler has been doing. Creating, amongst other solutions, cost effective and quick to construct retaining walls that address the engineering challenge of turning sloping sites into multiple flat levels and that can keep large bodies of soil in place.
