Industry Consultative Group ready to provide valuable input
Following an open application process TSA’s Industry Consultative Group has been instituted with representatives from importers, retailers, recyclers, collectors and from the Australian Tyre Recycling Association (ATRA).
With an ICG member having an initial 2-year term, the importer representatives will come from Michelin with the second position awaiting to be filled, whilst the retail representatives will be Tanya Parry, of Switched On Mechanical & Switched On Tyres in Helensburg NSW and Michael Clark, of Jax Tyres Smithfield, also in NSW.
Recyclers will be represented by Jim Fairweather, of Tyrecycle, Karsten Larsen, of Tyre Crumb in Victoria and Andrew Drennan, of Peal Global in Queensland. Collectors will be represented by David Hyman, of Ozcom Recycling and ATRA representation will be through Executive Officer, Rob Kelman.
There was strong interest in participating in the group and the TSA Board thanks all those who took the time to apply for membership in the inaugural committee.
The first meeting of the consultative group will be held in Sydney on November 8.
