At a meeting of Directors of Tyre Stewardship Australia held today, The Board has regretfully accepted the resignation of Gerry Morvell, its inaugural Chairman.
Board members wish to acknowledge the substantial contribution Gerry has made to the Industry Working Group leading to the establishment of the Tyre Stewardship Scheme as well as the pivotal role performed in guiding the scheme to its current position.
Most well-known tyre brands are members of the Tyre Stewardship Australia and more than 1,000 tyre retail outlets are accredited. Furthermore, tyre recyclers handling about 70% of the 51 million tyres generated by Australians each year are part of the organisation which is now investing in research and development for new tyre derived products.
The TSA Board has begun the process of seeking an independent Chair and will make further announcements in due course.
