Tyrecycle, Australia’s largest collector and recycler of end-of-life tyres has gained TSA accreditation.
With five major recycling facilities across the country and a nationwide collection footprint Tyrecycle’s accreditation will provide options for TSA accredited collection in almost every part of Australia. Added to the group of independent collectors and recyclers already accredited, and those seeking accreditation, it is clear that the tyre recycling sector has embraced the TSA as a cooperative industry initiative focussed on continual improvement of sustainable outcomes.
“As the leading national recycler, Tyrecycle is excited to be involved in delivering a greater knowledge, understanding and take-up of tyre recycling,” said Tyrecycle CEO Jim Fairweather.
“Developing a uniform approach to eliminating the devastating effects of ELTs on our environment and community is important, in line with the TSA set target of increasing recycling to 50% in five years.” he said.
According to Tyre Stewardship Australia CEO, Matt Genever: “Tyre Stewardship Australia welcomes Tyrecycle as an accredited participant under the Tyre Stewardship Scheme. Tyrecycle’s market footprint adds considerably to the growing momentum for all industry players to be part of this concerted and cooperative endeavour. Through participation all along the supply chain, from manufacturers to retailers to collectors and recyclers, the knowledge gained and actions taken will result in significantly improved environmental outcomes.”
