Tyre Stewardship Australia Welcomes Kmart Tyre & Auto Service
Tyre Stewardship Australia, has welcomed Kmart Tyre & Auto Service among its accredited entities.
The accreditation of the Kmart Tyre & Auto Service network adds to the many currently accredited outlets of Tyrepower, Beaurepaires, Bridgestone Australia-owned as well as numerous independent stores already participating in the Scheme.
With the accreditation process underway for a number of other tyre retail operations, Australian consumers will soon notice the TSA accreditation logo at most retail outlets around the country: the latest inclusion of more than 240 Kmart Tyre & Auto Service stores, brings the total of TSA-accredited tyre outlets to almost 1,000.
Adam Pay, Managing Director of Kmart Tyre & Auto Service stated: “As a business, we take our environmental strategy seriously and our participation in the Tyre Stewardship Australia Scheme further demonstrates our existing commitment to the responsible recycling of end of life tyres”.
Commenting on the progress TSA CEO, Matt Genever, said: “The impact of the accreditation scheme is increasingly obvious to consumers and industry players.
“With so many retailers, collectors and recyclers on board, we are well on the way to achieving one of our key objectives; to ensure that accredited entities operate efficiently with one another right through the tyre distribution chain. This will enable TSA to provide transparency on the fate of our end-of-life tyres through our integrated reporting system.
I am confident this momentum will continue. We are also well advanced in creating the structures and resources necessary to meet our other objectives of market development for recycled material and public and industry education.”
