One of the most prominent Toyota dealerships in the country is leading the charge of car dealerships gaining TSA tyre retailer accreditation. This development sees additional players in the tyre supply chain committing themselves to sustainably managing their end-of-life tyres within the Tyre Product Stewardship Scheme.
Brighton Toyota, occupying pride of place on Melbourne’s Nepean Highway, and their Mentone Toyota sister operation, have both become TSA accredited tyre suppliers.
Consistent with the Toyota focus on sustainability, the TSA accreditation is a recognition of the significant tyre supply and end-of-life tyre disposal role of retail car dealerships.
Welcoming the awarding of accreditation Brighton and Mentone Toyota General Manager, John Forbes, commented; “Toyota has always led the way in environmental initiatives, from being the leader in delivering hybrid powered motoring to ensuring the minimum environmental impact in every aspect of our operations, in production, in retail and in service.”
“Gaining TSA Accreditation is a recognition of our focus on sustainability and a commitment to playing our part in addressing the environmental challenge posed by end-of-life tyres. We encourage other dealerships to come on-board and help the valuable work being done by TSA and its partners on creating opportunities from this previously intractable issue.”
