TSA is concerned that as the ban nears, heightened activity of collecting waste tyres may occur. Organisations that fail to meet regulatory requirements and TSA Scheme guidelines may enter the market in the lead up to the ban for a quick injection of revenue. This comes at a time where compliant organisations are required to change their business model, pricing structure and practices. For some, significant investment is necessary to transition from baling for export to other means of processing, such as shredding and crumbing.
We ask that Tyre Retailers keep a watchful eye for new “pop-up” collectors offering cheap EOLT collections. We encourage tyre retailers to conduct due diligence on service providers engaged to collect waste tyres. The use of TSA accredited collectors and recyclers provides assurance that operators are meeting regulatory and Scheme guidelines.
If you see or hear of illegal dumping and stockpiling of waste tyres, please advise TSA by emailing email@example.com
