National Market Development Strategy for Used Tyres

Dealing with the challenge presented by Australia’s generation of more than 56 million end-of-life tyres each year in a sustainable manner has taken an important step forward with the release of the National Market Development Strategy for Used Tyres.

Commissioned in cooperation with Tyre Stewardship Australia, the five-year strategy, was endorsed by all State Environment Ministers in 2017, and provides a collaborative framework to maximise market development opportunities to increase use of locally produced recycled tyre-derived products.

The strategy was co-funded by Sustainability Victoria, Environment and Heritage Protection (EHP) Queensland, Department of Environment Regulation WA, NSW Environment Protection Authority and Tyre Stewardship Australia.
