TSA is an industry-led voluntary product stewardship organisation, funded by tyre importers and auto brands.
A tyre importer may choose to pass on a levy to their retail network. TSA is not involved, or can influence an importers decision to recover this cost through its retail network.
If you have any questions regarding disposal fees, please contact your tyre importer or head office to discuss.
