About Tyre Stewardship Australia

Tyre Stewardship Australia has been formed to implement the national Tyre Product Stewardship Scheme to promote the development of viable markets for end-of-life tyres in Australia.

This will have the multiple benefits of transforming a waste product into a useful commodity, creating new industries and employment opportunities while also reducing the environmental harm caused by the illegal dumping of old tyres.

TSA is made up of representatives from across the tyre supply chain including tyre retailers, manufacturers, recyclers and collectors. TSA members also include the Australian Motor Industry Federation.
