Tyre Stewardship Australia (TSA) recently announced it was looking to an independent review to help shape its future. An independent review is designed to ensure product stewardship schemes continue to benefit the public. The review includes upwards of 50 interviews with government bodies, tire recyclers, processors, consumers and anyone involved in a particular scheme.

TSA CEO Lina Goodman describes it as a “hard-core report card” which outlines the scheme’s success and its failings. But it’s not a report that slaps you over the wrist and publicly shames you. If used correctly it can pivot the scheme to do better.

Who is 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 tires.

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 tires.

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.
