In its recent press release, Tyre Stewardship Australia (TSA) – the end-of-life tire management authority designing programs and regulations for tire recycling and material recovery in the country – reported that the company was privileged to attend the Waste Innovation and Recycling Awards (WIRA) and sponsor the award for Outstanding WARR Project: Regional.

The award was given to Macedon Ranges Shire Council for their Four Bin System (Let’s get sorted) – a project that has delivered cost-effective and high-impact success in its targeted field.

Council was one of the first councils in Victoria to introduce the four-bin waste and recycling system in February 2020. Within two years of the four-bin roll-out, Macedon Ranges Shire Council has achieved the highest diversion of resources from landfill of any council in Victoria since the system was introduced — with a 74% diversion rate.

TSA was also delighted to showcase their new video, created especially for WIRA, sending a very important message to the industry:

“By working together, we can reinvent the (old) wheel.”
