Sustainability Victoria is working to grow the market for tyre-derived products and/or fuels and reduce used tyre stockpiles.
Better management of end of life tyres can reduce waste to landfill, eliminate environmental and health risks, and create viable market development opportunities.
At a national level Sustainability Victoria is collaborating with industry and other state governments to support the Tyre Product Stewardship Scheme and is co-leading a National Market Development Strategy for Used Tyres with the Queensland Government and Tyre Stewardship Australia (TSA).
Other initiatives include:
Sustainability Victoria is also working closely with the EPA and the broader tyre industry to support the new regulatory framework for end of life tyres.
Tyre Stewardship Australia (TSA) is a key collaborative partner for Sustainability Victoria in developing sustainable tyre markets. TSA has been established to administer a national tyre product stewardship scheme. Minister for the Environment, the Hon. Greg Hunt MP, launched TSA on behalf of the tyre industry on 20 January 2014.
Sustainability Victoria will work with Australian Tyres Recyclers Association (ATRA) to assist in the creation of new businesses and jobs through the realisation of cost-effective and environmentally sound recycling activities.
