Tyrecycle started in 1992 as a division of a major tyre manufacturer. Due to an unmet demand, it quickly expanded into a national tyre recycler for all types of tyres. Today it is part of the highly regarded integrated resource recovery group, ResourceCo. We’re continually finding new ways to reuse and recycle scrap tyres to stop them going to waste and landfill.
To be the market leader within the Australian Tyre Recycling Industry by providing superior service in an efficient, environmentally sound, safe and socially responsible manner.
We have a commitment to eliminate sending tyres to landfill or whole baled tyres offshore. We are the only producer of Tyre Derived Fuel (TDF) that can guarantee a full chain of custody from cradle-to-grave; ensuring that all our products, Granule, Crumb and TDF is utilised in an environmentally sound way. This is our promise and we stand by it.
Tyrecycle is the market leader in the tyre recycling industry in Australia with a national network of collection and processing capabilities. This includes Australia’s largest crumbing plant based at our Head Office in Somerton, Melbourne.
Our manufacturing infrastructure is second to none in the Australian market. We have 5 secure processing facilities, 12 specialised rubber shredders, 5 granulators, and 3 large scale mills. Tyrecycle is the only company in the industry to have a processing plant in each state of Australia.
Wherever there are scrap tyres to be collected, we’ll be there. Tyrecycle’s fleet of over 70 collection vehicles is unsurpassed in Australia. We provide a complete service almost anywhere is Australia. From wheel weights and batteries, from forklift tyres to earthmover tyres; if it needs collection and recycling we’ll be there.
Supporting Tyrecycle’s existing fixed-location operations across Australia is our purpose designed and built mobile shredder, providing an efficient, reliable and sustainable solution for councils, remote miners and construction sites across Australia. We wanted to develop a portable solution that could process waste tyres and conveyor belting—anywhere in Australia—into a product of the same quality and specification that we produce in our permanent processing facilities. Depending on requirements we can attend onsite and either shred in-situ or transport the rubber waste back to one of our five processing facilities across Australia.
We strongly believe that we all need to be smarter about how we use the earth’s limited resources. At Tyrecycle are committed to being a world leader at recycling and reusing rubber products to meet this belief.
