Message from the CEO

Jim Fairweather

The tyre recycling sector has just been through the toughest economic period in its relatively short but dynamic history; plummeting energy prices, the closure of several overseas TDF markets and a falling Australian dollar decimated the national TDF market. But rather than deter us, this recent industry crisis has only strengthened our resolve to develop domestic markets for tyre-derived products and reduce our reliance on volatile global TDF markets.

I’d like to take the opportunity to thank our loyal customers for their understanding and commitment through this challenging period. We remain committed to continuing to provide you with the premier service at a cost-effective price.

Please see inside for exciting news about many of our customers, not the least of which is the celebration of our decade-long association with Bob Jane.

In this edition, in line with the development of the domestic market, Tyrecycle is proud to announce a further commitment to our industry, with our membership of
Tyre Stewardship Australia. This scheme is government- endorsed and has a goal of increasing the recycling of end-of-life tyres to 50% within five years. We look forward to achieving this in partnership with our valued clients.

Also inside, please take time to read about our investment in a new purpose-designed and built mobile shredder, which means we can now come to wherever your tyre stockpile is located.

I hope you enjoy our newsletter.
