Message from the CEO

Jan 2015



Whether you are a long-standing customer, a new customer or a supplier, it’s nice to meet you and welcome you to our newsletter.

Writing this article has given me the opportunity to reflect on the first 6 months of my new role in this fastpaced industry.

At Tyrecycle, our customers are the most valued part of our business. Safety. Quality. Customer – These three words drive what we do here at Tyrecycle. We think it’s what sets us apart from others in the industry.

Across the nation our governing authorities are tightening legislation, which is good news and means protection for industry, the environment and importantly the community. NSW has just released far-reaching reforms to waste management and specifically tyres (see article on page 5). The Victorian Environment Protection Authority recently took submissions to a Regulatory Impact Statement (RIS) and all other state governments are showing strong signs of engagement on tyre waste issues.

Tyrecycle has recently invested several million dollars to complete our processing infrastructure and footprint plan. Within the last year we have completed the design, fabrication, building and installation of new shredding plants in Western Australia and South Australia. We have also extended our Victorian shredding and processing capability as part of a new plant upgrade plan, with assistance from Sustainability Victoria. This now makes us not only the only national collector of tyres but also the only recycler that has processing/manufacturing capability in every capital city of Australia. This allows us to service our customers more efficiently than ever before.

Hoping you had a wonderful festive season and I look forward to bringing you more news in our next newsletter.
