Tyrecycle commissioned the first South Australian full secure tyre recycling facility in July 2014.
Built at Meyer Road in Lonsdale, one of Adelaide’s southern suburbs, the facility will recycle all passenger vehicle, 4x4, light truck, truck, earthmoving and off the road (OTR) tyres and conveyor belts within the SA market.
Tyrecycle is a member of the ResourceCo Group, and the investment in SA complements other Tyrecycle sites around the country to complete the business with secure facilities nationally.
Tyrecycle can recycle annually in excess of 250,000 tonnes of rubber across Australia, more than the total of the passenger vehicle/light truck and truck market.
The new facility provides the SA operation with the capability to process 25,000 tonnes of rubber annually.
The recycled product is used for a variety of applications like road surfacing, tile adhesive, Tyre Derived Fuel (TDF) and sporting surfaces.
"This new facility extends the recycling services provided to our local key retail partners like Bob Jane T-Marts, Bridgestone and Kmart Tyre & Auto," said Tyrecycle CEO, Jim Fairweather.
This is a significant investment within the Tyre recycling industry and adds strength to providing the best recycling outcome for Australia's waste tyres.
