Tyre Stewardship Australia (TSA) has congratulated Queensland online tyre retailer, TyreStock, for winning a highly respected business award.
A crumb rubber asphalt trial will soon begin in Melbourne, with funding from Tyre Stewardship Australia and the Australian Road Research Board.
A further six local government authorities have received TSA accreditation, after using tyre-derived raw materials in infrastructure projects.
Around 850 used tyres have been recycled to pave a 335 metre stretch of road as part of a crumbed rubber asphalt trial in the City of Mitcham, South Australia.
With reauthorisation from the ACCC, Tyre Stewardship Australia is increasing the scope of its product stewardship scheme to fund demonstration projects that use tyre-derived products.
