Ensure that the mechanic or garage you use recycles your tyres.

Some tyre service centres will recycle your tyres for free when you purchase new ones. Check terms and conditions with the retailer before changing over your tyres.

Tyre Stewardship Australia (TSA) and a voluntary industry-funded tyre product stewardship scheme have been established to increase the number of tyres recycled in Australia as well as the use of products made with recycled material.

Search Tyre Stewardship Australia for TSA accredited businesses, which commit to playing their part in the sustainable end-of-life use of tyres.

Alternatively, take your unwanted tyres to a recycling point. Charges will apply. Call in advance to check that tyres are accepted for recycling and to ask for current fees.
