Impending Waste Tyre Export BanSeptember 14, 2021
Each year, Australia generates 450,000 tonnes of end-of-life tyres each year, of which 75 per cent is from passenger cars, buses and trucks. While around 72 per cent go to productive outcomes, the remainder is sent to landfill, buried or stockpiled.
The Commonwealth’s waste export ban on all used tyres comes into effect 1 December 2021.
From 1 December 2021 you will only be able to export:
- bus, truck and aviation tyres for re-treading to a verified re-treading facility
- tyres that have been processed into crumbs, buffings, granules or shreds
- tyres that have been processed into tyre-derived fuel.
TyreStewardship Australia (TSA) encourages tyre recyclers, collectors and retailers in each municipality to play their part to help reduce the environmental and social harm from end-of-life tyres.

Sparky on a Mission!
Say g’day to the team from McCartney Electrical Solutions. It was great to catch up with them recently and have a chat about what they’ve been up to.
Their Managing Director, Jonno, has a real passion for educating the next generation of electricians – so much so that he and his team were recognised at the Championing Industry in Victorian Schools event earlier this year.
Chatting with Jonno, his passion is clear – and he doesn’t buy into the rhetoric of some that young people are lazy and don’t want to put in the hard yards. His apprentices are living proof. Believing that they can do the job, and to learn, is the first, most important step.
McCartney Electrical are also part of my industry roundtable for the Bayswater Education Plan.
So, a massive shout out to the whole team there – for giving young people a shot at upskilling and getting skills they’ll carry with them for life.
Keep up the great work!
