How Tyrewise works for you

SIMPLE BOOKING SYSTEM

Booking collections of your end-of-life tyres is simple with the Tyrewise tracking software. Registered transporters deliver your tyres to registered processors and manufacturers.

INCREASED CERTAINTY

Tyrewise helps balance supply and demand for end-of-life tyres by providing regular picks up by registered transporters and providing certainty for registered processors.

TRANSPARENT OUTCOMES

The transparency of Tyrewise reporting means end-of-life tyres end up where they are supposed to be, reducing the risk of illegal dumping, stockpiling or landfilling.

YOU ARE KAITIAKI

Poor outcomes for old tyres in the past have reflected badly on the industry. With Tyrewise, you can reduce your environmental impact and be part of the solution.

What tyres are covered by Tyrewise?

Initially, the scheme will cover all pneumatic (air filled) and solid tyres for use on motorised vehicles for cars, trucks, buses, motorcycles, aircraft and off-road vehicles (‘regulated tyres’). There is an exemption for retreaded aircraft tyres.

Bicycle tyres, tyres for non-motorised equipment and coils for retreads / precured tread rubber will be included in Tyrewise at a later date, with consultation planned for late 2024.

What's my role?

Each part of the supply chain has its responsibility to steward tyres – from importers who will pay tyre stewardship fees on behalf of the consumer, to the processors who turn the tyres into a useful feedstock for manufacturers. And of course, the consumer who will leave their old tyres with the retailer or garage fitting their new tyres, or take an unwanted spare tyre to a registered collection site.

Together we are kaitiaki, protecting our communities.
