Tyre Recycling - More Important Than You Think
Two football stadiums’ worth, or more than 100,000 tonnes - whichever way you’d like to put it, that’s how many tyres Bridgestone has managed to divert from landfill over the past 20 years with the help of Australia’s biggest and most passionate tyre recycler – Tyrecycle.
It’s a longstanding partnership that’s generating significant environmental benefits for Australia,
as we work to create a cleaner, safer and healthier environment.
That’s right – the running track you train on, the soft-fall surfaces at your local playground, the brake pads that keep your family safe on the road, the building insulation that helps you stay warm at night, and even the squeaky new tyres on your wheelie bin, could all be made using recycled tyres.
Who knows, they might even contain some rubber from those tyres we removed from your car just a few months ago.
In line with our Tomorrow Matters initiative, our company’s environmental efforts don’t stop at tyre recycling. We’re constantly looking at ways to minimise the impact that our products and manufacturing processes have on our world.
The agreement with Tyrecycle is helping ensure a healthy environment for current and future generations – and that makes it one of the most important relationships we have.
