JAX Tyres commits to TSA accreditation

Consumer choice among accredited Tyre Stewardship Australia (TSA) outlets is expected to receive a boost with JAX Tyres today announcing its retailers were committing to the accreditation scheme.

With 84 retailers across its network, JAX Tyres will exercise an environmentally sustainable management of its disposal of end-of-life tyres through the scheme said the TSA in a statement.

JAX Tyres will also, under the arrangement, help support the public education and market development efforts of the TSA.

It joins a host of other retail chains in accreditation. These include Beaurepaires, Bob Jane T-Marts, Bridgesone Service Centres and Bridgestone Select stores, K-mart Tyre & Auto Service, Goodyear Auto Centres, Tyres & More, Tyrepower, TyrePlus and selected Continental and independent retail outlets.

1500 tyre stores nationwide are currently TSA accredited.

Dale Gilson, TSA, CEO, said there were several consumer options available within the scheme.

“The JAX Tyres decision to join the nationwide list of accredited retailers is both a welcome development and an indication that the Australian tyre retail sector is comprehensively behind the efforts to ensure we deal with the environmental challenge of end-of-life tyres,” he said.

“For consumers, the addition of JAX Tyres adds further comfort that their chosen tyre retailer is committed to doing the right thing for our environment and the development of a viable future circular economy.”

The TSA is currently invested in the research and recycling of new tyre-derived products of the 56 million end-of-life tyres generated in Australia each year.

Jeff Board, JAX Quickfit, CEO, said that becoming part of the TSA accreditation scheme was a step in the direction of ensuring all of its future operations were environmentally sustainable.

“We have continually reviewed operations to ensure the most environmentally sensitive processes and policies possible and we look forward to working with TSA on further addressing the challenge of managing the Australian waste tyre challenge,” he said.

The ACCC recently granted the TSA a further six-year authorisation for the Tyre Stewardship Scheme.
