Tyre disposal

Work has commenced on a new tyre processing plant in Jandakot, which will recycle tyres that would otherwise have been disposed of in landfills, including those from mining haul trucks. 

Located in Western Australia’s Jandakot Airport Industrial Estate, the $7 million Complete Tyre Solutions recycling facility will accommodate equipment required to process passenger, car, truck, industrial construction, and quarry tyres. 

It will recycle more than 9,000 tonnes of waste tyres, processing them into 3mm of crumb rubber, reusable high tensile wire, and reusable texture. 

The crumb rubber will be produced to specification for use in the Western Australian asphalt and spray seal industry.

Western Australian Environment Minister, Reece Whitby, said the project will benefit the state’s environment, boost the economy, and create jobs. 

“Projects such as this demonstrate the Government’s commitment to innovation within the recycling industry,” Mr Whitby said. 

“Reusing waste promotes resource efficiency, protects the environment and helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. I encourage all Western Australians to avoid waste and increase material recovery.

“I am confident that this new tyre recycling project will benefit many Western Australians and our environment.”

Funded by the Western Australian and Federal Governments’ $20 million Recycling Modernisation Fund, the project will help the state manage the impacts of the ban on exporting waste tyres.

Construction is set to begin in Jandakot in a few weeks.
