Used Tyre Disposal

Pioneering eco-friendly practices with our Tyre Disposal Service

Bearcat is committed to environmental responsibility and strives to minimise waste while amplifying the recycling potential of our End-of-Life Tyre (EOLT) products. As of 2022, Bearcat is a founding member of the Tyre Product Stewardship Scheme (TPSS) for Off-Highway Tyres (OHT).

Our used tyre disposal service directs all the wheels we collect nationwide into stewardship-approved schemes via certified collectors and recyclers.

Bearcats Services for Used Tyre Disposal and Recycling

We take pride in being a trusted tyre disposal provider for industries and organisations keen on initiating or upholding their eco-conscious initiatives and responsibilities. By honouring our pledge to accept, recycle, and repurpose waste wheels, we ensure our clients’ products avoid ending up in landfills, supporting the recycling and reinvention of novel products.

Creating Partnerships

We have a robust relationship with TyreCycle, a worldwide leader in recycling and reusing end-of-life wheels, scrap collection, and related services.

Stewardship Program Collaboration

We cooperate with TPSS to devise creative solutions for reusing wheel materials at the end of their operational lifespan. This includes crucial materials for large-scale road, rail, and civil engineering projects.

Local Council Community Collection

We can collaborate with local councils to gather wheels from communities committed to reducing their environmental footprint. Contact our team to learn about used tyre disposal and pickup to mitigate illegal dumping in most areas.

Partner with us to efficiently manage EOLT products to diminish waste sent to landfills, eliminating environmental and health risks.

Contact the Bearcat team today if you’re ready to collaborate with a credible partner to help you dispose of your wheels and Off The Road (OTR) products swiftly and responsibly.

Make a Significant Impact with Used Tyre Disposal

BEARCAT, in association with MICHELIN AUSTRALIA, are proud founders of the OHT Levy Contributors.

Every year, 56 million products reach the end of their lifecycle. Bearcat imposes a levy on every wheel sold, aiming to discover innovative solutions for these when they’re no longer usable.

The TPSS has so far allocated $8 million to projects to fund approximately 50 new ones. These include:

  • Raising awareness in industries and communities about EOLT management
  • Conducting research and development for new applications of wheel-derived raw materials
  • Implementing independent auditing to eliminate unhygienic, unsafe, and unethical practices

EOLT solution examples:

  • Fuel for cement kilns
  • Pulp and paper industry use
  • Pyrolysis with end markets
  • Proven de-vulcanisation
  • Aggregate for landfill base
  • Material usage: Playground turf, asphalt, and rubber
