NZ Government Shies Away From Tyre Issue

The New Zealand Imported Motor Vehicle Industry Association (IMVIA) is extremely disappointed by the announcement that the NZ government has decided to not proceed with the declaration of tyres as a Priority Product under the Waste Minimisation Act 2008.

Sluggish Process for Tyre Markings

This comes after an industry wide working group researched and prepared a report and consensus recommendation at the direct request of Minister Nick Smith.

The key issue was and remains the market failure in the collection and disposal of end-of life tyres, with recent news items about the stockpiles and consequent risks as examples. A declaration of tyres as a Priority Product would have been the first step toward responsible product stewardship and mitigating the environmental effects of end-of-life tyres.
