Dumped used tyres are serious fire risks and a perfect habitat for disease carrying mosquitos. But environment protection agencies did not know where many of our waste tyres were going.
We began an investigation of tyre dealers and waste tyre collectors. With the help of industry insiders we found dodgy storage sites and bushland dumps (see this video). State governments are now bringing in new laws and beefing up policing resources. We are maintaining our watchdog role.
