Tyre Storage

An Interim Waste Management Policy has been introduced in Victoria to reduce the risk of fires through inappropriate storage of tyres.  This policy relates to Victorian premises that hold more than 40 tonnes of waste tyres at a time.  It requires these premises store the tyres only for reuse, recycling, transfer and they be stored in a way that they are not a risk to the environment or human health.

Fire Services (MFB and CFA) have created guidelines for Open air storage of new or used tyres and Indoor storage of new or used tyres

EPA Victoria will be inspecting premises that store waste tyres and acting on the WMP if requirements have not been met.
