Bridgestone reuses 400,000 truck tyres per year in Australia and New Zealand through our Bandag retread process. Instead of disposing of tyres with worn out treads, these can be remanufactured, and put back to work again and again. By reusing worn tyres and creating Bandag retreads, we reduce pollution, conserve oil and use less energy during the production process. The Bandag manufacturing plant also has a series of environmental features such as noise reduction of factory plant and machinery, solar panels at key sites, dust and emissions control measures, water harvesting, and recycling and monitoring of water usage. In addition to this, the rubber shavings from our Bandag factories across Australian and New Zealand which were once waste, are now recycled locally in Queensland and manufactured into residential and commercial flooring, sports surfaces, children’s playgrounds and waterparks, athletics tracks, and many other items.
