Every year around 6.5 million tyres are imported into New Zealand. When they reach their end of use, about two-thirds go to landfill or are illegally dumped, creating the risk of fire and toxic emissions. In 2020, an estimated 1000 electric vehicle batteries reached their end of use. By 2030 that number could reach 84,000 each year.
