Tire Industry Mourns the Loss of Mike Hennessy

The tire industry lost another major figure in B.C. and Canada with the recent passing of Mike Hennessy. Mike was one of the original key operations staff who helped create the initial start-up of BC’s Financial Incentives for Recycling Scrap Tires (FIRST) program in the early 1990s. He and his team managed FIRST through to 2007 when he was asked to help transition the FIRST program to a producer responsibility model. He then became the first Executive Director of Tire Stewardship BC (TSBC) until his retirement in 2014. Today, TSBC is considered one of the premier tire stewardship organizations in the world.

Mike was also instrumental through his work with the Canadian Association of Tire Recycling Agencies (CATRA) lending his operational experience and expertise, and helping all provinces achieve better outcomes from end-of-life tire management.
