Waste Tyre Enforcement

Local authorities regulate the proper disposal of waste tyres.

The  Waste Management (Tyres and Waste Tyres) Regulations 2017 (SI No 400 of 2017) promote the environmentally sound management of waste tyres.  The commencement date for these Regulations was the 1st October 2017.

The regulations impose obligations on persons who supply tyres to the Irish market, whether as manufacturers, wholesalers, suppliers, traders, or retailers and on the collectors of waste tyres and farmers.

Under article 21 and 22 of the aforementioned regulations producers and retailers of tyres must be a member of a compliance scheme operated by an approved body.

Circol ELT Limited is the approved body as set out in the Regulations.
