Waste Tyre Regulations

Waste Tyre Regulations

SIMI members who supply tyres as part of their business are legally required under Waste Management Regulations either to register with a waste tyre compliance scheme or self-comply. This includes car retailers who sell tyres. Last October, the Minister for Environment announced that a new scheme for waste tyres will funded by a statutory visible charge on tyres. It is expected that this scheme, which will be underpinned by new legislation, will become operational sometime during 2016 or early 2017.

The DECLG has licensed Repak ELT to operate the single compliance scheme for End of Life Tyres. In the interim in advance of the new regulations, Repak ELT will be operated in two phases. Phase one, which has been in operation since November 2015, has replaced the previous scheme TRACS on a like-for-like basis, and members who wish to exercise this option for dealing with waste tyres will find relevant details on www.repakelt.ie, or info@repakelt.ie.

Alternatively members can self-comply under Article 4 of the Waste Management (Tyres and Waste Tyres) Regulations 2007.
