Policy issue: Prevent waste generation and reuse or recycle as much scrap material as possible
The number of end-of-life vehicles is increasing steadily; despite a higher percentage of recycling, non-recyclable waste from cars continues to grow
Too many tyres are still being land-filled or burnt. Although there have been recent positive developments in recycling, compliance with the EC Directives on land-filling and waste combustion emissions will require considerable investment in new retreating and recycling facilities for used tyres.
