Environment Agency targets North-West motor businesses in anti-tyre fly-tipping campaign

Businesses in Greater Manchester, Cheshire and Merseyside are being targeted by the Environment Agency in a campaign to reduce the number of tyres that are fly-tipped in the area.

The Agency will be contacting around 1,500 tyre dealers, garages, vehicle dismantlers and scrapyards this month with information and advice on the proper disposal of used tyres. It says the aim of the campaign is to remind producers of waste tyres that they are legally responsible for ensuring that tyres are only disposed of by licensed waste carriers, who should be able to produce a registration certificate and a waste transfer note to be signed by both parties.
