Although almost 100% of the discarded tires from the collection points is recovered today, there is still the serious problem of stockpiling of whole used tires in the yards of the end users, which was created in the first years of operation of Ecoelastika.
The reason for the stockpiling of ELT’s in temporal storage areas and facilities’ yards was the need for immediate collection of all discarded tires by Ecoelastika, given the ban on landfilling of ELT’s which has been in effect since July 2003.
