TRA joins All-Party Sustainable Resource Group (APSRG)

18th August 2017

We are delighted to announce that the Tyre Recovery Association (TRA) have become members of the APSRG.

Peter Taylor OBE, TRA Secretary General, stated: “Issues relating to end of life tyre recovery are complex and challenging so it is important we work closely with parliamentarians and others in informing them of the options and opportunities open to us. Under the EU Landfill Directive we are required to recover, reuse or recycle virtually 100% of waste tyre arisings, an objective our industry has successfully met for more than a decade now. But if we are to maintain this creditable record we must do even more to foster best practice.

“We exist in an uncertain and sometimes inhospitable regulatory climate and so it is more important than ever that we play our part in properly reconciling the needs of the environment with the sustainability of our own waste stream and recovery infrastructure. As members of the of the APSRG we very much look forward to doing just that!”
