Sinn Féin MLA Megan fearon has supported calls for a central register of all tyres to combat the illegal disposal of waste tyres. tyres“There is no doubt that the illegal disposal of tyres is a major problem, particularly in rural areas” she said. “It simply doesn’t make sense that we do not have effective measures in place to track tyres to make sure they don’t end up on bonfires or illegally dumped. “We brought forward a proposal to the Assembly calling for the creation of a central register which would track all tyres from their manufacture, sale, throughout the life of the tyre, right to safe disposal and I was pleased that it received the support of the Assembly. “That would allow us to effectively track all tyres to make sure they do not cause environmental problems and would also provide information to enforce any breach of the regulations.
