The new Compliance Scheme for Tyres and Waste Tyres is operated by Repak ELT which is underpinned by amended regulations with a registration and reporting role for Repak ELT.
The new structures are funded by a visible Environmental Management Cost (vEMC) and came into effect on 1st October 2017
These Regulations replace the Waste Management (Tyres and Waste Tyres) Regulations 2007 and impose obligations on persons who supply tyres to the Irish market, whether as retailers, importers or manufacturers and on persons who manage waste tyres. These Regulations are designed to maximise the reuse, recycling and recovery of waste tyres. All producers and retailers must be registered with Repak ELT.
