Collecting and processing car tyres

This information is provided by: Netherlands Enterprise Agency

If you produce or import car tyres, there are rules governing the collection and processing of used tyres. You are responsible for managing the tyres until the waste phase (producer responsibility). You must for example:

  • accept a used car tyre for every car tyre provided;
  • accept a number of car tyres from the local council (the number depends on your market share);
  • process the car tyres you accept in a useful and responsible manner.

You must inform the Human Environment and Transport Inspectorate External link(ILT) as to how you are going to comply with these obligations. You must also provide an annual report with the results from the previous year.
