Over 600 tyre outlets have joined Repak ELT, exceeding the 2016 membership target set by the Department of the Environment, by more than 25%. These 600 plus outlets have made a commitment to join and report to the scheme, to ensure the environmental handling of the waste tyres they collectively generate, through their businesses.
Repak ELT’s objective is to ensure all end of life tyres generated by members, are taken out of the waste stream and managed to the highest environmental standards. The list of all Repak ELT members has been published on www.repakelt.ie today (15th April), with the local authorities in each area also getting a list of all operators and signed up members.
As more outlets become compliant, the space to trade for non-compliant operators, becomes smaller. Between now and the launch of phase two of the Repak ELT scheme, the membership list will play a central role in consumer awareness campaigns. Each new operator who joins the Repak ELT scheme is not only helping the environment, they are also helping to level the playing pitch in the battle against non-compliant operators.
