Tax Payers Shouldering The Costs of Illegal Dumping

Environmentalists who are active in campaigning have finally welcomed the new regulation in tyre management. They are now calling the attention of the Joint Committee on Communications, Climate Action and Environment to urge them to give their entire support to the program. There are various programs all over the world such as old tyre on the Gold Coast sent for proper recycling.

The challenge they are facing right now is the rumours that the tyre industry along with tyre distributors are trying to recruit the Joint Oireachteas Committee, the same committee that has been scrutinizing the regulation. There are claims that they are doing everything they can in order to block the approval of the environmental regulations.

Around 26 NGOs that are national environmentalists have created a letter to be sent to the members of the Joint Oireachtas Committee. The letter is urging them to pay no attention to the lobbyists and to do side with the right thing for the betterment of the Ireland and the environment as a whole.

They also said that it is not right that the costs of cleaning up dump tyres from the industry have been shouldered by community groups, tax payers as well as local authorities.

Thousands upon thousands of tyres have been thrown illegally all over the nation that it is creating a hazard for human health and the ecosystem. These illegally dumped tyres should be recycled properly which will create employment opportunities for many.

Denis Naughten, the minister for environment, signed a new regulation requiring tyre operators to comply. They should follow the operations conducted by WEEE or Waste of electrical and electronic equipment as well as the Farm Plastics initiatives.

With the new regulation in place, it is expected that there will be a higher number of old tyres that will be recycled rather than dumped illegally. This will also prompt recycling facilities in the nation to create one that is specialized in tyre recycling and it will result to 400 new jobs for the locals. When you purchase a tyre on the Gold Coast, remember to dump the old one properly to help the environment and the country.
