PLANS for a waste tyre disposal site in a Bradford neighborhood have been branded a fire risk by a worried resident.

Sourced through Scoop.it from: www.thetelegraphandargus.co.uk

In my opinion the residents have a right to be worried. A recent fire in near by Halifax, took two weeks to get under control, sending out thick black toxic smoke.

These Waste tyre disposal site facilities

Therefore, should be miles away in secluded places. We have thousands of such areas. Especially,  in the dis-used coal mining areas. Waste tyre disposal has always been a huge problem. Thus, for the industry. In days gone by many of our old tyre casings were indeed remoulded. Consequently, tyre collection companies. Would pay us £1 a tyre to get their hands on them, especially the Michelin casings.

Michelin casings were and still are regarded as the best. As a result,  and so were much sought after for remoulding. However, things changed when we started to import from China. Cheap car tyres for sale. As a result, are a common site in tyre adverts. This diminished the remould car tyres industry virtually overnight.

Many well known names closed down. This left the problem of what do we do with our waste tyres? . Therefore, new laws were introduced. Millions of these waste tyres were just dumped in the country side and it became clear that heavy penalties were to be dished out to anybody who was caught tyre dumping.

calling in at tyre retailers and charging £1 to get rid of the old tyres for us. Companies who set up legal tyre collection businesses had to be registered by law.

This cut out much of the tyre dumping and this started to improve in the ways that waste tyres were recycled. The industry now believes that we now recycle many of our old scrap tyres in a green and environmental friendly way in a waste tyre disposal site .

I am not sure though that having a waste tyre pyrolysis plant in a city like Bradford is a good idea. These facilities often catch fire and can take weeks to extinguish, only time will tell?
