The Environment Agency has issued a second version of the Fire Prevention Guidelines for consultation. These guidelines impact on retreaders and recyclers who collect, store and process end of life tyres (they could also impact on new tyre wholesalers, too).
Environmental Agency’s Guideline to Improve Clarity for Retreaders and Recyclers
The document will allow individuals to launch responses by the 30th June 2015.
Fire Prevention Guidelines will be developed as a recommendation, but if you fail to comply and you have an incident you may find your business uninsured. The EA believes that the level of waste fires are unacceptable and they are determined to put Guidelines in place, if not have the Law changed to del with the issue.
