Kuwait Needs a Recycling System


Kuwait successfully relocated the stock at its Arrhiya tyre dump to a processing site at Salmi. However, instead of the managed stockpile that previously existed, now a new location is plagued with illegal tyre dumping with dozens of tyres being deposited around Amghara, according to Al-Rai Daily.

Kuwait Faces New Tyre Dumping Issue

Amghara is home to numerous scrap yards and vehicle dismantlers.

The tyres are being dumped from vehicle scrapyards and other sources. The illegal operators dropping tyres off now sometimes set them on fire in an attempt to hide their crime.

It looks like Kuwait needs a better management system for its ELT.
