Bogota Tyre Recycling Days

After the event, the collected tyres will be delivered to an authorised agency to take charge of their use and valuation as raw material for new production processes.
This initiative from the Ministry of the Environment is inviting citizens to participate in the second ‘Llantaton’ event of the year. Individuals or commercial and service establishments may deliver used bicycle, motorcycle, automobile, truck, and tractor-trailer tyres with rims up to 22.5 inches.
Earlier in February, a Llantaton day in Bosa saw 570 tyres collected and further processed.
