The Swiss Canton of Jura has recorded an increase in the illegal dumping of used tyres. These tyres have to be disposed of at a cost to the public purse.
Swiss Authorities Will Collect Illegally Dumped Tyres, with Prosecutions to Follow
The Swiss authorities are now increasing their monitoring and control of the movement of used tyres. In particular, they will be looking at the unauthorised trade in tyres at all levels of the market. Any future contraventions uncovered will be presented to the public prosecutor.
