Repak tyre scheme update

Repak ELT’s tyre scheme completes their members legal compliance, for the tyres they put onto the market through their business.

Waste compliance, through scheme membership, ensures the environmental management of tyres reported to the scheme, when collected by authorised collectors.

The scheme managed the recycling and recovery of over 3.8 million waste tyres, on behalf of its members in 2021.

Speaking at the launch of its annual member survey, Bill Collins, CEO said: “A core priority of our operation is to have open communication with our members, so we can provide the best service possible. We are always looking for ways to make membership simple and practical.”

Completion of the online survey is simple and takes only five minutes to complete. For each completed survey, a donation is made to charity.

Commenting on the survey Collins went on to say: “Member feedback is important to us. We evaluate all responses and directly address any items that require action on our behalf. These insights from members help shape how the scheme operates, to deliver relevant and useful services and communication.”

Repak ELT currently has in excess of 2,650 members. All members undergo an audit, to ensure their compliance is complete. The auditing process has resumed following the interruption caused by pandemic restrictions.

Commenting on the resumption of auditing Collins stated: “Members who have yet to be audited should expect to hear from an auditor in the coming weeks. The audit process is important as it confirms that the scheme is covering our members obligations for their waste.”

Operators with questions on their tyre waste and legal obligations should contact the Repak ELT Membership team on 01 4618 600, email info@repakelt.ie or log onto www.repakelt.ie.
