Monthly collection results of 2019

The collection of End-of-Life Tyres managed by Ecopneus is based on a careful monthly planning, aimed at the reaching of the annual collection target provided for by the legislation . It is also functional for complying with the normal seasonal fluctuations of the operators’ requests of ELT collection. Indeed, these are linked to the changing of tyres which, for example, reach a peak in springtime and autumn due to the changing of winter/summer tyres.

In the charts, the orange bar graphs (the “operative targets”) indicate the amounts of ELTs that Ecopneus has planned to collect during the whole year in order to reach the annual collection objectives set by the legislation.

As per art. 228 of the Legislative Decree 152/2006, tyre producers and importers have to provide – either individually or in an associated form such as Ecopneus is – for the management of an amount of ELTs equal to the one they place on the spare parts market during the previous year. This follows the principle of the Extended Producer’s Responsibility – an organizational model adopted by the majority of the European Countries.

The mission of Ecopneus is to guarantee the tracking and recovery of about 210,000 tonnes of End-of-Life Tyres every year.

Thanks to careful planning and up-stream identification of the operative collection targets on a monthly basis, Ecopneus can concentrate on the collection of End-of-Life Tyres in those months of the year characterised by greater collection requests. This allows to better comply with the requests of the spare parts market operators (tyre dealers, service stations, mechanics) and supplying them with a constant service all over the Italian territory (small islands included) during the course of the whole year.
