While ELT removal operations are still ongoing at a deposit in Povigliano (RE), a new collection operation from old stock has started in the municipality of Aulla, Massa Carrara Province, Tuscany.

About 3,000 End of Life Tyres tons were present in the deposit, located in the “ex-Cjmeco” area; Ecopneus is taking action, under its sole charge, to completely remove this stock preventing any risk of fire, as well as the spread of diseases due to the proliferation of insects in the area. Theoperations will be completed by next June.

Over the years, the site has represented, and still represents, a serious environmental andlandscape problem, since it contained a huge quantity of different wastes, that in 2003 were the subject of a point of order.
