EC action plan on waste tyres nears completion

Work on the EC's first "priority waste stream" is drawing to a close with the completion of a draft action plan on waste tyres. The plan proposes a ban on landfilling of whole tyres by 1996 and shredded tyres by 2000, together with a series of waste minimisation, collection and recycling measures. But the impact which the plan will make is in some doubt because much of it appears unlikely to be implemented by means of binding EC legislation.
