South Africa Postpones Environmental Tire Levy

According to a disclosure by the South Africa’s National Treasury, the environmental tire levy will not be introduced until February 1, 2017, instead of from October 1 as had been planned. The reason for the postponement is to allow time for the South African Revenue Service to conduct further consultations with all affected parties on the practical arrangements for its implementation. The Government announced in the 2015/16 Budget that an environmental levy to encourage tire recycling would be introduced at a rate of ZAR2.30 (USD0.17) per kilogram. Revenues from the levy are to be deposited into the National Revenue Fund, and an allocation will be made available through the budget of the Department of Environmental Affairs for the recycling of waste tires. All producers and importers of tires will be required to fully participate in the implementation process.   Article source: Tax – News

100 million tires recycled in Alberta since early 90s

One of Canada’s first tire recycling programs is taking on six million tires annually Alberta’s tire recycling program has reached a significant milestone. One hundred million tires have been recycled since the program’s inception in 1992. “This achievement shows Albertans’ commitment to protecting the environment is stronger than ever,” said Shannon Phillips, Minister of Environment and Parks. “It means that in every community there is a determination to do the right thing. Through Alberta’s tire recycling program, valuable material is diverted from landfills and recycled, creating jobs and new products that come back full-circle into our communities.” Alberta has one of the first tire recycling programs in Canada. It is very successful, with approximately six million tires recycled annually. “Albertans, municipalities, tire and vehicle retailers and the province’s recycling industry should be proud of this achievement and their contribution to eliminating tires from landfills and stockpiles. They have all played a key role in having those 100 million tires recycled into products such as sidewalk blocks, roofing tiles and playground surfaces,” said Bob Barss, Chairman of Alberta Recycling. There are 350 collection sites across the province set up by urban and rural municipalities and First Nations and Metis Settlements that accept tires for recycling. Since 2000, Alberta Recycling’s municipal grant programs have provided over $12 million to communities. The recycling of 100 million tires was celebrated in Lethbridge recently at the grand opening of the new playground at Gilbert...

California Tire Recycling Bill Rejected

On Aug. 31 the California Assembly has rejected a tire recycling bill supported by environmental groups but opposed by tire manufacturers and dealers. Bill 1239 would have established a new tire regulatory fee in the state and replaced a popular tire grant program with a new incentive program and it was voted down by the assembly Aug. 31 by a 34-34 party-line vote. As described by CAW, AB 1239 would have provided incentive payments to end-users of recycled tires to improve the state’s recycling rate. It also would have given the California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) authority to add up to $1 to the state’s $1.75-per-tire scrap tire feel to cover the costs of regulating waste tires. CAW said the bill would “help expand the state’s tire recycling infrastructure to reduce greenhouse gases, create jobs, and cut the statewide and local costs associated with tire cleanup.” However, tire industry representatives were doubtful about the bill. They were supporting its goal of achieving a 75-percent recycling rate, but felt its definition of recycling was too restrictive. “They didn’t include tire-derived fuel in their definition of recycling, or exports of tires to other states or countries,” said Terry Leveille, president of Sacramento-based TL & Associates and legislative representative for the California Tire Dealers Association (CTDA). They also didn’t allow the use of tire-derived aggregate, except for projects involving methane...
