British company Protyre agreed to conduct clearance of thousands of scrap tires that were illegally stockpiling at the Brockdale nature reserve near Pontefract. The firm started the cleanup last month. It turned out that irresponsible scrap tire traders dumped some 1,000 tires at the premises of the natural reserve to avoid disposal fees.

Protyre volunteered after it noticed the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust’s post urging public to help remove scrap tires as the charity didn’t have substantial funds and time to do that.

Yorkshire Wildlife Trust expressed its gratitude to Protyre. The charity noted that it helped it to save thousands of pounds.

Protyre retail director called the dumping of over 1,000 tires ‘a terrible act of environmental vandalism’. Protyre sent its team from their Sheffield base to inspect the tires, and then collect and recycle them using services of the recycling partner of the company.
