Farmers will be charged €15/tonne for the first three tonnes of tyres and a market rate of €160/tonne will apply thereafter.

IFFPG - Irish Farm Film Producers Group, Ireland’s only approved non-profit farm compliance scheme confirmed details of its farm tyre waste centres, yesterday (Tuesday, September 11th).

To avail of the service, parties must have a valid herd number, the IFFPG has stressed.

One location has been selected in each of the four Irish provinces, with details as follows:

  • Cootehill Mart - Saturday, September 29th;
  • New Ross Mart - Tuesday, October 9th;
  • Athenry Mart - Saturday, October 13th;
  • Gortdrum Mines, Monard (South Tipperary) - Saturday, October 20th.

The IFFPG has outlined that farmers will be charged €15/tonne for the first three tonnes of tyres and a market rate of €160/tonne will apply thereafter. A minimum charge of €15 will apply, according to IFFPG.

Funding

Minister Denis Naughten allocated €700,000 in funding for a number of bring-centres across the country to support the recycling of waste tyres, which are typically used to anchor silage pits.

Thomas Cooney said, “IFA has lobbied for a number of years for the introduction of a take back scheme for waste tyres, which ensures the sustainable management of old and worn tyres that can no longer be used to anchor silage pits.”

“Farmers continue to demonstrate a real willingness to recycle waste streams generated on farms. Each year thousands of tonnes of farm plastics, bale wrap and meal bags are recycled.” He concluded.
