Let’s keep Plovdiv clean! This is where they collect old car…

An entire truck was loaded this morning with old car tires, collected at the specialized site at the base of the municipal enterprise Chistota, and drove to Vrachansko.

“We concluded a contract according to which the tires are processed in a specialized installation there using a technology that is safe for nature,” said the director of the “Ecology and Waste Management” Directorate in the Municipality of Plovdiv, Vyara Koleva.

According to her, the unregulated disposal of end-of-use car tires in and around waste containers, in green areas or in the river bed of Maritsa creates great risks for protecting the cleanliness of the environment.

“It is especially dangerous when they come across people who burn them. When burned, toxic compounds are released with a long shelf life degradation. They are easily carried by air over long distances and cause damage to both nature and people. Almost the whole city can feel the gassing from the burning of tires in “Stolipinovo”, but the municipality is determined to end this practice”, Koleva explained.

She reminded that the commercial establishments (auto repair shops and points for changing end-of-use tires) are obliged to accept the old tires from their customers free of charge and, under a contract with a licensed company, hand them over for recycling or safe processing. With the assistance of the competent institutions, the municipality has already undertaken massive checks to see if this is being followed.

Citizens who have old tires should not throw them away in non-regulated places, but hand them over to the specialized site in front of the Chistota base – 64A Dame Gruev Street, urges the Directorate of Ecology and Waste Management. Up to 6 tires are accepted at a time from private cars. The municipality assumes responsibility for the safe processing of the collected quantities.
