The TRA was formed in July 2004 and was born out of a common sense of purpose and professionalism which united its members.
A cornerstone of the body is its support for the Tyre Industry Federation’s Responsible Recycler Scheme. All TRA members are fully accredited by the scheme, which guarantees that all tyres collected, recycled or reprocessed by them are disposed of or reused in an environmentally friendly or acceptable methods.
However, markets for tyre recovery continue to grow and develop and as the EU Landfill Directive is applied right across Europe a new international dimension will evolve.
The Tyre Recovery Association has the independent ability to pursue its broader objectives at both industry and government levels, generate performance data specific to its member’s interests as well as develop stronger European links.
