Today, TRA members account for about 80% of all the UK’s used tyre arisings, a very high percentage compared to some other priority waste streams. For those who are members there are some very clear advantages – and you can be kept abreast of every new development.
Joining the Tyre Recovery Association and our Responsible Recycler Scheme are not painless steps but we do want the process as simple and easy as possible for all those that have joined and for those who now wish to do so.
When you apply to join the TRA you will also be accredited to the Tyre Industry Federation Responsible Recycler Scheme (RRS). This is a condition of membership. The RRS is a stand-alone chartermark scheme which is intended to be a beacon of very best practice in the industry and its standards are exacting.
Joining the Tyre Recovery Association means you will have to meet exacting criteria as set out in the application form and to have been in business for a minimum of 12 months.
The TRA works closely with a number of industry bodies, government agencies and devolved administrations as well as other regulators to develop industry specific guidelines.

TRA members have access to a business support helpline which provides free telephone advice (open from 8.00 a.m. to 6.00 p.m. Monday to Friday) – and is also available online – regarding information and guidance in respect of:
- Commercial Legal matters including company law and debt recovery.
Preferential insurance, health scheme terms and credit insurance are also available via our dedicated insurance provider.
Members can make use of the TRA and the Responsible Recycler Scheme logos as well as marketing resources for the Know Tyre Waste campaign and support including company information, logo and direct link to your company website and a Postcode website search facility.
The TRA can help you substantially as a member so if you think you meet our standards, contact us via email, phone or letter and we look forward to hearing from you. Why stay on the sidelines?
