Tyre Recycle Statistics in EU Countries

As excerpt from the website, that it has been estimated around one billion tyres are withdrawn from use in the world each year. The corresponding figure in Europe is around 250 million tyres. Of these tyres, around 60% are reused in some way and the rest end up in landfills. As recently as 1994 the figures were almost the other way round, with over 60% of tyres ending up in landfills. Recycling has developed quickly and at the same time legislation has become more strict
