09:05 Why won't the Government regulate waste tyres when that's what the sector wants?

Stakeholders in the tyre industry want more regulation so there are rules for proper storage of end-of-use tyres and an assured supply stream of them. Every year three million tyres are put into landfills, dumped or "stockpiled" on private land - but there are growing problems with the risks of the tyres leaching toxic chemicals - or catching fire. There are calls for a mandatory product stewardship scheme to replace the ad-hoc collection of fees already being implemented, with the fees being directed into directly into the tyre recycling industry. But so far the Environment Minister Nick Smith is resisting that, instead calling for ideas on viable recycling options - but stakeholders say more action is needed.

Adele Rose project-managed the Tyrewise programme which has been trying to find industry-led solutions to the the waste tyre programme.

Patrick Lynch is an Investigations Manager at Waikato Regional Council which deals with a lot of waste tyre problems.
