TRA Launches Annual Award to Honour Commitment to Recycling
A new award, to be known as the ‘TRA Responsible Retailer of the Year’, is to be presented for the very first time at the Tyre Recovery Association’s 2007 Rubber Industry Dinner on 5th October. The award will honour tyre retailers who have demonstrated consistent concern for the responsible recycling of end of life tyres.
Nominations for the award will be forwarded by TRA members to a selection panel set up by the Association. The final selection criteria will include matters such as overall appearance of the premises, availability of new tyres and retreads (RMA Green Dealer Programme) as well as a clear commitment to regulatory compliance.
Commenting on this new TRA initiative, TRA Secretary Peter Taylor said it was now clearly necessary to ‘raise the game’ on the responsible collection and handling of used tyres and to do so by publicly congratulating those tyre retailers who subscribed to tyre recycling best practice in its broadest sense.
