As set out in the Government’s December 2018 Resources and Waste Strategy, we are committed to reforming the four existing producer responsibility schemes and to considering the introduction of extended producer responsibility to five new material streams, including tyres. Consideration of the five new streams is scheduled to take us up to 2025. Ministers have had no such recent conversations with car tyre producers.
