Tyre recycling: Redisa wins case

2013-01-31 00:00

THE Recycling and Economic Development Initiative of SA (Redisa) has welcomed a court ruling that will enable it to proceed with a national tyre recycling plan.

The implementation of the plan was suspended late last year pending the outcome of a review application by the Retail Motor Industry organisation in Gauteng.

The case was yesterday decided in favour of Redisa.

Hermann Erdmann, CEO of Redisa, said in a statement they were very pleased with the outcome of the court case which vindicated them completely.

He said court cases brought against Redisa by various players in the tyre industry had “done nothing other than cost millions in legal fees and lost man-hours and delay the implementation of waste tyre management”.

He said the costs would ultimately be borne by the public.
