The quantity of end-of-life tyres collected for recovery increased dramatically when producer liability was introduced. Arround 16,000 tonnes of end-of-life tyres is produced, which is about 8kg per capita. In 2015, 65% of end-of-life-tyres have been recovered through material recovery and 35% through energy recovery.


The indicator shows the number of end-of-life tyres collected for recovery.

An end-of-life tyre is a car tyre that the owner cannot or will not use due to damage, wear, and other causes, and therefore discards it or plans to discard it. End-of-life tyres are waste tyres from personal vehicles, semi-trailers, lorries and mobile machinery from the group of waste with the classification number 16.01.03 in accordance with the regulation governing waste management, and other scrap tyres that are similar to car tyres in their composition. An end-of-life tyre is also a car tyre that is returned by the end user to the distributor based on a complaint concerning a defect of delivered goods (Decree on the manner, subject of and conditions for performing mandatory public utility service for the management of waste tyres, Official Gazette of the Republic of Slovenia No. 71/06).
