By their very nature tyres are difficult to dispose of. This is because they are designed to withstand huge amounts of pressure, weight and heat from friction when you are driving along.
Although such design means that tyres do remain intact without breaking down for decades, when they do start to decompose their elements give off harmful chemicals and if in landfill can produce leachate; a harmful and potentially toxic waste liquid that infects surrounding environments and can contaminate groundwater.
The main concern with the non-compliant disposal of tyres is centred around the harmful additives used in their processing and manufacture; sulphur, lead, and zinc being three. These chemicals when un controlled and managed can result in disastrous environmental consequences as well as being potentially dangerous to human health.
