ETRA represents the tyre recycling industry in Europe. The Association is always lobbying in favour of the tyre recycling sector at a European level. In some cases at a national level.
For the most part this lobbying is low profile, face to face campaigning, however, from time to time a big issue arises that needs a more open approach. ETRA has taken the decision to publicise its activity on these pages in such events.
