This lovely load of tyres is on its way to my crofts, to (hopefully) provide some shelter for my livestock. I have flat open crofts, with zero shelter and have decided to try something different.
On this trailer are 30 bales of tyres, weighing over 20 tonnes, to be spread out amongst the crofts that I have and use. This will provide shelter for the animals and also not be blown away like sheets of corrugated iron!
I applied to SEPA for a Waste Exemption Licence and received the bales free of charge from the council. I think the council get a landfill tax rebate, as the bales are diverted from landfill and put to a good use. Basically everyone wins!
They are being dropped off tonight and placed on the crofts tomorrow.
