It should be noted that in Jelgava four tires can be handed over for free only during the campaign. In the rest of the time, at the separated waste collection areas, they are accepted for a fee, depending on the tire diameter, and the fee for handing over one tire can be from 1.90 to 2.70 euros. Additional information on waste disposal is available on the website www.zemgaleseko.lv or at your waste manager.
All types of tires are environmentally harmful waste. Tires decompose in the natural environment for more than 100 years, and during this time various harmful substances can be released into nature. In addition, a fine may be imposed for disposing of used tires. It is therefore essential that they be recycled.
