The report contains an overview of environmentally sound management options for waste tyres, the current status and regulatory framework of waste tyre collection and management in Ghana, and lessons learnt from waste tyre recycling in other countries. Finally, it derives first starting points to support an environmentally sound management system for waste tyres in Ghana.
