When tyres are stored outdoors they pose a fire risk, and can leach toxic substances into the soil and harbour pests.
The Government is proposing a national environmental standard for the outdoor storage of tyres. The proposed standard builds on an earlier consultation in 2017.
The consultation closed on 8 April 2020.
