The number of tyres on my farm used for anchoring a silage pit or pits exceeded 8 waste tyres per m2. Do I have to get rid of the surplus?

YES. You need to ensure that you do not exceed 8 waste tyres per square metre of your silage pit once you move waste tyres used for anchoring silage pit cover/s. You must, however, ensure that all waste tyres are stored at all times in an manner which would not endanger human health or harm the environment, and in particular would not a. Create a risk to waters, the atmosphere, land, soil, plants or animals b. Adversely affect the visual impact on the landscape c. Pose a fire risk by virtue of the manner in which the waste tyres are being stored d. Result in mixing with other waste streams (e.g. farm plastics, empty containers) when stored
