TYRE POL­LU­TION

Deccan Chronicle - - Edit -

Hats off to Dec­can Chron­i­cle for high­light­ing that used tyres are be­ing dumped into In­dia from UK, USA and west­ern coun­tries and they are be­ing burnt here to ex­tract oil (Hy­der­abad im­ports toxic pol­lu­tion in form of tyres, DC, Feb. 8). When tyres are burnt harm­ful fumes are re­leased which are haz­ardous to pub­lic health. The Cen­tre and state gov­ern­ments, on one hand preach green­ery and on the other al­low peo­ple to pol­lute the en­vi­ron­ment. The Pol­lu­tion Con­trol Board must take nec­es­sary steps to en­sure that all tyre burn­ing units are closed and own­ers en­cour­aged to take up al­ter­na­tive busi­nesses.
