Cape Town - Manufacturers and producers should pay the new tyre recycling levy instead of end users, the SA National Taxi Council said on Thursday.

Spokesperson Nkululeko Buthelezi said these two parties polluted the environment and should therefore be held responsible.

He said the council was, nonetheless, fully supportive of the process of recycling tyres.

"Santaco believes that this process should be levied and that the parties within the value chain need to foot [the] said bill."

He said the most important outcomes were to improve the environment and ensure community ownership of the project through grassroots-level jobs.

Water and Environmental Affairs Minister Edna Molewa gazetted a revised tyre recycling plan and levy at the end of July.

In the gazette, she announced motorists would pay R2.30/kg on new tyres manufactured in or imported into South Africa.

The levy was meant to assist in the collection, recycling and disposal of waste tyres.
