Waste tyre storage facilities of less than 100 tonnes: approval

A building permit is required for the storage of used tyres in a plant with a storage capacity of less than 100 tonnes.

Who should I contact?

The responsibility lies with the district, the district-free city, the large independent city and the municipality with building supervisory powers.

Which documents are required?

Documents are required. Please contact the competent authority.

What are the fees?

Fees apply.  Please contact the competent authority.

What deadlines do I have to pay attention to?

Deadlines must be observed. Please contact the competent authority.

What else should I know?

Companies that store waste have a special duty of care regarding the whereabouts of their waste. Among other things, these may only be handed over to recyclers who are entitled to accept such waste. The acceptance of used tyres and the delivery must be documented in a register in accordance with § 24 of the Ordinance on Verification of the Disposal of Waste (NachwV). In addition to the basic data of the storage of used tyres, the registers must contain the quantity of waste and the date of take-over for each batch accepted, as well as the person taking charge for each batch delivered. If the storage capacity is 100 t or more, an immission control permit is required.
