ERJ staff report (DS)
Qilu, China – A reporter from the Qilu Evening News has published a report outlining practices in China’s small tyre recycling businesses.
The long report outlines dangerous and unsafe practices; the attempted repair of irreparably-damaged tyres; burning of tyres in the open air and other, ‘no questions asked’ practices.
The reporter worked in a Chinese-run small roadside establishment, not in a large, professional chain. There is no implication that such practices are common at the more professional end of the business.
