Action to remove tyre mountain

The more than 4,000 tonnes of  tyres that have piled up at the Latouros quarries will be transferred to the Vasilikos cement works factory following a top-level meeting at the Presidential Palace on Tuesday.

President Nicos Anastasiades led the meeting, which took place in the presence of the Finance Minister, the Deputy Agriculture Minister, the Police Chief, and other relevant top public servants.

Speaking to journalists after the meeting, the Environment Commissioner said that the funds to move the tyres have been approved.

Asked whether they will be in safe conditions at Vasilikos, she said “they will be safe and there is a licenced space to store them.”
