Who is Ecoelastika

Ecoelastika is a non-profit company, responsible for the management of
end-of-life tires (ELTs).

We are the only approved ELT co for used tires, which:

  • Organises nationwide the collection of waste tires from their withdrawal points (e.g., tire dealers, vehicle repair shops), where used tires are replaced with new ones.
  • Arranges for their transport and delivery to licenced recovery units, assuming the management cost (collection, transport, and utilisation of used tires)

In more detail:

  1. The useless tires are collected in the certified ecoelastikaspots (tire dealers, vehicle repair shops)
  2. Ecoelastika contracted transporters who operate throughout Greece collect and forward the tires to the appropriate industrial facilities, for recycling and utilisation.
  3. In the recovery units, the tires go through successive processing stages, to be used either for recycling or for energy recovery.
