Ślusarczyk Beata and Kot Sebastian
Abstract— Rapid development of the automotive market, apart from indisputable advantages, brings about a range of problems. One of them is an increase in the amount of worn tires which must be disposed of since they pose a significant threat to the natural environment. Therefore, in every country, there ought to operate an efficient system of reverse logistics which will allow to collect all worn tires and subject them to appropriate recovery operations. However, in practice, it turns out that the efficiency of such actions is far from ideal and the system itself copes with many problems. The present study is to signal these problems and attempt to propose their solutions.

Index Terms— Worn tires, reserve logistics, waste disposal.
