End of Life tyre (ELTs) or scrap tyres are a form of solid wastes emanating from the use and disposal of tyres. ELTs have become the latest menace to the environment the world over, Nigeria inclusive. Heaps of scrap tyres stockpiled or disposed of in landfills and in open dumpsites are common views in Nigeria. ELT wastes causes grave environmental pollution as well as many health problems. Open burning or landfilling is the primary mode of disposal of ELT waste in Nigeria. These methods of scrap tyre disposal have negative environmental and socio-economic impacts. The aim of this research is to bring to the fore the various green options available for waste tyre transformation and disposal adopted by foreign jurisdictions with a view to reconciling Nigerians needs (automobiles and other vehicle consumption) with the capacity of the Nigerian environment as well as the peoples to cope with the consequences of socio-economic development. This paper strongly recommends that Nigeria adopt one or more of the green options and technologies examined in the work for managing ELT waste for sustainable development.

Key Words: Environment, End of Life tyre, Waste Management, Scrap tyres, Pollution, Sustainable Development.
