Turn to Ward when your vehicle reaches the end of the road
With an estimated average service life of just 10 years, an incredible 4 million vehicles are disposed of in the United Kingdom every single year. Recycling all that metalwork is only the beginning of the story however – in line with the latest EU directives we are now required to extract and recycle over 95% of every single vehicle, which means rubber and plastics, fabrics, cabling and chemical waste all need to be accounted for.
Responsible car recycling
Ward Recycling are a registered Vehicle De-Pollution Centre which means you can rely on us to responsibly recycle your vehicle when it reaches the end of it’s useful life. Our 10-step process for the correct disposal of vehicles ensure that you comply with your responsibility with both environmental and vehicle legislation.
We can, of course, scrap all consumer cars and vans but did you know that Ward has advanced security systems that also enable the controlled destruction of prototype and test vehicles? In fact, we’re proud to claim HM Customs and Excise and MIRA as two of our customers who regularly make use of this service.

If the vehicle is to be disposed of it must be taken to a vehicle recyclers and the DVLA notified of it’s destruction. The maximum penalty for making a false declaration by declaring SORN when the vehicle is actually used or kept on a public road is £5000 and two years imprisonment.
