Recycling your vehicle safely

ward logo

If you have an unwanted vehicle and need to dispose of it, one of your options is to have it recycled. This can earn you a fair amount of money and is also an environmentally friendly method of disposal. As well as providing skip hire in Derbyshire, we operate a Vehicle De-Pollution Centre for the purpose of safely disposing of a vehicle, always ensuring that we work ethically and responsibly and that there is as little impact on the environment as possible.

As per the Vehicle De-Pollution Directive from the European Union in 2004, all vehicles to be recycled or destroyed need to be handled in a manner that is environmentally sensitive. This is to prevent pollutants from leaking out and causing damage to the environment. Materials such as plastics, fabrics, leathers and glass need to be recycled in a controlled manner, and all of these materials can be found in a vehicle. By using our service, you can ensure that your vehicle is dealt with responsibly, and that there is no risk of legal ramifications from improper disposal.

Our registered Vehicle De-Pollution Centre uses a ten-step process to ensure that environmental and vehicular legislations are fully adhered to. As long as the DVLA is notified of the vehicle’s destruction, then recycling can prove to be a safe means of disposal. We ensure that materials such as plastic and glass are recycled and that liquids such as petrol and oil are safely removed. The car is then shredded, the metals are sorted, and all materials are recycled wherever possible.

When you use the services of our recycling facilities, you can rest assured knowing that your vehicle is in safe hands and that all legal requirements will be fulfilled. We pride ourselves on being fully professional vehicle recyclers, with ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 registration, alongside registration with Constructionline and accreditation with the Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme. Whether you need us to get rid of an unwanted car for you or you require affordable skip hire in Derbyshire, we are the team you can trust.
