End of life vehicles are motor vehicles that fall into the category of ‘waste’ as defined by the Waste Directive.
Here at David Yarham (Salvage), we are a registered ‘Authorised Treatment Facility’(ATF) and hold a Waste Management Licence.
We are happy to offer the following services:-
• Free disposal of End of Life Vehicles including MOT failures.
• T/P accident damaged vehicles – wanted for cash
When you send a vehicle for dismantling or disposal, you will be issued with a ‘Certificate of Destruction’ - (COD) You must keep your copy of this certificate to prove that the vehicle has been disposed of correctly.
A Certificate of Destruction must contain:-
Detailed information describing the vehicle
Details of the ATF
Details of the competent issuing authority
As of 2007, producers pay all or significant part of the costs of fee take-back or no or negative value vehicles to an ATF.
Rising targets for re-use, recycling and recovery must be achieved by economic operators by January, 2006 and 2015.
The legislation also contains clear recycling and re-use targets:-
• By January 1st, 2006
85% of a vehicle’s weight is to be recycled or recovered
5% of the waste can be used as fuel
• By 2015
95% of a vehicle’s weight is to be recycled or recovered
10% of the waste can be used as fuel
You will be able to take your vehicle to an ATF free of charge providing it contains the essential components of a vehicle.
Note: Vintage vehicles do not fall within the scope of these regulations.
