Vehicle Depollution - How it Works - Scrap My Car

Environmentally Friendly

All cars and vans entering our facility are stored on impermeable surfaces. The hazardous materials contained within them are taken out within 10 days and stored safely, indeed most of them are recyclable too. We have closed drainage systems which trap every drop of water that falls on the site, and funnels it into treatment areas. Only when this process has been completed and we are certain that all oils and contaminants have been removed, is the water discharged from our site.

  • The water is checked weekly by our agents and tested by the local authorities on a regular basis.
  • Our operators endeavour to separate all recyclables during the dismantling process.
  • All goods entering and leaving the sites are weighed, quarterly reports are made to councils where End Of Life Vehicles are collected, and reports are submitted to the Environmental Protection Agency for audit on a yearly basis.
