Because of growing concerns regarding the amount of pollution and waste produced during the disposal of End-of-Life Vehicles, we take positive and responsible steps to ensure the effects of pollution on our environment are reduced. Our workplace complies with Government legislation regarding the safe collection, depollution, dismantling, storage and destruction of ELVs.
We want our customers to know that responsible eco-friendly ATF registered company. The treatment process of a vehicle consists of removing all the hazardous materials such as oil, fuel and other fluids and disposing of them in the most environmentally safest way possible. We care about the environment and how the materials are recycled and as a result we continue to look for new methods of clean recycling. Contact us today for a FREE quote for your vehicle.
Ace Car Breakers is a fully compliant, licensed ATF, No. EAWML10095, and is licensed/registered to transport and store hazardous waste.
Ace Car Breakers is a regulated ATF (Authorised Treatment Facility) where ELVs are dismantled. We operate under an environmental permit in England and Wales (or waste management licence in Northern Ireland and Scotland). We must and do meet relevant standards in relation to the:
* storage and treatment of ELVs
* removal of hazardous liquids and components from ELVs (depollution)
* reuse, recycling or disposal of parts
Vehicles are regulated to limit the environmental impact of their disposal, by reducing the amount of waste created when they are scrapped. This is done through various measures to encourage the recovery, reuse and recycling of metals, plastics and rubber.
ELVs are classified as hazardous waste in England and Wales and special waste in Scotland until depolluted, and must be handled accordingly.
ATFs like us , issue certificates of destruction to confirm that individual ELVs have been processed in accordance with the regulations, at which point they are deregistered by the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency
Responsibility for enforcing the regulations is shared by the Department for the Environment, and the Office for Product Safety and Standards (Safety & Standards).
The End-of-life Vehicles Regulations 2003 and the End-of-life Vehicles Regulations 2005 are the underpinning legislation.
