End of Life vehicle disposal. The safe, legal and environmentally friendly way to dispose of your scrap vehicle.
End of Life Vehicles can only be disposed of at Authorised Treatment Facilities (ATFs). Metal and Waste Recycling operate a number of sites approved as Authorised Treatment Facilities for End of Life Vehicles in the Greater London area and Hertfordshire. Please phone 0208 807 4268 for advice. At these sites vehicles can be accepted. They are drained of all fluids, batteries are removed and a certificate of destruction produced. The de-polluted vehicles then go to our shredder operation where they are fragmented into small pieces. The processed material is then sorted into its different constituents - ferrous metals, various grades of non-ferrous metals, plastics, rubber, glass. A small proportion of a vehicle content still has no end use as recycled product, and this eventually goes to an energy recovery plant or landfill.
