Safe Disposal of End of Life Vehicles

End of Life Vehicles Directive

In 2005, the UK government implemented new legislation called The End of Life Vehicle (ELV) Directive. The objective of the directive is to ensure that as much of a vehicle is recycled as possible whilst ensuring that all hazardous materials are treated appropriately. The ELV Directive has set targets for the UK to ensure that, by 2006, 85% of ELVs are recovered and recycled. This target increased to 95% in 2015.

It is now the responsibility of the owner of an end of life vehicle to see that it is delivered to an authorised treatment facility where it can be depolluted prior to entering the recycling chain.

End of life vehicle recycling

Cliftongrade Ltd is a DVLA registered Authorised Treatment Facility (ATF) for the scrappage of End of Life Vehicles (ELV) .This means we have access to the DVLA (COD) system to scrap your vehicle. Only DVLA registered ATF's have the ability to do this. We operate two state-of-the-art Seda depollution rigs for the complete safe removal of all waste oils and fluids from end of life vehicles. The waste oils and fluids that are drained from end of life vehicles are then collected by specialist firms to be recycled. 

We also offer a reliable collection service for your scrap vehicle. The vehicle will need to be easily accessible.

DVLA Certificate of Destruction

It is a legal requirement that all scrap cars must be issued with 
a DVLA Certificate of Destruction (COD) by an ATF approved by the DVLA. Being an ATF site, we can submit your vehicle details to the DVLA and print out a Certificate of Destruction for you, proof that your vehicle has been successfully scrapped. Please make sure you bring along your vehicle registration document (V5) when presenting a vehicle for scrap. We will retain your vehicle registration document, (V5) upon issuing the certificate.
