The De-pollution process

Every ELV (end of life car)centre must comply with the Goverment guide lines and have wamitab accreditation and be registered with the enviromental agency. 

The process

When a vehicle enters the site the registration documents are checked against the vehicles identification, and that the owner of the vehicle has photographic identification.

The vehicle is then checked to see if the waste being accepted is as described.  If the load is found to be contaminated i.e gas bottles, the load will be rejected. 

The vehicle is then placed in a area clearly marked for de-pollution, 

then the de-pollution process can begin.
