What happens when you recycle my car?

If your old car has reached the end of the road and is ready to be scrapped, it will be recycled by one of CarTakeBack's scrap car recycling centres holding an Authorised Treatment Facility permit.

It's vital to complete the necessary paperwork so that you don't get hit with a fine by DVLA. We'll do this by issuing you with an official DVLA Certificate of Destruction in exchange for the car's registration certificate.

To prevent any harm to the environment, your car will undergo a depollution process to remove any toxic substances. Any reusable parts will be recovered where possible, and the remaining materials will be recycled in order to hit the government's 95% recycling target.

And here's the best part - unlike other car donation schemes, we'll give 100% of the market value of your scrap car to your chosen charity.
