So you may ask “what is car recycling?” Here is the definition: A car is recycled by depolluting, dismantling, and destroying it. The process occurs at an Authorised Treatment Facility (ATF) where as much of the car is recovered as possible. Governing the process is the EU’s waste directive, which is aimed at reducing the amount of waste arising from cars that have reached their end of life.
Although your vehicle has finished its journey on the road and is considered end of life it can still have a high value to due to parts & metal that can be recycled. The scrap metal is one of the biggest components for making money out of a scrap car followed by the parts of course (engine, catalytic converter, gearbox etc.)
