The first step involves a certificate of destruction being issued on your vehicle. This certificate confirms the deregistration process thus meaning the vehicle is no longer the responsibility of the registered owner.
The next step is called the ‘de-pollution’ process. This consists of the removal of all hazardous fluids such as oil, fuel, brake fluid and coolant. These fluids are then separated and sent to other specialist facilities for optimal recycling.
The final part of the de-pollution process involves the removal of all other hazardous materials such as tires, batteries and gasses which are then further recycled by specialist authorised facilities.
Once all hazardous material is removed the remainder of the vehicle is then sent to the baler where it is crushed. It is then ready to be sent for further recycling where it is shredded allowing the recovered material to be used to make new materials.
