Responsible car recycling and car breaking in Woldingham
Used parts and materials from cars, vans, and other end-of-life vehicles can be recycled in Woldingham to significantly reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill sites.
Here at Car Scrap Surrey, we follow strict guidelines set out in The End-of-Life Vehicles Regulations 2003, where all vehicles are de-polluted before any recycling process starts. Current legislation now says that 95 per cent of any scrapped car has to be recycled and we always aim to meet or exceed this.
We will always ensure that every part of your car is recycled properly, including oils and fluids so they do not seep into the surrounding environment. With millions of cars being dismantled every year, substances such as coolant and windscreen wash could prove awful for the surrounding environment. The parts that can be salvaged from your car are then taken out before your car is crushed and put through a specialist shredder. From there, all the materials are streamlined and processed to be recycled further.
There are many ways that your car will live on in other materials. For example, the seat fabric in your car can be turned into sofas, mattresses cushions, and chairs; glass can be used as tableware, vases, or ornaments; and tyres can become new surfacings, such as surfacing for sports courts and children’s play areas.
When you come to our ATF, you can feel confident that your car is in the right hands and we will always pay the top prices for your scrap vehicle.
