When Grays car scrapping takes place at an Authorised Treatment Facilities (ATF’s), there are many rules and regulations that scrap metal companies need to abide by, in order to protect the planet from hazardous waste that cars can emit when they are being disposed of. When cars come to the end of its life, we remove any materials or liquids that are harmful, such as brake fluid, left over petrol or diesel and air conditioning fluid. These substances are then separated and disposed of in a regulated and controlled environment.

You will also need to obtain a Certificate of Destruction. You can get one of these by filling out the V5C/3 (the yellow slip from your V5C), which you’ll exchange for the certificate. The final step in the process is sending the Certificate of Destruction to the DVLA.
