We're the official car recycling partner to the car makers

New laws were introduced in 2005 making car makers responsible for what happens to cars of their brands when they reach the end of the road. This means that they have to provide you with a legal, environmentally friendly way to dispose of your car at the end of its life.

As the official scrap car recycling partner to the car makers, CarTakeBack has been achieving the high standards they demand for the last eleven years. Not only do we provide hundreds of scrap car recycling centres within easy reach throughout the UK, but we also offer to collect scrap cars nationwide.

Guaranteed free take-back

Scrap metal prices are currently high enough to mean that, in most areas of the country, you can still receive a payment for your old car. But, sometimes the value of the metal is so low that you'd be charged to dispose of your car elsewhere. 

CarTakeBack specialises in finding you the best deal available for your car. And when scrap metal values are low, as long as your car qualifies, we guarantee not to charge you when you drop your car off at a CarTakeBack recycling centre which has been approved to handle your make of car.
