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 to people who own their make of car, a legal, environmentally friendly way to dispose of it, no matter where they live in the UK, and at no cost.

CarTakeBack has been the official scrap car recycling partner to the car makers since day one and has been achieving the high standards they demand for the last ten years. We continue to provide hundreds of scrap car recycling centres within easy reach throughout the UK as well as a free of charge collection service. 

Not only do we guarantee not to charge for this service, but we'll even find you the best price for your old car.As long as your car has all of its major components (including the engine, gearbox, wheels, bodywork, battery and catalytic converter (if originally fitted)), and it isn’t full of additional waste (such as litter, refuse or rubbish), we guarantee not to charge when you deliver your car to your nearest car maker approved recycling centre.  And in current market conditions, we'll even find you the best price for your old car.

If you can’t see your make of car listed, don’t worry.  We recycle all makes of car to the same high standard!
