Recycle week 25th September - 1st October 2017

Recycle your car for money

Years ago you used to have to pay to have a car recycled, nowadays you can get paid to recycle your car! With CarTakeBack you can find out the value of your car instantly online, so there's no time wasted phoning round different car recyclers. You'll be shown the best prices on offer for your car from local car recycling centres - it's definitely worth recycling if you get money to do it!

Recycle your car for the environment

As well as it being worth recycling your car because you get paid, there's also the environmental benefits. It's worth recycling a car because you'll be taking what is likely a polluting vehicle off the road, meaning less emissions in our air. By recycling a car with CarTakeBack at an authorised scrap car recycling centre, you'll be ensuring that your car is recycled in line with the law. A massive 95% of your car will be responsibly recycled!

Recycle your car to make a new car

When your old car is recycled, parts can be reused to keep other cars on the roads and the glass, metal and plastics can be used to make many other products. Car makers are even developing methods to make new cars from old cars. So when you recycle your car it could become a car you own in the future, it's definitely worth recycling!

We think it's worth recycling, so when you have a car to recycle, whether it's this Recycle Week or any time in the future, we can help.
