The UK’s largest car recycling network, CarTakeBack, has taken the massive leap to launch down under, giving New Zealanders and Australians the opportunity to become cleaner, greener and richer. Here's our press release on our down under launch.

From May 2012 everyone with an old car down under can access CarTakeBack's new network of car recycling centres, that have made the pledge to uphold our high standards of customer service and recycling. This exciting new service will guarantee the public the best value for their scrap car and the reassurance that it has been recycled responsibly.

Graham Price, CarTakeBack’s Worldwide General Manager, had this to say;

“Our company was founded following the introduction of the European ‘End of Life Vehicle Directive’, which was designed to reduce the waste from scrap cars and ensure less was sent to landfill. With support from leading car manufacturers we set up CarTakeBack, which was soon established as the leading car recycling network in the UK - a position we are still proud to hold. Our success in the UK and the demand for a similar service in Australia and New Zealand, both of which have a high regard for the environment, is what led us to take the huge step of traveling half way round the world to offer the same service. It is a testament to the hard work every member of the CarTakeBack network has put into responsible recycling in the UK that we have been able to replicate the service overseas.”

Jon Norgrove, CarTakeBack Manager, based down under said;

“Hundreds of thousands of cars and light vans are scrapped in New Zealand and Australia every year. Until now there has been no simple place for the public to go to ensure they get a competitive deal for their scrap car, and the reassurance of responsible recycling. We are very excited to be delivering this innovative service across both countries, offering residents real value and peace of mind.”
