How does CarTakeBack meet the regulations?

When CarTakeBack branches recycle your car, they carefully remove all hazardous materials, such as the oils, batteries and tyres.  The metal is then separated from the other materials at sophisticated metal recycling plants.

In the past, only the metal was recovered due to its value. Today, in order to meet the higher recycling rates set by the regulations, CarTakeBack separates the glass and plastic material for recycling, instead of it going to landfill.

In 2015 recycling targets got even tougher, meaning a whopping 95% of the car must be recycled. But CarTakeBack's further investment in recycling means that our recycling centres were ahead of the game, having reached this target in 2013.
