What is an Authorised Treatment Facility permit?

All CarTakeBack branches have an Authorised Treatment Facility permit. This means they've been licensed by the Environment Agency in England & Wales, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency in Scotland or the Northern Ireland Environment Agency in Northern Ireland, to depollute scrap cars to standards set by DEFRA (the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs).  Only these sites are permitted to issue you with a DVLA Certificate of Destruction
