What responsibilities do the car makers have?

The End of Life Vehicle regulations make the car makers responsible for maintaining a scrap car recycling network which is within easy reach of people who own their brands. 

The network must be able to treat cars legally and without harm to the environment as well as meet recycling targets. All of this must be at no cost to the car's last owner.

CarTakeBack has been the official scrap car recycling partner for car makers in the UK since 2005. 

CarTakeBack makes it possible for every single owner of any of 27 different brands, to be within easy reach of a scrap car recycling centre, no matter where they live in the UK.

Not only does CarTakeBack guarantee not to charge customers as part of this service, but we go much further by finding the best price being offered by local recycling centres.

To find out how much your car is worth, simply tell us your registration and postcode.
