Scrappage Scheme Support from CarTakeBack

CarTakeBack provides a nationwide scrap car recycling network to the public, and many business customers including vehicle manufacturers, dealerships, police forces, auction houses, garage and MOT centres. All CarTakeBack recycling centres are fully equipped and authorised to treat vehicles in accordance with strict environmental regulations, and our Customer Services Team have the knowledge and expertise to provide you with the highest standards of service.

Our Scrappage Experience

CarTakeBack have been operating a scrap car recycling network for 15 years in the UK. We have a successful history of handling vehicle scrappage on behalf of various parties, including the UK government lead scheme from 2009/10, during which our network handled 60% of the vehicles surrendered, and various vehicle manufacturer lead schemes from 2017 to date.

All vehicles scrapped with CarTakeBack are recycled in line with the government's End of Life Vehicle Regulations – meaning 95% of an end of life vehicle is recycled, recovered or reused - and we have exclusive partnerships with major vehicle manufacturers including the likes of Ford, Renault, Nissan, Peugeot Citroen and Jaguar Land Rover. We also work closely with Defra to ensure that our contracted car makers and car recycling centres comply with the law.
