ELV Disposals

ELV (End of Life Vehicle) – Scrap my Car Services Disposals and Collections

When your vehicle has reached the end of the road, make sure you dispose of it legally. In fact, one of the most common scrap metal enquires we receive at GLJ Recycling is “How do I scrap my car safely, legally and quickly?”

GLJ Recycling Ltd is authorised by the DVLA and the Environment Agency in accordance with the End-of-Life Vehicles Directive (ELV) to recover, treat and recycle vehicles for both private individuals and commercial customers.

We are associated with several authorized scrap car treatment facilities, allowing us to provide our customers with an effective solution in dealing with, and disposing of, scrap cars, vans, trucks and other vehicles. This includes insurance write-offs, MOT failures and unwanted vehicles.

We can arrange the prompt collection of a single vehicle or multiple vehicles for scrap, or our customers can deliver the vehicle directly to us.

In order to verify that a vehicle has been scrapped in a lawful and environmentally sound manner, you will need a Certificate of Destruction (CoD). We can issue you with this legal document. Without proper de-registration, the previous owner of the vehicle could be fined under new laws on continuous registration.

If you do not receive a CoD within 10 days of your car being scrapped you will need to contact the DVLA to notify them that you have disposed of your vehicle.

Finally, don’t forget to claim a refund for any unused road tax and insurance.
