Vehicle Scrapping (ELV)

G. Lock Scrap Metal Processors collects and recycles End-of-Life Vehicles (ELVs) throughout North Wales. We aim to provide a cost effective, environmentally sound and legislatively compliant scrap vehicle collection and recycling service to consumers, businesses and local authorities.

Customers can bring (or arrange pick-up of) end-of-life vehicles such as scrap cars, old vans and trucks to our site to get a competitive price and to make sure their vehicles are being recycled in a compliant and environmentally friendly way.

G. Lock has acted proactively by investing in state-of-the-art de-pollution technology in order to develop best practice recovery operations. Each scrap car or vehicle which arrives at our plant is fully de-polluted of all hazardous waste safely and efficiently before vehicle scrapping take place. Following de-pollution, scrap cars and vans are fragmentised and the steel material removed. Non-ferrous metal and the non-metallic “residue” is sent for further processing and refinement.

Vehcicle Scrapping – The Law

You must scrap your car at an authorised treatment facility (ATF) if its reached the end of its life and you no longer want to keep it. It can then be handled and dismantled in an environmentally friendly way. You can only get an authentic Certificate of Destruction (CoD) from an ATF. You could still be liable for traffic offence penalties or vehicle tax if you don’t have a CoD when your vehicle’s scrapped.

As an authorised ATF G. Lock Scrap Metal Processors can issue this to you on behalf of the DVLA
