Responsible car recycling

To look after the environment, we use the latest methods to safely remove all harmful materials from your car, then dispose of them in the safest way. We reuse and recycle as much of your damaged or scrap car as possible.

With CarTakeBack you can be sure that the waste oils, tyres and batteries will be disposed of correctly.

All scrap cars are treated to remove any hazardous materials including oils, batteries and tyres, which would cause serious environmental damage if they ended up down the drain or in landfill.

Then, as much of the scrap car as possible, such as the metal, glass and plastic, is separated for recycling.
