Vehicles recycling specialists, Remove My Car, have launched a new system dedicated to achieving next year’s 95% recycling targets.
The new system, which will see Authorised Treatment Facilities (ATFs) incur no extra cost, will calculate shredder residue and post shredder evidence for those in its affiliate network.
The company explained that ATFs that are a part of the Remove My Car network are already benefitting from the facility to issue Certificates of Destruction (CoDs) following the company’s recent integration with the DVLA. This allows ATFs to effortlessly and quickly process CoDs for each ELV they recycle and more efficiently than the DVLA website at no extra cost. And now, the company is providing even greater benefits to ATFs as it looks to create positive change in the ELV industry.
While most ATF sites throughout the UK can confidently recycle up to 85% of an ELV using post shredder evidence, revised 95% targets from 2015 will be more difficult to achieve without significant post shredder residue contribution. This is by no means guaranteed both in terms of availability and reasonable cost. However, Remove My Car is confident that its new initiative will guarantee that the vehicles recycled through its network can meet 95% recycling targets as required through the issuing of a CoD.
Managing Director Steve Queen explained: “It is widely considered in the Industry that 95% recycling rates for ELVs is an ambitious target to achieve. We have been travelling throughout the UK, meeting with some of our ATF sites to hear how they will be affected by the new recycling targets and to discuss how we can assist. We have taken this progressive step to ensure that ATFs within our network are meeting targets and contributing to improved environmental standards. The new update will be live from January 2015 and will provide inestimable benefits to our ATF network.”
