All vehicles brought in to our facility go through our environmentally friendly process. Details of the depollution stages of vehicles recycling are explained in the scrap your vehicle tab. Oristown Auto Recyclers Ltd are also in compliance with the 95% ELV recovery rates as set by the European and Irish Environmental Agencies.

The process of disposing an ELV

On arrival of the vehicle the owner must have the log book registration and identification. Once that is approved the owner will receive a Certificate of Destruction (CoD) – this is deregistration of the vehicle (vehicle is no longer the responsibility of the registered owner). The payment for vehicle is based on its weight which is weighed at our facility on the weighbridge.

The second step is the depollution of the vehicle. All hazardous fluids are removed and recycled from the vehicle e.g. oil, fuel, brake fluid and coolant.

The next step is then the removal of all hazardous materials from the car. This involves the dismantling of parts such as tires, batteries, harmful plastics and gases which are sent to specialist recycling facilities. Other metals allocated on the vehicle are also separated e.g. copper and aluminium.

Once the vehicle has been successfully depolluted the remainder of the vehicle is then crushed in the baler. The vehicle is baled into a small rectangular size and chopped if necessary. This is then sent away to be reused in creating more useable materials.

Oristown Auto Recyclers Ltd is committed to ensuring compliance with existing and future environmental legislation. The company continues to maintain its high standard in environmental policies with frequent health and safety reviews and updating fundamental processes through equipment, machinery and practices such as recycling all materials where practical including waste fluids and oils.

This is focussed on enhancing the company’s sustainability and improving carbon footprint.

Oristown Auto Recyclers ltd recognises its responsibility in protecting the environment and surrounding ecosystems. Annual noise and air pollution tests are carried out to ensure that the company’s operations minimally impact the environment.
