"End of Life Vehicle" (ELV) owners are responsible for ensuring they dispose of their End of Life vehicles (including scrap cars, coaches/buses, motorbikes, goods vehicles etc.) legally and in accordance with the 2003 ELV Directive and without causing environmental damage.
Ron Hull Jnr Ltd are licenced by the Environmental Agency as both a Carrier of Vehicle Waste and Disposer through our Authorised Treatment Facility. Vehicle disposal is free of charge (Ron Hull Jnr will even pay you scrappage) with vehicle manufacturers and importers covering all or most of the cost of this through the Car TakeBack Scheme.
Ron Hull Jnr Ltd's ELV de-pollution process ensures continuous adherence to the latest environmental legislation requirements:
The vehicle's last owner will hand over their V5C registration document, and from thereon it becomes Ron Hull Jnr Ltd's responsibility to treat the vehicle in accordance with current, relevant legislation, and to issue an official DVLA Certificate of Destruction (CoD).
Ron Hull Junior's End of Life Vehicle Depollution staff inspect all scrapped vehicles and undertake legally required identity checks (V5C and photo driving licence/passport ID checks) prior to de-registering the vehicle and accepting it.
The de-pollution and component recovery process then starts ......
Scrapped vehicles have all airbags deployed and are then stripped of their wheels and batteries and then drained of all other operational fluids (all of which is either re-used or recycled)
Waste Oil, Fuel and Brake Fluid is collected and taken to specialist processing plants for recycling
Oil Filters are sent for processing to separate the metal from the oil, with the resultant oil processed along with other waste oil and the metal recycled into new steel
Batteries are largely made of plastic (polypropylene) and lead. Casings are processed into new battery casings and lead recycled into new lead plates and other battery parts
Around 50 million waste Tyres are produced each year, with approximately 70,000 tonnes originating from ELVs. Alternative recycling ranges from incineration in cement kilns for energy recovery, re-sale of part-worn or re-treaded tyres to re-using granulated tyres in sports surfaces and road construction
The engine is then stripped from the car and sorted ready for the furnace
The engines are then placed in a furnace where all the aluminium castings are melted off, leaving pure aluminium which we then poured into ingot moulds
The aluminium ingots are then sold onto aluminium plants to recycle into new aluminium products
The burnt engine blocks (minus aluminium) are then stripped of all cogs by machine and hand
and re-sold to the iron and steel industries as furnace feed or for smelting and recycling back into steel and iron products
The rest of the car is then crushed, baled and sold to a shredding plant for re-cycling back as steel products - see our Shear Process for more information
Ron Hull Jnr ltd's effective vehicle depollution process ensures that the total recycling from every car is as follows:
Total recycled is 85%
