The ELV was introduced to the UK in 2005 to tackle thousands of old cars that were growing to the amount of 8m tons a year.

The newer Act repealed earlier Acts and created a revised regulatory regime for metal recycling and vehicle dismantling industries in England and Wales.
When your vehicle has reached the end of its usefulness, you must get it scrapped at an authorised treatment facility (ATF). Also known as a scrapyard or breaker’s yard.
whats my scrap car worth ?
Scrap car prices fluctuate depending on the model of car, the region it’s collected in, whether it has any re-saleable parts and current market rates.
The value of your car depends on which category your vehicle is in.
