The history of CarTakeBack

Established in 2005 in the UK by a group of environmentally responsible shredders, the goal for CarTakeBack was to enable both vehicle manufacturers and recyclers to comply with the statutory environmental and reporting obligations, which were introduced as a result of end-of-life vehicle legislation. This initial objective then led to providing a service directly to the public for them to dispose of their old cars correctly.

The CarTakeBack network

In Ireland, CarTakeBack’s network has steadily grown into an alliance of recycling centres of varying size, each holding an Authorised Treatment Facility (ATF) permit in accordance with EU environmental regulations. Each site has to adhere to strict regulations, as well as investing heavily in maintaining the correct facilities and equipment to ensure the responsible recycling of vehicles.
