When can I drop my car off?

With CarTakeBack, although it's helpful if you tell us when to expect you, there's no need to make an appointment. You can drop your car off at any time.

CarTakeBack recycling centres are usually open from 8:30am until 6pm Monday to Friday, and 9am until 4pm on Saturdays, however some open earlier and close later than this.

We'll show you the opening hours at each of the recycling centres in your area when you get an online quote and email these to you when you accept our quote.  You can also contact us below to check on the opening hours at your preferred recycling centre at any time.
