Responsible Car Recycling

There are laws in place to reduce the impact that scrap cars can have on the environment. All CarTakeBack branches in Ireland are licensed by the authorities to recycle scrap cars.

CarTakeBack are passionate about recycling! To look after the environment, our scrap car recycling centres use the latest methods to safely remove harmful materials from your car, then dispose of them in the safest way. Making sure that the waste oils, tyres and batteries are disposed of correctly, they would cause serious environmental damage if they ended up down the drain or in landfill. CarTakeBack recycling centres reuse parts when possible and recycle as much of your scrap car as they can - the metal, glass and plastics are separated for recycling.

Your car could be recycled into any number of new products - who knows, your old banger could become a new Bentley!
