The only company providing online quotes for all types of cars that are uneconomical to repair from all types of Scrap Cars to late Salvage Cars
According to an article on The Ecologist web site www.theecologist.org approximately 2 million cars are scrapped in the UK each year. Unfortunately, a significant number of these cars are not scrapped according to car disposal regulations. This is a cause of concern, because the impact of improper car disposal is a major environmental problem and is an issue that governments across Europe are striving to tackle. In the UK, Authorised Treatment Facilities (ATFs) should be used to depollute and recycle cars to ensure that the car disposal process produces as little waste as possible.
If you have an end of life car and need to contact a car disposal company, you may be wondering what all the fuss is about. After all, how much harm can a scrap car cause? You’d be surprised. Your scrap car contains many components that can be damaging to the environment, especially its oils and fluids, which can leak and contaminate earth and water supplies. Now imagine if your scrap car was piled with hundreds of other scrap cars, all leaking fluids – the damage soon becomes significant. There is also the threat of fire and chemical pollution, as burning tyres can be extremely difficult to extinguish.
Another major environmental impact of scrap cars relates to land fill sites. We are already extremely short of land fill space, and dumping scrap cars into the earth only compounds this problem.
