Welcome to ELVES

Ever wonder what happens when you scrap your car?

ELVES is here to tell you. We have been set-up by vehicle manufacturers to improve and promote the recycling of scrap vehicles.

We have a nationwide Network of permitted scrapyards, making is easy for you to find a scrapyard to take your scrap car or small van to  try our search button above.

 

Now the small stuff: Scrap cars are End-of-Life Vehicles (ELVs). Permitted scrap yards are Authorised Treatment Facilities (ATFs). On behalf of the motor industry, and with approval under the ELV Regulations, we operate as the compliance scheme for the vehicle sector. We promote reuse of component parts and recycling of scrap vehicles. Through our Network, we monitor and record the reuse, recycling and recovery of ELVs.
