On Friday, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published the National results for End-of-Life Vehicle (ELV) recycling for 2019, which showed that once again Ireland has both met and exceeded the 85% reuse and recycling and the 95% reuse and recovery targets for the treatment of ELVs. The results for 2019 were 87.43% reuse and recycling and 95.21% reuse and recovery.
During April and May, ELVES successfully rolled out its hybrid and electric vehicle awareness course to an additional 17 employees of Authorised Treatment Facilities (ATFs) around the country. Developed and delivered by Salvage Wire Ltd, the course was provided in a new online format to enable easy access to the training for all ATFs.
ELVES, the compliance scheme for End-of-Life Vehicles (ELVs), has launched its pilot programme of Mobile Air Conditioning (MAC) Training for Authorised Treatment Facilities (ATFs) in its Network.
Do you know how long it would take to race a Heinkel round a racetrack? We do, and we’re asking you to guess to be in with a chance to win a €100 One-4-All Gift Card. Just ‘Like’ our Facebook competition post, watch the video and pop your guess in the comments section of this post using the format 00:00 (minutes: seconds). Competition closes 1pm, Friday 30 April 2021.
Over the last fortnight, information has gone out to all ATFs in the country telling them about the new Electric ELVES training offering. Free of charge to ATFs, the training will be provided through a mix of videos, workbooks, and a live online session with the trainer Andy Latham.

In an article, published on Mywaste.ie, atfpro.co.uk and EnviroSolutions news update, ELVES highlights the successful improvements to, and take-up of, the online electronic Certificate of Destruction (eCoD) system. This has helped streamline the issuing and processing of CoDs for both ATFs and the Department of Transport. The drive to encourage take up has resulted in an enormous increase in eCoDs from just 33% in 2016 to 90% in 2020. These improvements came as a result of a concerted effort by the Waste Enforcement Regional Local Authorities (WERLAS), the Department of Transport and ELVES.

In this week's episode of the Depollution podcast, Elena Wrelton from ELVES talks ELVs and the future of car recycling.
With schools now closed for longer than expected, ELVES is running an Art Competition to help keep your kiddies entertained. Since we can’t travel at the moment, we would like your child to show us where Hughie the Heinkel should go to when it is possible to go away again. Can they tell us ‘Where is Hughie?’ going to go on an adventure? Imagine, draw and colour in around him to be in with a chance of winning a prize!
