Hughie sets the pace at Mondello

Posted in Category(ies):  Company News

We could all do with some positivity at the moment and this video which ELVES shot a little while ago at Mondello Park certainly lifts the mood.  Dundalk in the 1950’s was the centre of production for the much-loved and unusual Heinkel car - petite in stature but sturdy in build. Given its tiny size it is hard to believe that the Heinkel was built as a family car at the time, but it was a car that gave its heart and soul to every journey.    

See Hughie the ELVES Heinkel give his heart and soul to a very different journey, a 'speedy' trip round the Mondello race track.

Whatever you are doing today, take a couple of minutes out of your busy day to enjoy this.

Posted in Category(ies):  Company NewsLatest News

Ireland Meets ELV Target 2018

Target Success! We are delighted to share that Ireland has met target for 2018 under the ELV Directive.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) yesterday released the draft figures for 2018 in which Ireland met and exceeded the annual 85% reuse and recycling and 95% reuse, recycling and recovery targets for End-of-Life Vehicles. This makes 2018 the first year the national targets were met since they were raised in 2015.

The ELVES Network have contributed significantly to this achievement with over 70% of CoDs processed through member ATFs. This national success follows the ELVES Network having met the higher targets in 2017. 2020 is ELVES fourth year of operation and the team look forward to continuing to have a positive impact on ELV processing in Ireland.

View the EPA draft figures here and the ELVES Press Release here.
