In an article, published on, 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.

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.
