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.

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.

ELVES are thrilled to announce the winners and runners-up of the 'Where is Hughie?' Kids Colouring Competition!
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!
We are delighted to announce the winners of our recent Hughie the Heinkel Halloween Colouring Competition!!!
Congratulations to our 4 prize-winners:
Category A (Jnr Infant - 2nd Class):
Category B (3rd Class to 6th Class):
A huge thank you to all the children who entered our competition, as well as the adults who submitted their entries. We received so many imaginative and deserving entries and we would like to applaud them all. It’s wonderful that there are so many children out there keeping the standard of colouring in Ireland at the very highest levels.
We are feeling generous this month at ELVES. To cheer everyone up and do our bit to support Irish retailers, we have a €100 One4All voucher to give away to one lucky competition participant. Take a look at our Facebook page to find out how to win @ELVESIreland.
As waste services, ATFs are able to operate under Level 5 restrictions. However, sites may be restricting public drop offs or implementing additional COVID related measures. If you need to dispose of a vehicle at this time, please contact your chosen ATF prior to arriving on site to both confirm any changes to opening hours and any additional COVID related procedures.
ELVES remains open for business with staff working remotely. However, please be aware that we may not be able to provide immediate service at this time due to the updated national operating restrictions on business.
Please forward queries to email@example.com and we will do our best to help.
We wish everyone well at this difficult time.
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.
The ELVES 2019 Annual Report describes a year of many successes for ELVES including, the ATF Network meeting ELV reuse, recycling and recovery targets, the expansion of the Electric ELVES Programme and the increased issuance of electronic Certificates of Destruction. 2019 was ELVES’ third year of operation, supporting End-of-Life Vehicle (ELV) processing as the compliance scheme in Ireland.
