The EPA has released the latest analysis on the 2017 ELV (End-of-Life Vehicle) data and has revealed a significant 43% increase in ELV’s treated, compared to the previous year – over 140,000 being recycled in 2017. The data also shows the country has achieved a rate of 85.9% reuse and recycling and 94.6% if you include recovery in the processing of these ELVs.
ELVES out and about in Cork and more!
ELVES are excited to be able to release our Annual Report 2017 detailing our activities during our first year of operation.
ELVES is delighted to have 2 new independent non-executive directors join the Board.
A year ago this month, ELVES started operating as the approved compliance scheme for end-of-life vehicles in Ireland. Our first year of operations has seen us make good progress on establishing an ELVES Network of permitted scrapyards (Authorised Treatment Facilities – ATFs) all over Ireland. We now have a strong geographic coverage with 48 ATFs in the Network.

ELVES is accepting membership applications from undertakings that manufacture (new) and/ or supply (used) vehicles to the first consumer (the first title holder or driver of the vehicle) in the State.
Irish Green Fleet Car 2018: Winner – Volkswagen e-Golf
Congratulations to the Volkswagen e-Golf for winning the Irish Green Fleet Car Award sponsored by ELVES at this year's Fleet Car Awards.
About the e-Golf
A facelifted Golf went on sale earlier this year, and with it came an updated version of its all-electric e-Golf. Now capable of offering a range of up to 300km compared to the previous 200km, it’s also more powerful and boasts all the renowned comforts and refinements of the regular Golf.
