Safe Handling of Electric and Hybrid Vehicles - New video released!
ELVES delivered its first set of Safe Handling of Electric and Hybrid Vehicle training in September 2019. The training was very well received by those who participated.
You can find out more about what the training is about and why we encourage all ATFs to sign up to future sessions in the video below.
The next set of training days will be held at the end of January.

ELVES are delighted to announce the next set of training sessions on the Safe Handling of Electric and Hybrid Vehicles.
Come see Hughie our Heinkel! Find out about car recycling and enjoy some of the best acts of the '80's live in Killarney this December!

ELVES hosted three Safe Handling of Electric and Hybrid Vehicle training sessions last week in Cork, Monaghan and Kildare. Congratulations to all the participants who received their certificate.
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 was out and about in Cork and more!
We are delighted to announce, the winning name for our Heinkel.
Over the last few weeks, a shortlist of four names – Hannah, Helen, Hughie, Heinrich have been battling it out on Facebook to be chosen as the name for our Heinkel.
Following two semi-finals, and a final run off between Hannah and Hughie, we can announce that the official name for our Heinkel is Hughie.
ELVES will be out and about this summer at events with Hughie. Do come and say hello if you see us!
If you have come to visit ELVES when we are out and about at events over the summer, you may have met our Heinkel. Built in 1961 in Dundalk, our Heinkel plays a key role at ELVES. As well as featuring on our website, the Heinkel creates a lot of interest at events enabling us to talk to a wide range of people about car recycling and the ELVES network of permitted scrapyards (not that we would ever recycle the Heinkel!).
Still young at 58 years old, we decided it was about time we gave the car a name. So in the run up to Easter we a running a competition on our Facebook page to name the Heinkel. Over the next fortnight we are running two semi finals to pick the two names that will make it to the final.

ELVES is about to turn 2! As we come to the end of our second year as the compliance scheme for End-Of-Life Vehicles in Ireland, we thought we would take this opportunity to reflect on what we have achieved to date.
