Name our Heinkel Competition

Posted in Category(ies):  Latest News

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.

How is a Car Recycled?

Posted in Category(ies):  Latest News

Before receiving our approval ELVES was busy looking at what happens to a vehicle when it is recycled in Ireland. We undertook a trial involving the recycling of 201 scrap cars and small vans. The trial looked at the recycling process, focusing on the metal that is recycled from a end-of-life vehicle.

You can read the results of the trial here in our report.
