Why Should I Scrap My Car?

Vehicle recycling can be bittersweet and evoke a mix of emotions. Your reliable (or maybe not so reliable!) companion has probably seen you through many adventures and you may be sad to have to send it to the big scrapyard in the sky. Here at Robcliffe, we make the process of scrap car recycling as simple as possible and will alleviate any concerns you may have.

As we all try to take a greener, more environmentally friendly approach to our lives, recycling is becoming the norm. Scrap car recycling is highly beneficial to the environment; the dismantling of unwanted cars yields spare parts where available and reduces the amount of waste sent to landfill. Once spare parts and hazardous materials have been removed, scrap cars are crushed and the metal is recycled. As cars typically comprise approximately 65% steel and iron this has a big impact when it comes to mining for new metal ores. Less mining is required thereby protecting our natural resources. As mining uses up more energy than recycling, you can rest assured that scrapping your car is positively beneficial to the environment.

The DVLA has confirmed that within the last week contractors has taken action against 79 cars.

You can pay for your DVLA Tax Disc online or by phone if you:

  • are the registered keeper of the vehicle and your name, address and vehicle details are up-to-date with DVLA
  • have your V11 reminder letter (V85/1 for heavy goods vehicles (HGVs)) or V5C registration certificate
  • have valid insurance
  • have an MOT, Goods Vehicle or Passenger Service Vehicle (PSV) test (if needed) – this must be valid when the tax disc starts
  • have a debit or credit card

But if taxing your car is not an issued and you want to get rid of your old motor then you may be interested in scrapping your car. You can get cash for your old card in as little as an hour! Robcliffe provides safe and legal means of scrapping your car without the hassle.

Merseyside Fire & Rescue Service

If you’ve ever wondered how fire teams work so quickly at the scene of real traffic accidents (RTAs) to free drivers in distress, it’s all down to practice – practice they can only get by physically enacting the situations.

In the case of Merseyside Fire and Rescue, that aftermath training is done courtesy of the staff at Robcliffe Roadside Assistance and authorised treatment facility for the depollution of Scrap Cars in Liverpool and end of life vehicles (ELVs), at Huyton, where vehicles are donated for the crucial skill building exercises.

The team at Robcliffe willingly give up their time to make the facilities available, arranging the ELVs simulate a range of accident scenarios that firefighters may encounter in real life, rehearsing the various cutting, extraction and lifesaving techniques needed. The ELVs are recycled in the usual way after the training sessions have been completed.

Robcliffe Site Manager Stephen said: “Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service play an invaluable part in rescuing endangered drivers, often saving lives. As we have the perfect place for them to train here at our recycling centre, we are only too happy to be able to assist them in training for this vital role.”
