How do ELV’s harm the environment?
The number of vehicles on the roads continues to increase and with it, the potential environmental impact associated with the scrapping of ELV’s. It is essential that they are stored, treated, recycled or disposed of properly. For example, it takes only a small amount of waste oil or fuel to contaminate a large volume of water or to pollute soil. Batteries, brake fluids, antifreeze, mercury-containing switches and tyres are among other components that can pollute the environment or harm human health.
What can you do to help?
• Recycle your old oil and batteries
• Choose a more fuel efficient vehicle
• Buy retread tyres.
• Look out for products made from scrapped tyres
• If your car is no longer in working order, take it to a registered scrapyard.
