Importance of Using an Authorised Treatment Facility for Car Removal
An Authorised Treatment Facility (ATF) ensures that a company has the correct licence and complies with the rules and regulations relating to recycling vehicles. When scrapping your motor it’s important to make sure it’s being disposed of at an ATF – it’s a legal requirement to prove the scrap process is safe and done in an environmentally friendly way.
At National Scrap Car, we ensure that all vehicles are recycled ethically and in an environmentally friendly way. There are many components and materials within a vehicle that can be recycled and used again and again. Some materials will go towards the manufacturing of new vehicles, and other materials can be recycled used across other industries such as building and pharmaceutical.
