Certificate of Destruction
It is a now a legal requirement for all scrap cars to be issued with an official DVLA Certificate of Destruction when they reach the end of their useful life.
Did you know that...
The Certificate of Destruction can only be issued by Authorized Treatment Facilities which have been approved by DVLA.
The Certificate of Destruction is the only form of document recognized by DVLA as proof that a car has been destroyed at an Authorized Treatment Facility.
If you scrap your car without obtaining an official Certificate of Destruction you could be fined by DVLA, or even worse, if your car ends up being returned to the road by an unscrupulous operator you could face prosecution if it is later used for criminal activity.

We can issue your certificate as soon as your car has arrived on-site while you wait, or we can send it to you by e-mail or post to an address of your choice.

And more recently, the introduction of the Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013 requires all Car Scrap Sydney recycling centres in Australia to be licensed by the relevant Local Authority as a scrap metal dealer. So, you can trust Car Scrap Sydney to recycle your car responsibly without any repercussions for you.
Your car will be recycled
All scrap cars are recycled to the highest standards. So your old car could be recycled into any number of new products and who knows, it may even be made into a new car! Reuse is the purest form of recycling and, on occasion, it may be more environmentally responsible for the operator to work on your car to keep it on the road a while longer.
Scrap Car Recycling
At Car Scrap Sydney, we pride ourselves on our approach to protecting the environment and actively encourage responsible disposal of scrap cars. If your car is scrapped by us it will be depolluted to the highest possible standards and you will be issued with a DVLA certificate of destruction. Reuse is the purest form of recycling and, on occasion, it may be more environmentally responsible for the operator to work on your car to keep it on the road a while longer. If this is the case the operator will help you to complete the paperwork for you to send to the DVLA to transfer responsibility for the car.
Only when cars have undergone this treatment process, can the car shells be processed at metal recycling facilities. Traditionally only the metal has been recovered due to its value, however, in order to meet the higher recycling rates required by the regulations, the glass and plastic material, which used to end up as landfill, is now separated for recycling.
Unfortunately, despite severe penalties, not all businesses have this respect for the law and continue to put our environment at risk.
