End-of-Life Vehicle Recycling

The European Union (End-Of-Life Vehicles) Regulations 2014 came into effect on 21 June 2014 and replace the 2006 End-Of-Life Vehicles Regulations. The main purpose of the Regulations is to assist Ireland achieve its national end-of-life vehicle reuse / recycling / recovery targets set under EU Directive 2000/53/EC on end-of-life vehicles, and, places obligations on: economic operators, registered owners of vehicles, producers, owners or operators of authorised treatment facilities, etc. in order to facilitate the Directives’ implementation in Ireland.

Registered Vehicle Owner Obligations
Where the registered owner of a specified vehicle intends to discard that vehicle as waste; he, she or it shall deposit that vehicle at an authorised treatment facility (ATF), for appropriate treatment and recovery as an end-of-life vehicle.

From 1 January 2007 owners of intact end-of-life cars and vans can deposit them free-of-charge at authorised treatment facilities.
On depositing the vehicle at an ATF, the ATF owner or operator shall issue a Certificate of Destruction to the registered owner, an authorised person of a local authority or a member of An Garda Síochána.

An exception to the free take-back principle is provided where a vehicle is missing its essential components or where waste has been added to the vehicle.
