EVL License and Information

B J Car salvage follow the strict ELV (End of Life Vehicle) regulations put in place in 2003. The ELV legilisation aims to reduce the amount of waste produced from vehicles when they are scrapped and ensure that storing and treating ELV does not harm the environment.

ELV legalisation applies to cars and vans, and the treatment requirements apply to all waste motor vehicles including:

  • Three wheeled Motor Vehicles
  • Coaches
  • Buses
  • Motorcycles
  • Goods Vehicles, eg Lorries


The process in which we follow for the ELV is detailed below:

  • Batteries Removed
  • Tyres Removed
  • Airbags and Pre-tensioners Deployed

Vehicle is then connected to the depollution rig to drain down all hazardous chemicals such as:

  • Petrol/Diesel
  • Engine/Gearbox Oil
  • Airconditioning Fluid
  • Brake Fluid
  • Power Steering Fluid
  • Antifreeze
  • Screenwash

Vehicle shell is then crushed and recycled.
