How to recycle cars

  • Cars are predominately made from metal which is recyclable. If your car is at the end of its life, you may find a local scrap dealer who is willing to buy it from you.

  • If your car is in a road-worthy condition, you may be able to sell it privately or trade-in when you buy a new one.

Good to know

Charity car recycling schemes such as Giveacar and Charity Car will collect your unwanted car for recycling and make a donation to your chosen charity.
