A & C Auto Salvage are an Authorised Treatment Facility and that have developed careful step by step procedures to ensure the correct disposal of your vehicles to ensure that you comply with your responsibility with both environmental and vehicle legislation.
Remove Hazardous Liquids
All car batteries are removed, cleaned and tested, if they are in good working order they will be sold for reuse the rest are stored safely until ready to be collected for recycling.
Tyre & Wheel Removal
The tyres are removed from the wheels and stored for recycling.The steel or aluminium rims are remelted. We remove any remaining tyres from the vehicle, some tyres aren't very worn and can be re-used on another vehicle. We perform rigourous tests and measurements to make sure the tyres are safe.
Any worn or damaged tyres are stored and shipped to a specialist handler for disposal
Remove Reusable Engine Parts
Any parts that are useable are removed and prepared for resale. The engine and gearbox are removed from the vehicle assessed for reuse or recycling.
The vehicle is processed into a compact rectangular bale and the scrapped metal is then collected and will be recycled.
