How to dispose of a vehicle properly
Anyone wanting to dispose of a vehicle should take it to a licensed scrap yard where it can be properly recycled and disposed of. You must ask the dismantler for a certificate of destruction. The Environment Agency (08708 506506) will have details of the nearest fully licensed dismantler to you.
