Vauxhall signs long-term recycling deal with Autogreen


A long-term contract has been signed that will see Autogreen recycle end-of-life Vauxhall vehicles.

The contract ensures that all Vauxhall vehicles handled by Autogreen that have reached the end of their life are disposed of and recycled using the very latest, most environmentally friendly methods and meeting the legislative requirements set out in the European End-of-Life Vehicle (ELV) Directive.


Vauxhall has been working with recyclable materials in its vehicles since 1990 and thanks to its Design for Recycling strategy, more than 200 recyclates are used across the range allowing it to use 45,000 tonnes of recycled materials in new vehicles every year.

The company also participates in Autogreen’s Rewarding Recycling campaign, where customers can be paid for their vehicle and have it collected.

Vauxhall regulatory affairs manager Ian Allen said: “Vauxhall is delighted to continue the successful partnership with Autogreen. Not only does it ensure we are well placed to meet the End-of-Life Vehicle regulations that come into force in 2015, but it also shows our commitment to reducing waste and pollutants, conserving resources and recycling materials at every stage of the product lifecycle.”
