Land Rover has established a comprehensive plan to meet End of Life Vehicle (ELV) legislation within the European Union.
The ELV directive requires motor vehicle manufacturers and importers to take back vehicles (regardless of the date of a vehicle´s first registration) that they put on the market at the end of their life, ensuring that they are treated in an environmentally responsible manner.
The end of life vehicle regulations
- ´Takeback´ is free of charge to the last registered holder or keeper and applies to all passenger vehicles with up to nine seats and up to a permissible total weight of 3.5 tonnes.
- Vehicles must be delivered to a manufacturer's appointed free takeback facility.
- The vehicle must be complete, containing the essential components of the vehicle including engine, transmission, coachwork, wheels and catalyst (where fitted).
- The vehicle must be free from additional waste (such as garden/household waste, additional tyres etc).
- The owner will be required to prove that they have the right to dispose of the vehicle before a certificate of destruction is issued.
All the contracted sites are fully licensed by the Environment Agency as authorised treatment facilities. They also meet additional Land Rover professional quality standards for the receipt, treatment and recovery of end of life vehicles and have been appointed with immediate effect.
