The Waste Management (End of Life Vehicles) Regulations, 2006.

What is an ‘end-of-life vehicle’?

Typically, this is a passenger car or light commercial van which the registered owner wishes to dispose of.


What can I do with an ‘end-of-life vehicle’?

Owners of ‘end-of-life vehicles’ can deposit them free-of-charge at an AuthorisedTreatment Facility (ATF).

What is an ‘Authorised Treatment Facility’?

This is where end-of-life vehicles are de-polluted and dismantled in an environmentally safe manner. These facilities must meet stringent new environmental standards for the collection, storage and treatment of these vehicles. Please note that you should contact the ATF in advance to confirm that they will accept your vehicle type. Also, please note that the ‘end-of-life vehicle’ must be intact with no parts missing and must not contain any waste.


How does it work?

The registered owner must bring their vehicle to an Authorised Treatment Facility (ATF), but as mentioned above, you should check with the ATF beforehand to ensure that they will accept your vehicle type. No charge is applied by the ATF for accepting the end-of–life vehicle, but you must provide the Vehicle Registration Certificate or log book for the car.

The operator of the ATF must then issue a ‘Certificate of Destruction’ to the owner.

The ATF will then notify the Vehicle Registration Unit of the Department of the Environment, Heritage and Local Government in Shannon, Co. Clare.

The destruction of the vehicle is then noted in the records of the National Vehicle file.
