BENFLEET SCRAP CO - YOUR LOCAL AUTHORISED TREATMENT FACILITY
It is a legal requirement for a car to be scrapped at an Authorised Treatment Facility (ATF) such as Benfleet Scrap Co. ATFs must have a licence issued by the Environment Agency to ensure that vehicles are dismantled and recycled in an environmentally-friendly manner.
We can also provide you with an official DVLA Certificate of Destruction (CoD) so you can be 100% confident that your vehicle has been disposed of correctly and in accordance with the law.
Please note that you can only receive an authentic Certificate of Destruction from an ATF. If you don't get a CoD, you could remain liable for any road tax or traffic offence penalties incurred even after your vehicle is no longer in your possession.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
You have two ways of handing your vehicle over to Benfleet Scrap Co:
- If the car drives and is still road legal, you may drive it to one of our convenient locations across Essex.
- If your vehicle no longer runs or isn't roadworthy, we can come and collect your car completely FREE of charge. Providing your vehicle has four wheels and tyres and is able to be loaded onto our lorry, we can collect and scrap any unwanted car or van.
