I do not have the scrap cars keys - are you still able to collect?

My scrap car has been stood and unused for some time and will not start/move?
This instance is not an issue at all, in fact a high percentage of cars / vehicles collected by us have long since been roadworthy, please be assured it makes no difference whether the scrap car has been stood for years, months or weeks - we shall safely uplift it for you and be able to scrap it.

You need to clear all personal contents from your scrap car and remove any tax disc that you might wish to claim back.

If you do not have the V5 then you must notify them in writing (Always recorded post).

Raw2Ks operations are focused upon lowering our waste and increasing recycling, therefore providing us with a controlled and reduced sustainability impact wherever possible. A scrap car is much greener than an abandoned car and the owner is paid for scrapping their car.

Raw2Ks fully licensed Sites store all recovered cars / vehicles on an "Impermeable surface" this means a surface or pavement constructed and maintained to a standard sufficient to prevent the transmission of liquids beyond the pavement surface.

The ELV Directive requires the provision of: appropriate storage, including impermeable storage for oil contaminated spare parts some spare parts, e.g. engines, require oil in order to preserve working surfaces. Such parts shall be appropriately segregated and stored in or on containers that are secured such that oil cannot escape from them. Oily parts shall be stored on an area with an impermeable surface and a sealed drainage system.

The ELV Directive requires: removal and separate collection and storage of fuel, motor oil, transmission oil, gearbox oil, hydraulic oil, cooling liquids, antifreeze, brake fluids, air-conditioning system fluids and any other fluid contained in the ELV, unless they are necessary for the re-use of the parts concerned, and appropriate storage tanks for the segregated storage of ELV fluids; fuel, motor oil, gearbox oil, transmission oil, hydraulic oil, cooling liquids, antifreeze, brake fluids, battery acids, air-conditioning system fluids and any other fluid contained in the ELV.

Airbags, Tyres, Catalysts, Glass and Non Ferrous Metals shall all be removed and disposed of inline with the ELV Directive.
