Depollution guide for lorries published

The Government has launched a guide on how to depollute

vehicles weighing more than 3.5 tonnes under the End-of-Life Vehicle Regulations.

The guide aims to help breakers cash in on the substantial resale market for parts from heavy good vehicles.

The depollution process for heavy goods vehicles is completely different from that for cars and small commercial vehicles.

Each lorry must be cut according to its particular construction, and depolluted as each part becomes accessible.

Depollution Guidance for end-of-life vehicles over 3.5 tonnes is available from www.defra.gov.uk/environment/waste/topics/elvehicledir.htm.
