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.
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.
