This will include all of its brands sold in the UK including Ford, Jaguar, Land Rover, Volvo, Aston Martin and Mazda from January 1 2007.
Ford and Cartakeback, which is a subsidiary of the UK Shredders consortium, are working in partnership to develop a network of take back and treatment facilities throughout the UK.
The facilities will be available to the last owner of a qualifying vehicle that is destined for car heaven or hell.
Ford of Britain chairman Roger Putnam said: "When the full network is established, a hotline number and dedicated website will advise owners of the qualifying conditions for free take back and the location of the nearest facility where they can present their vehicle."
The first Ford-appointed site to work in the ELV take back network is GW & G Bridges of Crawley, Sussex.
