MG Rover has signed a deal with Cartakeback to provide a collection network for End-of-Life Vehicles (ELVs).
Cartakeback, a subsidiary of the shredders consortium, will organise a UK network of Approved Treatment Facilities (ATFs) for MG and Rover owners to dispose of their bangers in accordance with the ELV regulations.
Owners of MG Rover "legacy brands" such as Austin, Morris and Triumph will also be able to take their clapped-out classics to ATFs.
Under the ELV Regulations 2005, car manufacturers must register an own-brand take-back network by the end of August, so that vehicles can be depolluted before being recycled.
The regulations also state that by January 1 2007, the take back service must be free of charge.
MG Rover is the second major manufacturer to sign up to the Cartakeback scheme.
Last week Ford announced that all of its UK brands, which include Jaguar, Land Rover and Volvo, can be disposed of at ATFs in the Cartakeback network.
