Disposing of end-of-life vehicles


Since 1 January 2007, last holders of passenger cars and light commercial vehicles (i.e. vehicles for the carriage of goods up to 3.5 tonnes) have been able to return their end-of-life cars they wish to dispose of to the manufacturer or importer free of charge. They are obliged to take back end-of-life vehicles and must set up a comprehensive take-back system themselves or through commissioned third parties. End-of-life vehicles from which essential parts or components or electronic control units have been removed and which were not registered in the European Union at least 1 month before the final decommissioning are exempt from free take-back.

If a vehicle is finally immobilized and disposed of, the certified end-of-life vehicle recycling company must submit a certificate of destruction to the vehicle registration authority.

If you want to have your disused vehicle permanently withdrawn from circulation, you must leave it for disposal at a recognised collection point, a recognised collection point or a recognised dismantling company. There you will receive a certificate of destruction, which you present to the vehicle registration office for deregistration.
Addresses of companies in your area can be obtained, for example, from the motor vehicle guild, at the automobile clubs and at your district or city administration as well as on the Internet on the pages of the manufacturers or at the Joint Office for End-of-Life Vehicles (GESA).
