End-of-life vehicle - Disposal


Since 1 January 2007, last owners of passenger cars and light commercial vehicles (i.e. vehicles transporting goods up to 3.5 tonnes) have the possibility to return their end-of-life cars that they wish to dispose of to the manufacturer or importer free of charge. They are obliged to take back the end-of-life vehicles and must set up a nationwide 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 definitive decommissioning are excluded from the free take-back.

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

If you want to have your disused vehicle permanently withdrawn from circulation, you must leave it to a recognised collection point, a recognised take-back point or a recognised dismantling company for disposal. There you will receive a certificate of recycling, which you submit 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 from your district or city administration as well as on the Internet on the pages of the manufacturers or from the Joint Office for End-of-Life Vehicles (GESA).
