End of Life Vehicle Regulations

Volvo Cars is offering a free "takeback" service for End of Life Vehicles (ELVs) from 1st January 2007. This is the date at which the disposal of all qualifying ELVs – regardless of the date of a vehicle's first registration – become the responsibility of the manufacturer.

Volvo Car Ireland Limited has signed agreements with a number of Authorised Treatment Facilities around the country to provide customers with a free "takeback" service.

This service meets the EC End of Life Vehicles directive requiring manufacturers and importers to:

  • Take back vehicles that they put on the market at the end of their life ensuring that they are treated in an environmentally responsible manner
  • Meet recycling and recovery targets

All the Volvo contracted sites are fully licensed by the Department of the Environment and relevant local authority as authorised treatment facilities. They also meet additional professional quality standards for the receipt, treatment and recovery of end of life vehicles and have been appointed with immediate effect.
