Vauxhall Motors signs long term contract with vehicle recycling company Autogreen

The contract ensures that all Vauxhall vehicles handled by Autogreen that have reached the end of their life are disposed of and recycled using the very latest, most environmentally friendly methods and meeting the legislative requirements set out in the European End-of-Life Vehicle (ELV) Directive.

Vauxhall has been working with recyclable materials (recyclates) in its vehicles since 1990 and now thanks to its Design for Recycling strategy, more than 200 recyclates are used across the range allowing it to use 45,000 tons of recycled materials in new vehicles every year. Read more »
