Thursday 9th may – ACE BREAKERS & the environment 🌍♻️✅

Ace Car Breakers want our customers to know that responsible eco-friendly ATF registered company, Because of growing concerns regarding the amount of pollution and waste produced during the disposal of End-of-Life Vehicles, ace Car breakers take positive and responsible steps to ensure the effects of pollution on our environment are reduced. Our workplace complies with Government legislation regarding the safe collection, depollution, dismantling, storage and destruction of ELVs.

Ace Car Breakers is a fully compliant, licensed ATF, No. EAWML10095, and is licensed/registered to transport and store hazardous waste. Ace Car Breakers is a regulated ATF (Authorised Treatment Facility) where ELVs are dismantled. We operate under an environmental permit in England and Wales (or waste management licence in Northern Ireland and Scotland) when dealing with scrap cars, vehicles and scrap metal. We must and do meet relevant standards in relation to the:
* storage and treatment of ELVs
* removal of hazardous liquids and components from ELVs (depollution)
* reuse, recycling or disposal of parts. Vehicles are regulated to limit the environmental impact of their disposal, by reducing the amount of waste created when they are scrapped. This is done through various measures of pepollution to encourage the recovery, reuse and recycling of metals, plastics and rubber.

The treatment process of a vehicle consists of removing all the hazardous materials such as oil, fuel and other fluids and disposing of them in the most environmentally safest way possible. We care about the environment and how the materials are recycled and as a result we continue to look for new methods of clean recycling. Contact us today for a FREE quote for your vehicle.

ELVs are classified as hazardous waste in England and Wales and special waste in Scotland until depolluted, and must be handled accordingly.
ATFs like us , issue certificates of destruction to confirm that individual ELVs have been processed in accordance with the regulations, at which point they are deregistered by the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency. Responsibility for enforcing the regulations is shared by the Department for the Environment, and the Office for Product Safety and Standards (Safety & Standards).
The End-of-life Vehicles Regulations 2003 and the End-of-life Vehicles Regulations 2005 are the underpinning legislation.

Friday 3rd May – Metal Merchant Cash Ban💸🚫💯

Ace Car Breakers are Kents premier End of Life vehicle Authorised treatment facility. We ensure all End of Life vehicles and scrap metals are scraped and recycled according to DVLA and Environment Agency guidelines. Due to this ace car breakers operates under the scrap metal dealers act; meaning that when dealing with scrap vehicles and scrap metal we DO NOT USE CASH.

On 1st October 2013 the government enforced a cash ban across the whole metal recycling industry in England and Wales. The scrap car and scrap metal industry is regulated in this way is a good thing for customers. This ban helps to ensure that scrap vehicles are disposed of using the most effective and safest methods, in the process reducing the viability of car theft by linking every sale to some physical, written proof. This is why – if no proof can be provided of both the money and vehicle changing hands – the transaction is incomplete in the eyes of the law and considered a criminal offence. There must always be a written record of the people, or parties, involved in the transaction and electronic proof of a transaction payment.As previously mentioned, the over-riding requirement is for payment methods to have traceability and a verifiable audit trail. As a result, a named cheque or written receipt for an electronic transfer of funds is preferable, linking payment to a readily identifiable account.To minimise the impact of this, Ace Car Breakers is offering its customer account holders a number of alternative methods of payment. To take advantage of this payment option the customer must set up an account with us. Customer accounts can be created at ace Car Breakers by giving some basic details to the team at the front office! Account holders will be issued with an Incendia payment Card which will be payed instantly on every visit, once you sign off your scrap metal receipt. This will ensure quick access to customer information and speed up waiting times at the weighbridge/ payment office. 

Going forward from the scrap metal act, we must link all scrap metal and scrap car money transfers with the customers ID.. You must bring a form of photographic identification with you if you would like to sell your scrap and set up an account.

The ID documents that we are able to accept are as follows:
Photo ID
* Valid UK photo driving licence
* Valid UK passport
* Valid UK biometric immigration document
* Valid EEA passport
* Valid EU National ID card
If your photo ID does not have a current address, it must be accompanied by:
Proof of address which must be less than 6 months old
* Bank or building society statement
* Credit or debit card statement
* Mortgage statement
* Council tax demand letter or statement
* Council rent book/Benefit book
