We don’t just buy petrol or diesel cars either we can also handle electric and hybrid vehicles!

The history of CarTakeBack

Established in 2005 in the UK by a group of environmentally responsible shredders, the goal for CarTakeBack was to enable both vehicle manufacturers and recyclers to comply with the statutory environmental and reporting obligations, which were introduced as a result of end-of-life vehicle legislation. This initial objective then led to providing a service directly to the public for them to dispose of their old cars correctly.

The CarTakeBack network

In Australia, CarTakeBack’s network has steadily grown into an alliance of recycling centres of varying size, each responsibly recycling vehicles to high standards. There are multiple CarTakeBack scrap car recycling centres in ACT, NSW, QLD, SA, Vic and WA.
