END OF LIFE VEHICLES
Seaforde Scrap Metals is a registered
ATF (Authorised Treatment Facility) which means we have
been approved by NIEA to safely recycle ELVs
(End of Life Vehicles)
In 2004, we updated our existing rig
to a Single Station Seda Depolluting Rig and can offer
a full depolluting and recycling service for End of Life
We process thousands of vehicles
per year which range from cars which are still driveable
to vehicles which have been burnt out, flattened or have
been lying in a field for years. We issue DVA Certificates
of Destruction for each ELV where relevant details are
The Depollution Process
The operator sets a vehicle on the Seda
Single Fixed Station and removes the battery. This is
set aside for moving to the battery storage area.
All fluids are drained from the vehicle.
These fluids, oil, brake fluid, coolants etc. are sent
to a specialized company to be recycled.
The tyres are removed from the vehicle
and also sent for recycling.
Only when the battery and all fluids
have been removed from the ELV, is the vehicle then transported
by forklift truck to our Lefort Baling Plant where it
is baled ready for dispatch for further recycling.
All vehicles are crushed on site
and no vehicle is ever re-sold or put back on the public
