ELV (End of Life Vehicles)

In Malta around 2,500 vehicles reach their End-of-Life through collision, a 'natural' end of life (due to age), are abandoned or as a consequence of stricter road worthiness tests. End-of-life vehicles (ELVs) have the potential to release hazardous substances into the environment if they are not treated, recycled, or disposed of properly.

Tar-Robba Recycling Facility is an authorised facility (established in 2010) to accept waste motor vehicles, and are able to comply with the requirements of the ELV regulations. When an ELV is brought to the treatment facility a certificate of destruction (CoD) to the owner will be issued. At the site, trained personnel will drain and recover hazardous fluids (a process known as depollution) and materials from within the vehicle to prepare it for dismantling, recycling, reuse and recovery.
