Environmental responsibility is a major part of the business philosophy of Jaguar, as it is one of our core brand values. We aim to produce as economical and clean a car as possible. This policy considers the wider environment and producing recyclable vehicles in a pollution free production process. Every Jaguar is designed to be at least 85% recyclable.
The Waste Management (End-of-Life Vehicles) Regulations 2006 came into operation on the 8th June 2006. These Regulations are designed to implement the EU Directive on end-of-life vehicles in Ireland.
Every year, end of life vehicles generate between 8 and 9 million tonnes of waste in the Community which should be managed correctly. In 1997, the European Commission adopted a Proposal for a Directive which aims at making vehicle dismantling and recycling more environmentally friendly, sets clear quantified targets for reuse, recycling and recovery of vehicles and their components and pushes producers to manufacture new vehicles also with a view to their recyclability.
All Jaguar vehicles can be given back by their owners to Jaguar Ireland´s Authorised Treatment Centres free of charge as long as they fulfill the following conditions:
- The vehicle has up to 9 seats or is a Light Commercial Van upto 3.5 tonnes.
- The vehicle was finally registered in Ireland.
- Essential parts or components are not missing.
- The vehicle doesn´t contain any non-automotive waste.
- The original vehicle papers have been handed over together with the vehicle.
Hand back your end of life vehicle to our Authorised Treatment Centres and they will give you a Certificate of Destruction (CoD), the paperwork you need to de-register your car. Now you can leave safe in the knowledge that your old car will be disposed of in the most environmentally friendly way.
