Environmental Policy

EU Directives

Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations

The use of hazardous substances such as chemicals at work can put people’s health at risk. The law therefore requires employers to limit exposure to hazardous substances to prevent ill health.

Management of Health & Safety at Work Regulations

It is a essential part of any business that health and safety is managed in a controlled manner, whether the concern is small or large. The aim of these regulations is to encourage a more systematic and organised approach to dealing with health and safety in the workplace.

Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations

DSEAR puts duties on employers and the self-employed to protect people from risks to their safety from fires, explosions and similar events in the workplace, this includes members of the public who may be put at risk by work activity

European End-of-Life Vehicles Directive (2000/53/EC)

“The EC ELV Directive aims to reduce the amount of waste from vehicles (cars and vans) when they are finally scrapped. In particular, it includes tightened environmental standards for vehicle treatment sites, requires that last owners must be able to dispose of their vehicles free of charge from 2007 sets rising reuse, recycling and recovery targets and restricts the use of hazardous substances in both new vehicles and replacement vehicle parts.”


Here at Mainline Ford Dismantlers our facility operates to help minimise the environmental impact of the cars we scrap.

Our modern facilities have helped qualify as an Authorised Treatment Facility (ATF) from the Department of the Environment. These facilities include de-pollution areas, fluid storage and containment systems, purpose built facilities for maintaining targets required by the Environmental Agency and the Government in line with 2015 legislation.
