Suzuki GB PLC has signed an agreement with network service providers Autogreen which will enable the company to comply with European Union regulations regarding the disposal of old Suzuki vehicles.
The recently enacted 'End-of-Life Vehicles [Producer Responsibility] Regulations 2005' make manufacturers responsible for establishing a nationwide take-back network for qualifying end-of-life vehicles at no cost to the final owner, and for their environmentally-friendly disposal.
By 1 January, 2006 car makers must have an operational take-back network in place, and by 1 January, 2007 they must take back all qualifying vehicles.
Autogreen has signed a comprehensive 10-year agreement with Suzuki GB to provide a full, free service for owners who eventually wish to dispose of their cars.
Autogreen is composed of professionals who have been in the vehicle dismantling and disposal business for many years. It initially has 150 approved treatment facilities with a further increase scheduled during 2005 to ensure nationwide service for final owners of Suzuki’s end-of-life vehicles throughout the UK.Published 14 October 2005
