Auto Recyclers Looking to National Program for EOLVâ€™s
Automotive Recyclers of Canada (ARC) is calling for a national approach to the environmental management of end-of-life vehicles (ELVs) in Canada.
In a submission to the Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment, ARC notes that although ELV processors are subject to a number of provincial and federal requirements, ELV management practices are highly variable.
â€œThe lack of common processing standards for ELVs is significant,â€ the ARC submission states. â€œWhile used parts and scrap metal values are driving high recycling rates, ELVs also include a number of substances of concerns that incur costs when properly removed.
