Dear motoring.

I have a scrap car that I want to get rid of. Could you tell me where I can find the nearest scrap yard that could take it? The car is in Buncrana. I would like to think that the car would get recycled properly without adding to the pollution problem. Do you know anything about the End of Life Vehicle regulations that have been introduced as well? Thanks DG by e-mail


Mr. Daniel Lynch, Buncrana (074) 93 61687 has both a Waste Collection Permit for the collection of scrap metal and a waste permit for the site both issued by Donegal County Council. You may be able to deliver the car to the site or have the car collected. The cost is a matter for the waste collector and you will need to enquire with them directly about that.
Other locally based permitted operators include:

Joseph McCann, Kincasslagh 074 95 43407
Thomas Monagan, Letterkenny 074 91 28008
Raymond McDaid, St. Johnston 074 91 48211
Samuel James Clarke, Raphoe 074 91 45615
Gerald Green, Letterkenny 074 91 55042

Other locally based permitted waste collectors include:

John Furey (Thorndale Recycling) 086 3021312
Terence Howard, Raphoe 074 91 45518
Erin Recyclers, Leitrim 071 98 42959
Ciaran Moyne, Kilmacrennan 074 91 39055
Seamus Strain, Milford 074 91 53163
Gerard Green, Carrigart 087 9001778

Under new End of Life Vehicle Regulations that came into force on the 1st January 07, a member of the public can bring an ELV to an Authorised Treatment Facility. This facility is to be organised by the Producers (car manufacturers/importers) and there must be at least one ATF per county. Donegal County Council has issued on permit for an ATF but the facility has not been constructed as yet. There are two further applications fro ATF's pending and a possibility of more applications. When one or more Atfs are available a member of the public may bring there ELV to the facility free of charge, they will also receive a certificate of destruction for the car. Until an ATF is available within the county, the public can continue to use any of the above permitted scrap metal operators.
