Toyota Introduces Rewarding Recycling For End-Of-Life Vehicle Disposal

2 October 2012


  • Toyota owners offered peace-of-mind and environmentally secure process for disposing of their vehicles at the end of their useful life
  • Fair on-line valuation for vehicle take-back throughToyota centres
  • Cash free, on-line payment process
  • Vehicle recycling carried out by Toyota’s partner Autogreen to high environmental standards

Toyotas are renowned for their longevity, but when they finally reach the end of the road there is a new system for ensuring they are responsibly and efficiently disposed of, with a fair price paid to owners. Launched today, Rewarding Recycling, gives customers peace of mind and ensures that end-of-life vehicle recycling is carried out to the highest environmental standards and in line with legal requirements.

The first step for owners wanting to dispose of their Toyota is to visit where they can input their vehicle registration number and postcode, generating an instant valuation for their car. They can then select their preferred Toyota centre* for dropping off their vehicle, and at the time of the hand-over they will be given a PIN. Entering this number on-line will automatically generate payment of the agreed vehicle value by BACS to the customer’s chosen bank account, making the whole process secure and cash-less.

After being received by the Toyota centre, the vehicle will be collected for final disposal by Autogreen, which has been Toyota’s end-of-life vehicle recycling partner since 2005. Autogreen’s processes fully comply with UK and European standards and ensure that recyclable vehicle parts and materials are recovered and any waste generated is disposed of safely and responsibly.

Thomas Rosselle, Toyota Manager CSR and Environmental Affairs, said: “We’ve introduced Rewarding Recycling not only to make the job of disposing of their car simpler for customers, but also to ensure the process is done in an environmentally responsible way. Putting this system in place supports our 360-degree environmental leadership that extends all the way from initial vehicle design, through production and customer ownership through to end-of-life recycling to the highest standards.”

Rewarding Recycling means customers can organise vehicle disposal through people they can trust at the participating Toyota centres and can be sure of being paid a fair price.Toyota will also accept other makes of vehicle through the scheme, too, dealt with in just the same way.
