Charles Trent has been at the forefront of increasing the level of professionalism and environmental performance in the dismantling industry over the last 30 years.
At Charles Trent we aim to reduce pollution and waste associated with vehicles and ensure that End of Life vehicles (ELV) are disposed of legally and responsibly, in accordance with European Union legislation.

In order to increase the level of scrap car recycling, Charles Trent joined forces with Car Take Back. Under this agreement, Charles Trent can guarantee that it can recycle 85% of each car, compared to the industry norm of 75-80%. We continue to make progress in this area and will achieve the new level of 95% before the target date of 2015.
