EU drivers to get their old cars scrapped for free
Between eight and nine million tonnes of waste for vehicles is generated each year in the EU annually from vehicles that have reached their end of life. The disposal scheme is aimed at recycling or re-using more that 80 percent of each vehicle. Harmful materials such as mercury and lead are also to be reduced in new models by manufacturers. Car makers have been cautious of the directive initially claiming that it would cost the industry millions of dollars and could lead to bankruptcies.
