Waste Batteries and Accumulators Regulations
The Waste Management (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) is the Irish implementation of the European Union Waste Batteries and Accumulators Directive 2006/66/EC which came into force in 2008. This directive is designed to reduce the impact of waste batteries on the environment and increase recycling. FGA Ireland are a member of WEEE Ireland which is a Not for Profit organisation.
End of Life vehicles at Jeep
These ATF facilities are contracted to Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Ireland. FCAI is the distributor of the Jeep brand.

Jeep Ireland is committed to reducing the environmental impact at every stage of the life cycle of our vehicles. With that in mind Jeep Ireland has developed a global policy for the protection of and respect for the environment with constant improvements in the production process and the creation of products of increasing Eco-compatibility and similarly in the disposal of vehicles.

Fittingly, under the European Directive, "End-of-life Vehicle Directive" (2000/53/EG) Jeep Ireland has taken steps to ensure that vehicles that have reached the end of their life can be disposed of with minimum environmental impact.

The ELV Directive has now been transposed into Irish law and from January 2007 requires all manufacturers' and importers' to:
  • Take back qualifying* vehicles they have put on the market at the end of their useful life ensuring that they are disposed of in an environmentally responsible manner.
  • Ban the use of hazardous materials (for new cars from 3 November 2003 excluding some parts where it is essential for use) such as Lead, Mercury, Cadmium and Hexavalent Chromium.
  • To meet the re-cycling and recovery targets of 85 percent by weight in 2006 (including a maximum of 5% energy recovery) and from 2015 a re-cycling and recovery target of 95% (including a maximum of 10% energy) recovery is proposed.

*A qualifying vehicle must meet either of the following conditions:
  • A passenger vehicle with a maximum of 9 seats
  • A commercial vehicle with a maximum weight of 3.5 tonnes

The vehicle must also meet the following;
  • All significant components such as engine, gearbox, chassis, bodywork, catalytic converter, wheels and electronic control units must be present in the vehicle.
  • There must be no additional waste in the vehicle.
  • The owner/keeper of the vehicle must have the vehicle registration document or be able to supply proof of identity.

Once your vehicle has been handed over to the dismantler you will be issued with a Certificate of Destruction (CoD) which you need for the final de-registration of your car. The dismantler will then recycle and dispose of your car in an environmentally friendly way.

Jeep Ireland is currently working to expand its network of ATFs (Approved Treatment Facilities) in Ireland to ensure compliance with the Regulation and convenience for the customer.
