Automotive Recycling & The Environment
|The Canadian Auto Recyclers’ Environmental Code (CAREC)
The National Code of Practice for Automotive Recyclers (CoP) was developed in 2008 for recyclers participating in the National Vehicle Recycling Program - Retire Your Ride. Given the popularity and success of the CoP, it was decided to ensure that it should remain in use after the Retire Your Ride program ended in March 2011. Accordingly the CoP was renamed the Canadian Auto Recyclers’ Environmental Code (CAREC) and its scope expanded to cover all end-of- life vehicles (and not only vehicles targeted by the Retire Your Ride program). CAREC provides recyclers with the most relevant information and tools to prevent hazardous materials contained in end-of-life vehicles from contaminating our water, land, and air during and after the vehicle recycling process.
This guideline has been updated, in keeping with the latest regulations and policies.
CAREC is an invaluable resource for automotive recyclers, outlining best practices for the environmentally sound management of end-of-life vehicles (ELV). We encourage all auto recyclers throughout Canada to adopt the Code into their business practice.
