ONE TO MAKE YOU CHUCKLE!

03/10/2018

You'll know that the Environment Agency is increasingly looking at vehicle dismantlers on ebay in the UK. They now frequently contact ebay sellers that they suspect maybe illegal car breakers. Earlier this week they sent this message out to one such ebay seller: "Dear Sir/Madam, I'm contacting you from the Environment Agency. It has been brought to our attention that you are advertising the sale of a large number of used vehicle parts via eBay. You also state you are a vehicle dismantler. Vehicle dismantling is a waste management activity that requires an environmental permit and our records indicate that you do not hold such an authorisation at your advertised eBay business address. Please would you provide the name of the Authorised Treatment Facility(s) from where you source the used parts that you are selling. You may also wish to include this information on your eBay profile or website so buyers know they are purchasing from a legitimate trader. Further guidance on the breaking of vehicles can be found on the .GOV website: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/end-of-life-vehicles-elvs-guidance-for-waste-sites Yours Sincerely, Enforcement and Waste Crime Team Environment Agency (02/10/18)" They very quickly got the following response!
