Drained oil filters

Following a study conducted by the MVDA on the oil content of drained and crushed oil filters, the Environment Agency agreed that they would no longer be treated as hazardous waste and could be disposed of in the car shell

consignment charge for ELVs

MVDA successfully convinced the Environment Agency that compliance with the requirement to use consignment notes for undepolluted ELVs would be much higher if the £15 charge/ note was removed

Re-use of airbags

MVDA commissioned a highly respected consultant to look objectively at the issues surrounding the reuse of airbags. The resulting report, testing equipment & training course are all now available

Shock Absorbers

Many members complained about the unnecessary destruction of perfectly reusable shock absorbers as a result of depollution. And MVDA agreed; intact shock absorbers represent a negligible pollution risk. So MVDA undertook a detailed study & sent it to Government. And now Government agrees. See the full report in the members section.
