Recycle My Ride Right: A North American first in industry led environmental management of end-of-life vehicles
Monday, August 8th 2011 9:12:24am
Two out of 3 end-of-life vehicles (ELV) generated in Ontario annually are not managed to any environmental standard whatsoever.
The Ontario Automotive Recyclers Association (OARA) is seeking endorsement of an industry led end-of-life vehicles environmental management system by Ontario's political parties. The system will ensure the safe and responsible environmental management of approximately 550,000 ELV that require environmental decommissioning in Ontario each year.
Media Conference hosted by OARA explaining the new and innovative ELV Environmental Management System developed by OARA in collaboration with the Canadian Vehicle Manufacturers' Association (CVMA).
