Leadership in the Auto Recycling Industry

The world has seen many great leaders come and go, Nelson Mandella, Winston Churchill, and Martin Luther-King to name a few. In a deliberate attempt to provoke discussion and comment I ask where are the leaders in the Auto Recycling industry? By its’ nature, the auto recycling industry is fragmented, lots of small family owned and run companies that are servicing an ever growing clientele – enabled by the internet, most companies can get access to a global marketplace. There are a few organisations that endeavour to bring the industry together – The Automotive Recycling Association based in the US is one example, Auto Recycling Canada another and there are many other similar organisations around the world that offer benefits for their members, but is there one person who has the ability to speak for the whole industry? Unfortunately not, the various rules and regulations in each country mean that most national organisations can only speak for the country they represent, and their comments do not always carry enough weight to be taken seriously by other countries. There is an opportunity to make a difference through the International Round Table on Auto Recycling which is taking place in Liverpool, England, in June of this year. The event is being hosted at Hills Motors and runs in conjunction with the CARS Expo, the chairman for the event with be Steve Fletcher, the respected head of Auto Recycling Canada and seen by many as the guardian of the International Round Table. Highlights of the event will include reports from each country represented, further discussions on areas of international interest and a full teaching and training programmes that are designed to bring benefit to all delegates attending and their businesses. You can see more information at and at , both web sites feature on-line booking as well as details of accommodation, seminars and training as well as live entertainment and other events.

Unlicensed Motor Salvage Operators face fines of £5000

Motor salvage operators who do not have a license or do not keep accurate records of their transactions could face fines of up to £5,000. The warning comes after Hertsmere Borough Council licensing and environmental health officers swooped down on a car repair and salvage site, Bushey Breakers, during an all-day raid on Wednesday, April 18. Four people were arrested during the raid which involved 140 police officers, as well as representatives from the UK Border Agency, Environment Agency, the Department for Work and Pensions and HM Customs and Revenue. One man is being investigated by council officers for failing to keep complete records of vehicles that were in his possession. Gavin Burns, principal environmental health officer at the council said: "Under the Vehicles (Crime) Act 2001 and Motor Salvage Regulations Act 2002, it is a requirement by law to keep a record of the vehicle registration number, the make, model and colour of the vehicle, and the name, address and contact details of the supplier. If the vehicle is sold, the name, address and contact details of the buyer, must also be recorded. "Failure to do so is a criminal offence and carries a maximum fine of £2,500. Failure to register as a motor salvage operator carries a maximum fine of £5,000." Thanks to
