Snows Commercials are a registered Authorised Treatment Facility to lawfully and safely process end of life vehicles

Take Environment Issues Very Seriously

Are Firmly committed to maintaining the countryside for future generations

To Respond to the Latest Technological Changes Taking Place , we are investing heavily in State of the Art Computerised test Benches, to start and demonstrate running the modern Electronic Diesel Engine, even out of the Chassis, we have a modern large depolution building to keep a constant depolution process running.

Employ skilled trained dismantling operators.

Strive for Compliance with the Requirements of E.P.A. Annex 1 as Follows

Minimum technical requirements for storage and treatment in accordance with Article 6(1) and (3)

  1. Sites for storage (including temporary storage) of end-of-life vehicles prior to their treatment:
    1. Impermeable surfaces for appropriate areas with the provision of spillage collection facilities, decanters and cleanser-degreasers.
    2. Equipment for the treatment of water, including rainwater, in compliance with health and environmental regulations.
  2. Sites for treatment:
    1. Impermeable surfaces for appropriate areas with the provision of spillage collection facilities, decanters and cleanser-degreasers.
    2. Appropriate storage for dismantled spare parts, including impermeable storage for oil-contaminated spare parts.
    3. Appropriate containers for storage of batteries (with electrolyte naturalization on site or elsewhere), filters and PCB/PCT - containing condensers.
    4. Appropriate storage tanks for the segregated storage of end-of-Iife vehicle fluids: fuel, motor oil, gear box oil, transmission oil, hydraulic oil, cooling liquids, antifreeze, brake fluids, battery acids, air conditioning system fluids and any other fluid contained in the end-of-Iife vehicle.
    5. Equipment for the treatment of water, including rainwater, in compliance with health and environmental regulations.
    6. Appropriate storage for used tyres, including the prevention of fire hazards and excessive stockpiling.
  3. Treatment operations for depollution of end-of-life vehicles:
    1. Removal of batteries and liquefied gas tanks.
    2. Removal or naturalization of potential explosive components (e.g. air bags).
    3. Removal and separate collection and storage of fuel, motor oil, transmission oil, gear box oil, hydraulic oil, cooling liquids, antifreeze, brake fluids,air conditioning system fluids and any other fluid contained in the end-of-Iife vehicle, unless they are necessary for the reuse of the parts concerned.
  4. Treatment operations in order to promote recycling:
    1. Removal of catalysts.
    2. Removal of metal components containing copper, aluminum and magnesium if these metals are not segregated in the shredding process.
    3. Removal of tyres and large plastic components (bumpers, dash board,fluid containers, etc.).
    4. removal of glass.
  5. Storage operations are to be carried out avoiding damage to components containing fluids or to recoverable components and spare parts.
