Working with the Environment

How we try to do our bit


We aim to, whenever possible, reuse and recycle as much of the vehicle as we can to minimise the waste that ends up in land fill sites, it also saves the customer money as buying new parts can be expensive.

Also the recycling of parts requires less energy than the production of new parts which benefits the environment.

Scrap Metals

We offer great prices for your scrap metal, both ferrous and non-ferrous metals, from the General Public, Scrap Metal Merchants, Business’s and Local Trade.

Legal Requirements

Environmental legislation and regulations require all vehicles to be de-polluted and disposed of correctly, they must be drained of all harmful fluids and the hazardous and non-hazardous waste must be handled and stored correctly in an environmentally friendly manner.


Here at Michael Douglas Auto Salvage & Scrap Metals we are continuously updating our equipment for de-polluting vehicles, handling scrap metals and have some the newest and up to date available.
