Recycle your vehicle for a sustainable future

Eco Friendly car recycling

Vehicle recycling is the most sustainable way to dispose of an old car, and saves your car from going to the scrap yard. Charles Trent can recycle over 95% of each car they receive by dismantling them for salvageable parts, hugely reducing wastage. 

For decades, scrapping cars has been the norm when they reach the end of their lives, but this has a very negative impact on the environment and takes up lots of landfill space. With car recycling we aim to reduce this issue. 

When you recycle your car with Little Lives UK and Charles Trent you are doing something good for the environment whilst also benefiting disadvantaged and disabled children across the UK.

How does recycling my car benefit children?

Your car donation helps to positively impact the lives of disadvantaged and disabled children in the UK. Little Lives UK aims to support children that are living with disabilities or are having to live in challenging environments due to a lack of resources, low family income, exclusion and other factors which negatively impact their lives. Our mission is to ensure that all children are given the opportunity and resources to reach their full potential in life. Through our 4 campaigns we are able to make this happen.Recycling my car benefit childrenOur ‘Someone to talk to’ campaign offers children free private counselling sessions, funded by us, which reduces the strain on the NHS and gives children faster access to mental health support.  Our ‘Technology programme’ provides devices to disadvantaged children so that they can do their homework and connect with peers. Via our ‘Sports Team Sponsorship’ we provide funding to youth sports teams to help them to purchase kits, equipment, and other related costs, so that every child can enjoy playing sports. Finally, ‘Children’s Community Support’ encompasses a wide range of projects, which gives children access to free activities and classes that will make a huge benefit to their lives. We also work with communities that are at risk of its children becoming involved with crime, gang incorporation, county-lines drug dealing and violence. The funds received from recycling your car enables us to carry on this vital work and together we can help to provide a better and brighter future for children in the UK.
