Attention: California Vehicle Dismantlers and Scrap Metal RecyclersCalifornia

The End of Life Vehicles Solutions Corporation (ELVS) is a not-for-profit corporation created by the automotive industry to promote the industry’s environmental efforts.

In March of 2006, The End of Life Vehicle Solutions Corporation (ELVS), DTSC, and the State of California Auto Dismantlers Association (SCADA) agreed to create a voluntary initiative designed to collect, transport, and safely recycle mercury-containing automotive switches.

Shortly after this agreement was put in place, the National Vehicle Mercury Switch Recovery Program (NVMSRP) was formed. The NVMSRP is a voluntary agreement between the USEPA, American Iron & Steel Institute, Automotive Recycler’s Association, Ecology Center, Environmental Council of States, Environmental Defense, End of Life Vehicle Solutions, Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries, and the Steel Manufacturers Association to recover mercury switches from 2002 and older scrap vehicles before they are shredded for recycling.

In cooperation with the DTSC and the State of California Auto Dismantlers Association (SCADA), and the NVMSRP, ELVS is providing vehicle recyclers with collection buckets and paying the costs of transportation, retorting/recycling or disposal of elemental mercury from the automotive switches. ELVS also provides educational materials to promote vehicle recycling and proper management of mercury switches.
