Who is an ATF?
An ATF is an Authorised Treatment Facility that has a Waste Facility Permit issued by the local authority allowing you to accept End-of-Life Vehicles.
The End of life Vehicle Environmental Scheme (elves.ie) monitor ATF’s to ensure they are meeting the environmental requirements of the ELV Regulations.
ATF’s are required to display their Waste Permit number and their Repak ELT Membership Certificate.
Tyres recorded from ATF’s will globally be added to the motor industry figures for ELV targets.
What the regulations mean for you
ATF’s must join and report to Repak ELT.
Reporting is done online by the 15th of every month for the previous month’s tyres.
You must display your Repak ELT member certificate.
Steps for joining Repak ELT
The tyre compliance scheme began on October 1st 2017. If you are not already a member you need to join to complete your compliance obligations. Below are four steps to becoming a member of Repak ELT:
- Join Repak ELT
- Complete your back reporting from October 1st 2017
- Declare your opening stock of waste tyres at start of scheme
- Display your Repak ELT membership certificate prominently in your business
Repak ELT provides a network of Repak ELT Registered Collectors for our members. These Repak ELT Registered Collectors will only collect scheme tyres from scheme members. They are prohibited from collecting waste from non-members. If you have not joined in time for the start of the scheme you will not have your waste collected by a Repak ELT Registered Collector from October 1st.
Tyres in an ATF will have had an Environmental Management Cost paid against them during their life time. This makes them eligible for collection from your facility no cost.
Choose your collector:
Repak ELT Registered Collectors are contracted to Repak ELT to collect our members tyres. You may select a collector of your choice here (link to collector list)
ATF’s are prohibited from giving tyres directly to Farmers. Farmers must register (free of charge) with Repak ELT to get tyres for their silage pits from Repak ELT Registered Collectors.
All reporting is online through our secure data portal. The reporting window is open from the 1st to the 15th of each month. Late reporting may delay the processing of your waste collection.
As an ATF you must report monthly on the below:
- The number of tyres arising from processed ELVs
- The number of ELVs processed through to COD stage
- The number of tyres sold as part-worn tyres
- The number of waste tyres collected by your Authorised Waste Collector

Your obligation for compliance is back dated to the start of the Repak ELT tyre compliance scheme (October 1st 2017) and all back reporting and fees arising will be due on registration. Only Repak ELT members will have waste collections from Repak ELT Registered Collectors. Registered Collectors are prohibited from collecting from outlets who are not members of Repak ELT.
