About recycling

A vehicle can only be deregistered when it's confirmed that it has been delivered to a recycling company. This applies to all vehicles, whether the owner is entitled to a recycling fee refund or not.

As a recycling fee has never been payed for vehicles registered before 1980, a refund is not applicable.
