Disposing responsibly for a greener reality
We ensure that different types of e-waste are dismantled, stored, removed, stored in appropriate channels.
As our role as an AATF,
Car Medic conducts the proper precedures of scheduled waste removal and disposal in compliance with specific rules and regulations in Akta Kualiti Alam Sekililing 1974.
In line with guidelines from the Department of Environment Malaysia, SW422 (vehicles) should be disposed by licensed automotive treatment facilities.
Frequently Asked Questions
When a vehicle is towed into Car Medic, our personnel will inspect the vehicle to check for the following matters:
- Potential oil leakages from the vehicle
- The vehicle’s overall condition: whether they have been involved in an accident
- Whether the details on the Vehicle registration Card matches with the vehicle’s chassis number. This is to verify the vehicle’s identity
- The presence of prohibited items/ dangerous goods in the vehicle. What are the prohibited items?
After this process, we will vehicle and proceed to depollute the vehicle.
The moment your car arrives at Car Medic, our operation team will remove any trace of hazardous materials such as petrol fuel, engine oil, gearbox oil, windscreen washers and coolants. Usually, this process commences in less than 3 days after your authorisation for vehicle disposal at the ATF.
Depollution is the first and most crucial step in vehicle processing, and can only be performed by an Authorised Automotive Treatment Facility [ATF] like Car Medic, as we are trained in the minimisation of environmental pollution risks.
In vehicle recycling, the dismantling process is a crucial and important step to ensure a maximised recovery rate.
Undamaged and reusable parts will first be extracted from vehicles that are cleared of hazardous waste materials, cleaned, then labelled and stored for future resale. These are called ‘green car parts’, which have been verified for being processed through environmentally sustainable procedures.
Car medic removes waste materials and disposes them properly through Department of Environment [DOE] Malaysia-approved procedures. The materials must be stored in authorised facilities for a not more than 180 days and transferred to another DOE-licensed recycling center. Through this, waste materials are materially processed to be used as raw materials such as metal instead of being disposed of irresponsibly.
- Minimising environmental impacts upon the earth.
- Accumulation of data that can help Malaysia function in a more environmentally conscious way in chemical and material processes.
Human-made climate change is the greatest threat to the population, and there needs to be transformation changes to cope with the upcoming challenges ahead.
Be part of the movement by entrusting your cars to us, so we can heal the earth, one scrap at a time.
Airbags are components that protect passengers in case of a collision. However, they pose a significant danger to handlers due to its explosive nature. Pyrotechnic devices such as airbags only take a tiny trigger to explode.
Why is it dangerous?
Airbags have sensitive detectors for impact and contain a chemical substance called sodium azide, which reacts when in contact with a spark. If an airbag is not detonated, it carries a significant threat to the handlers’ safety because of its possibility of deploying.
Why Choose Car Medic
At Car Medic, all airbags are carefully dismantled and deployed. Utilizing our high-tech equipment and detonation cabinet, airbags are safely detonated with all measurements taken to protect our operators. Once the airbags are deployed, there will be no sodium azide. If there’s no sodium azide, there will be no explosion danger.
