Recycling and return at Volkswagen
Is your Volkswagen about to reach its final decommissioning? As a manufacturer, we are aware of our responsibilities and will take back our products once they have reached the end of their service life. Learn more about the recycling process here as well as the legal conditions for a free-of-charge return of end-of-life vehicles and waste electrical and electronic equipment.
Sustainability is an integral part of our entire process chain, impacting the product planning, production and recycling of a vehicle. The measures contribute to environmental preservation, for example by helping conserve resources.
Measures implemented during vehicle development
As early as the development stage of your new Volkswagen, measures are taken to ensure that the vehicle can be recycled in an environmentally friendly manner once it reaches the end of its service life.
