Auto Recycling Group is a global company specialising in the recycling of End Of Live (ELV) vehicles
both in Australia and worldwide. We are the parent to a range of other ARG brands, including Total
Auto Recycling, Auto Recycling Services India, Auto Recycling Services China, Auto Recycling Services
Australia and Jolly’s Auto Parts. We are also the heart of the It Matters To You (#imtu) social
movement and campaign, which aims to bring awareness to the damage that inappropriate disposal
of ELV’s is causing to our environment.
The mission of Auto Recycling Group is to create a central home and consistent standard for auto
recycling business worldwide. We want to be a recognised brand, and our business practices to be
held accountable for ensuring our social responsibility to our community and to the environment.
We have recognised a worrying trend in the auto wrecking and recycling industry of unsavoury
processes and methods which are having a detrimental impact on our environment. The production
of vehicles is one of the largest manufacturing sectors on earth, but there has been very little
consideration of what happens to the car when it is no longer of use. Vehicles are complex to
recycle, as they are made up of many different materials. They require an extensive and expensive
process to be broken down and sorted properly. Others in the industry have traditionally cut corners
to save on outgoings, and many do not have the capital to invest in the required machinery and
equipment to appropriately process all materials.
Auto Recycling Group has grown from 'All Jap Auto Parts' in 1984, to what it is has become now, an
industry leader in auto recycling worldwide.
'All Jap Auto Parts' specialised in second-hand parts for Japanese makes and models. The year 2000
saw the business transform into 'Jolly Rodgers', a self-service pick-a-part yard for all makes and
models. In 2005, Total Auto Recyclers grew from the need for car depollution and expanded even
further over the next 10 years. In 2010, 'Jolly Rodgers' evolved into 'Jolly's' with an even greater
emphasis on reusing and recycling car parts. The last two years have seen the businesses work
together under the Auto Recycling Group framework expanding into regional Victoria and overseas
in India and China.
