“As a long time listener to podcasts, I have always wanted to create a series of podcasts that were specific to the vehicle recycling and salvage industries and this enforced period of home working has given me the time and the enthusiasm to start, so on Tuesday 7 April ‘Depollution from Salvage Wire’ will be released.

We are bringing inspiring and interesting leaders from the global vehicle recycling and vehicle salvage industries into your phone, tablet or computer on a weekly basis. In addition, we will also include other leaders who will be able to challenge every listener and inspire the industry.

A new podcast will be released every Tuesday, and keep an eye on our social media posts so you know when a podcast has been released and how you can download them to listen.”
