DAF Trucks has created recycling guides for its new LF and CF series, as well as the XF105 series to encourange the recycling of plastic parts. The company says that, byh weight, Over 80 per cent of a modern DAF truck can be re-used. Of the metals used that is over 90 per cent. Of the plastic parts used, around 80 per cent are suitable for recycling. To re-use all of these parts it is necessary to identify what type of material each one is made from, which is why DAF marks all plastic truck parts with a code. Dealers and vehicle breakers can use this code to sort plastic waste for re-use. The recycling guides can be found at
