We, RUM Alliance, seek the improvement of
the earth's environment, in both Japan and the rest of the world,
and promote and work towards the move from a competitive to a cooperative
and symbiotic society, and from a 'waste' society to a 'no waste'
society in which companies work to conserve the environment.
until now, since many motor vehicle recycling companies have been
very small-scale enterprises, each one of them has operated in the
obtaining of used cars, scrapping, and sale of parts both within
Japan and overseas. However, even if these businesses thought constructively
in regard to appropriate environmental considerations, there was
a limit to what one company could achieve on their own. Nationally,
the illegal abandonment of discarded motor vehicles and shredder
dust has continued to occur one after the other.
This trend must be discontinued. As such,
several environmentally like-minded motor vehicle recycling companies
have joined together to create the RUM Alliance (Re-use Motorization
Alliance), and are working together to pool our strengths and to
achieve a society that recycles its waste products, on a worldwide
More specifically, our members, who are scattered
all over the nation, are aiming to achieve a 'zero environmental
impact' by carrying out effective and stable re-use of all of ELV(End
of Life Vehicles) through such measures as efficiently separating
the parts and materials from used vehicles, circulating these parts
and materials effectively both within Japan and internationally,
and increasing recycling efforts.
Further, members of the RUM Alliance promote
together and tie up with local academic, business, and governmental
circles to develop methods, equipment and technologies to aid in
the disposal of used motor vehicles, in the re-use of waste products
Our members agree to the following:
1. Work to realize the achievement of a society that conserves the
environment, through aiming for the recycling of all used cars within
2. Take part in positive activities to work together towards the
resolution of issues relating to the problems of illegal abandonment
of motor vehicles.
3. Make public newly developed scrapping technology and equipment.
