Frequently Asked Questions

Questions about recycling your airbag or seatbelt pretensioner?

We are ready to answer all your questions! These are the most frequently asked questions we hear from our customers on a regular basis.

Each airbag and seatbelt pretensioner has a unique serial number with which they are registered. When an airbag or seatbelt pretensioner is destroyed, it is recorded through this code and the automaker also knows that the airbags are out of the running. This also has to do with the pyrotechnical components contained in the airbag. By destroying airbags, there is no chance that they can be used for wrong purposes.

No, an airbag should never just be offered at an environmental site. This is because there are pyrotechnic components present in the airbag that can be dangerous if not handled properly. In most cases, you should deliver airbags and related parts to an authorized recycling company such as Airbagrecycling.

Yes, there is a specific license that companies must have to process airbags and seatbelt pretensioners. This is called the WABO permit. Airbagrecycling has this license and also has VIHB certification, which allows them to transport airbags and other pyrotechnic parts.
