How would you like to pick up £8,000 for scrapping your old diesel car or van? Then this article helps explain the UK’s vehicle scrappage scheme.

With diesel drivers facing growing threats from congestion charges and higher taxes because their cars cause more pollution means they’ve been handed a lucrative solution.

That’s because car manufacturers are offering thousands for your old, dirty diesel in exchange for ordering a brand new one. Don’t forget that if your vehicle doesn’t meet the criteria you can still enjoy a decent cash offer from a scrapping firm.

Among the brands offering a scrappage deal are Volkswagen, Audi, Mercedes and Mini, as well as Ford, who are offering hefty discounts of up to £8,000 for diesel cars older than seven years.

The money comes even if they are made by another carmaker and are only good enough for scrapping anyway.

Scrapping your car is worth it for a number of reasons, and we’re taking a look at some of them in our latest blog. By running through the “Four Es”, we can provide an overall summary of the various benefits to be had from using a car scrapper.

 

Environment

Scrapping your car is extremely beneficial for the environment. Recycling metal is, in general, extremely beneficial for the environment; we spoke about the environmental benefits of metal recycling in our last blog, so if you’d like a more in-depth overview of this point, head over to that page.

More specifically, though, any scrap yard must comply with environmental regulations. This legal requirement ensures that any toxic materials are properly contained and do not damage the surrounding area. In an uncontained area, an exhausted, leaking car could do a lot of damage.

Regardless of your opinions on, or your interest in, the environment, everyone’s talking about it. It’s all over the news, all over the world, and it’s almost impossible to ignore. Therefore, we thought it was important for us to address it in relation to our line of work: the scrap metal and metal recycling industries.

We’re always reminded of the environmental benefits of recycling in general, and metal recycling is no different. Below, we’ve taken a quick look at why having your unwanted metal recycled is so beneficial for the environment.

 

Sustainability

Again, you’ll almost certainly have heard that the planet is running out of … well, pretty much everything. Metal is no different. There is a finite supply of metal ore in the earth, and it’s a real strain on resources to continually dig it up. Moreover, it doesn’t do the visual appeal of the planet any favours, as the arduous

BMW

BMW named their scheme ‘Lower Emissions Allowance’. If you trade in a diesel vehicle with an emission standard of Euro 4 (EU4) or below, you can claim up to £2,000 off any BMW model with emissions of 130g/km or lower. Again, this scheme is only available until the
