Recycling High Emission Cars In Edinburgh

Air pollution is a recurring issue in major cities like Edinburgh where roads are almost always busy. Alongside its medieval castles, Edinburgh has a variety of natural landmarks like Arthur’s Seat which attract hundreds of tourists and are crucial to preserve. 

Recently, Edinburgh has taken steps to ensure that its air remains clean for the sake of preserving its environmental beauty and public health.

Similarly to Greater Manchester and London, the City of Edinburgh will be introducing a low emission zone to reduce the amount of NO2 emissions produced by petrol and diesel cars. Edinburgh’s low emission zone will encourage road users to utilise sustainable forms of public transport and transition to cleaner vehicles prior to the 2030 ban on new petrol and diesel cars in the UK. 

Vehicles which fail to meet the emission standards established by Edinburgh’s City Council and the Scottish Government will need to pay a daily fee to travel through this zone. Understandably, this has caused more people in Edinburgh to scrap their high emission vehicles with Scrap Local.

Scrap Local is proud to partner with licensed Authorised Treatment Facilities (ATFs) who de-pollute and crush old cars safely throughout Edinburgh.

We were awarded as the Most Innovative Recycling Service by the Prestige Awards and are always finding new ways to make scrapping cars a convenient and reliable process for our customers.

If you would like to have your old car removed, then feel free to submit an enquiry to Scrap Local. Our Scottish scrap yards aim to scrap cars in Edinburgh as quickly as possible and for the best prices.
