The Greater Manchester Clean Air Zone – How It Could Impact You

Climate change is a growing problem across the UK and in Greater Manchester air pollution is on the rise due to high emission vehicles travelling there. To combat this issue, Greater Manchester will have a category C clean air zone to penalise road users whose vehicles do not meet their emission standards.

This and other low emission zones in the UK have been made to push people to switch to cleaner vehicles in order to reduce air pollution and prepare road users for the banned sale of new petrol and diesel cars in 2030.

To ensure that road users can travel through its clean air zone, Greater Manchester has received government funding to help people and businesses transition to low emission vehicles as quickly as possible.

Due to the pressure to switch to electric vehicles, it can be hard to know what to do with old petrol and diesel cars in Manchester.

Luckily, Scrap Local’s reliable agents can collect all kinds of scrap cars in Manchester including those which fail to meet the latest emission standards.

Scrap Local has a large network of Authorised Treatment Facilities (ATFs) and works alongside licensed waste carriers to make sure that scrap cars in Manchester are removed and crushed safely.

If you’re looking to scrap your high emission car, then why not submit an enquiry to Scrap Local’s Mancunian vehicle recyclers via our form.

We’re proud to help customers scrap cars in Manchester for the best prices and without any hassle.
