The Ins and Outs To Scrapping Your Car In Scotland!

Scotland is the second largest country in the United Kingdom and has a population of approximately 5.46 million.

A large share of the Scottish population lives in the Central Belt of the country. This area includes major cities like Glasgow, which has a population of over 633, 000, and the capital city of Edinburgh, which has a population of 524, 900.

Scotland receives a high amount of traffic and in 2019 alone over 30.0 billion vehicle miles were travelled here. The number of motor vehicles registered in Scotland is at an all-time high at 3.0 million! Additionally, the distance driven by motor vehicles on Scotland’s roads has increased by 8% over the past five years.

Understandably, Scrap Local receives regular enquiries from road users looking to remove their vehicles for scrap in Scotland.

Scrap Local is proud to work with trusted car scrap yards in Scotland and serves customers across key areas like Dundee, Aberdeen and Glasgow. Our licensed waste carriers can reach areas along the A9, M77 and M8 motorway corridors to collect cars for free.

Climate Change’s Impact On Scottish Transport

Overall, Scotland’s transport emissions account for 8.6% of the UK total. Worryingly, Scotland has scored above the normal amount for transport emissions in the UK. 13.1% of Scotland’s bus emissions are above a proportionate share of the UK total and domestic transport accounts for 21%.

This presents a growing concern for major cities in Scotland. Recently, there has been a push for more investment in Clean Air Zones under the Scottish Climate Committee in order to reduce the amount of high emission vehicles on Scotland’s roads.

Key policies in the Climate Change (Emissions Reduction Targets) Act 2019  include making it easier for people to walk, cycle, and use sustainable forms of public transport across Scotland.

Additionally, there has been more emphasis on ensuring that the electric vehicle charging infrastructure is in place to eliminate the need to buy petrol or diesel cars in Scotland by 2032 at the latest.

Due to the recent focus on reducing pollution levels from diesel cars, lorries and taxis across Scotland, many motorists are seeking additional support, guidance and assurance when scrapping their old cars.

Thankfully, Scrap Local works with Authorised Treatment Facilities (ATFs) and licensed Waste Carriers who ensure that vehicles are de-polluted and scrapped in accordance with strict guidelines throughout Scotland.

If you need to scrap your high emission vehicle in Scotland, then why not make an enquiry with our expert team!
