What Was The Programme About?

Car Pound Cops: Give Me My Car Back is a documentary which takes viewers behind the scenes to see what happens to nuisance vehicles in the UK.

Following numerous recovery crews and scrap yards, Channel 5 shows the ins and outs of getting rid of nuisance vehicles such as:

  • Abandoned cars and vans
  • Untaxed vehicles
  • Cars under criminal investigation 
  • Obstructive parking
  • Breakdowns

Scrap Local’s founder, Martin Handley, starred in episode 2 and was filmed on the site of one of our approved partners in Sheffield, Walter Heselwood Metals.

Why Did Scrap Local Take Part?

We were approached by the television crew behind this innovative project to discuss this issue due to our experience and expertise in vehicle recycling.

Moreover, Scrap Local values honesty and clarity in the scrap metal industry and were happy to educate people about what we do to ensure that vehicles are removed safely throughout the UK.

We get thousands of enquiries each month from people looking to scrap their vehicles. It’s a wonder sometimes how there’s so many vehicles still on the road with the amount of vehicles we get through the network.
