Toyota Scrappage Scheme Info

At Vantage Toyota, you can benefit from huge savings on a new Toyota with the Toyota Scrappage Scheme if your car is more than 7 years old. Plus, there’s no need to worry about your old car as Toyota will responsibly recycle it and will help you make the move to a cleaner, more efficient drive.

Every year, two million cars are scrapped in the UK creating huge logistical and environmental challenges. Toyota aims to address this issue with innovative thinking and the continued development of manufacturing and recycling processes, cutting waste while conserving precious raw materials. Toyota and their recycling partner Rewarding Recycling are encouraging customers to recycle responsibly to ensure that plastics, engine oils and metals can be handled and reused cleanly and safely. The best way to prevent the new mining of metals and other mineral resources is to recycle the existing ones. Not only can the metals in your car be recycled and used again in the production of new vehicles, but there’s also the added benefit of limited toxicity. Scrapping your car now means that you get to help the environment whilst you do it.

Back in 2013, Vantage Toyota Knaresborough acquired a Toyota Starlet as a part exchange and ever since, the Starlet has been a huge part of Vantage and used for a variety of reasons such as our Spot the Starlet competition. We also used the Starlet for educational purposes by delivering various talks to school children about responsibly helping the environment. In May 2019, the time came for Toyota Leeds to let go of their beloved Starlet. The Autogreen Company - Rewarding Recycling, helped us with responsibly disposing of the car through their Scrappage Scheme. Rewarding Recycling directly arranges the pick-up of your vehicle to be scrapped meaning all the hard work is done for you making the process hassle free.

As the owner of the car which is being scrapped, the good news is that you can make money by selling your end-of-life car or vehicle, accident damaged, non-runner or MOT failed car. There’s never been a better time to Scrap Old and Drive New.
