What is ULEZ?

ULEZ stands for the Ultra Low Emissions Zone, and is an area of London encompassing Central London, covering the same space as the congestion charge zone. It runs 24 hours a day, every day (except Christmas), and is designed to improve air quality and promote the use of public transport and low-emission travel.

Any vehicle which is not ULEZ compliant (you can check on the ULEZ website) must pay a charge:

£12.50 daily rate for most cars, motorcycles and vans (up to and including 3.5 tonnes)
£100 daily rate for vehicles such as lorries / HGV (over 3.5 tonnes) and buses/coaches (over 5 tonnes)

From the 25th March 2021, ULEZ expanded to go up to (but not including) the A406 and A205 Circular roads.

Many other cities are considering operating similar schemes, so it’s something motorists need to be aware of. If it’s time to scrap your polluting, non-compliant vehicle, give Green Box Vehicle Recycling a call. We have over 40 years’ experience in vehicle disposal, and can offer a reliable, professional service to motorists in Hayes and throughout the area.

Why you might wish to scrap your non-compliant vehicle:

If you live in the ULEZ or travel through it often, the charges will soon mount up; it might be cheaper in the long run to buy a more economical, ULEZ-compliant car, especially as the zone widens and begins to cover more vehicles travelling through the capital. Also, if you run a business, you might have several vehicles travelling in this zone, which results significant cost to you.
