Find out about the Birmingham scrappage scheme

Birmingham’s Clean Air Zone Vehicle Scrappage Scheme rewards eligible people living and working in the city’s Clean Air Zone, with the option of scrapping a vehicle that would otherwise be subject to the daily fee. The scheme has three options of incentives available.

Before scrapping your vehicle you should first check the criteria and apply through the Brum Breathes website.
