Make a Smart choice: Trade your transport
‘Trade Your Transport’, a new initiative from the UK Company Cartakeback.com, encourages people to recycle their older, more polluting cars and choose a greener form of transport.
The bus company Arriva, is the latest partner to join forces with Trade Your Transport in the North West of England. In return for recycling their old car through Trade Your Transport, customers will receive four 4-Weekly Saver tickets for Arriva buses, worth more than £235. Other Arriva areas to follow suit are Scotland, Wales, the North East and the Midlands and due to launch shortly with their own rewards are Ipswich Buses, Network Warrington and Network West Midlands.
Taking old cars off the road can be of great benefit to the environment, to our health and to society - as long as it's done correctly. Every car recycled through Trade Your Transport will be treated at a Recycling Centre, where the hazardous materials (including oils, batteries and tyres) are removed; these would cause serious environmental damage if they ended up down the drain or in landfill.
