A state program to offer money to old car owners


May 25, Fineko/abc.az. The automobile park of Azerbaijan will be updated. Old and expired cars will be sent for recycling. Instead, our country will conduct a campaign encouraging citizens to buy new cars.

ABC.AZ reports that Rasim Sattarzade, Adviser to the Minister of Ecology & Natural Resources, emphasized that several government agencies have prepared a joint project on the disposal of old vehicles in Azerbaijan.

"Currently, the production date of 80% of cars in Azerbaijan is more than 10 years old. This shows how serious the threat is. The main purpose of the developed state program is to encourage the use of eco-friendly vehicles. Car owners who have sent their cars with expired service life for recycling will be provided with cash or other benefits will be applied," Sattarzadeh said.

Minister’s adviser added that sending cars for recycling will be voluntary.
