Effective September 1, 2015, the BC SCRAP-IT® Program is accepting applications from commercial truck owners who want to “do the right thing environmentally” and scrap their old pre-2010 trucks – if you are interested, apply soon!

In the pilot phase, the program will be offering a $5,000 total incentive, partnering with First Truck Centers (Freightliner) in Surrey to do this. The incentive comprises two contributions, a $1,000 discount off the price of the new truck from First Truck Centers and a $4,000 incentive from SCRAP-IT.

In order to qualify for the incentive you must scrap a model year 2009 or older Class 5 or above (5, 6, 7 or 8) truck, and you must purchase a 2010 or newer Class 5 or above, lower emissions truck from First Truck Centers. There are some additional program policies to note, including that the truck being scrapped must have been registered and insured in BC for a minimum of one year. For further program details, please visit the SCRAP-IT website.

Potential participants should be aware that until further funding is available, the pilot program will only accept 10 transactions (10 scrap trucks).

The SCRAP-IT Program is a voluntary, “early retirement” vehicle program based in Richmond, BC, in operation since 1996. SCRAP-IT provide incentives to help British Columbians replace higher polluting light-duty vehicles and commercial trucks with cleaner forms of transportation. The program is designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to lower exhaust pollutants across the province. All scrapped vehicles and their components are permanently and properly recycled.
