Program Policies

SCRAP-IT® is a not for profit society. It is not a provincial or federal government program. As such, all rebates, credits or incentives are subject to change at any time without notice as they are directly linked to available funding.

Program rebates are available to REGISTERED OWNER(S) of vehicles only. This does not include principal drivers or family members as identified below.


  • Applicants must apply on their own behalf.
  • All applicants must agree to the program’s policies.
  • In our application process you will be asked to agree with our privacy policy. It can be viewed under FAQs & Policies.


  • All customers must understand and agree that the Rebate/Credit Choice you select in the application process is final. Rebate/Credit Choices cannot be changed in the claim process.


  • All applicant(s) must be the registered owner(s) of the vehicle being scrapped.
  • The registered owner(s) of the vehicle being scrapped must be the registered owner(s) of the vehicle being purchased/leased.
  • Principal drivers of vehicles registered in a different person(s) name (regardless of whether or not that other person is a family member – spouse, son, daughter, common-law, etc.) cannot be the recipient of rebate.
  • All applicants must be 19 years of age or older. Applicants under 19 who own a vehicle that qualifies may apply with parental consent. Please use our Contact Us page to request a Consent Form.


  • All applicants must be able to provide evidence from ICBC that they have continuously registered and insured the vehicle in their name with driving insurance, in BC, for the 6 months period from the date they apply to the program, backwards.
  • If you do not have 6 months of continuous insurance as described above, please email us and provide us with your ownership and insurance history (and any supporting documentation you may have). We will review it to determine if you qualify for an exception.
  • Vehicles must be registered in the Province of British Columbia in order to qualify for our program.
  • Vehicles cannot have any liens or other encumbrances registered against them. SCRAP-IT will not be held legally liable or responsible for any vehicle that is scrapped where there is such an interest.


  • The vehicle being scrapped must be registered in the applicant’s name. If there are multiple owners/applicants, ALL must be identified on the application form, ALL must agree to the program’s terms and conditions, and ALL must be present when dropping the vehicle off at an authorized scrap dealer location.
  • All applicants must scrap their vehicle and claim their rebate within the 30 day period indicated on their Approval Email. If we have not received your claim within 30 days your application will be closed and you will have to reapply.
  • You must scrap your vehicle at an authorized scrap location.
  • APPLICANTS ARE ONLY ENTITLED TO REBATES OFFERED ON THE DATE OF APPLICATION, if they both scrap their vehicle and submit their claim to us during the 30 day approval period. (For clarity: If you scrap your vehicle and do not submit your claim to us within the 30 day approval period you will lose any and all entitlement to a rebate. There is no exception to this. If you apply for a rebate but do not scrap your vehicle within the 30 day approval period, you may reapply and submit a new claim. However, if you do so, you will only be entitled to the rebates being offered on the date of application).
  • Vehicles must be delivered to the scrap yard intact. You cannot remove tires, seats, steering wheels, batteries or any other removable parts prior to delivery to (or at) the scrap yard.
  • You are responsible for removing your license plates from the vehicle before you leave the scrap location. Please ensure you bring the tools you need to do this.


  • All rebate-based payments are made by EFT (electronic funds transfer) directly from us, to you. All customers must provide the required EFT information when applying to our program, this will include (1) institution number, (2) routing number, and (3) bank account number and (4) uploaded copy of a void cheque or equivalent.
  • EFTs are not processed until we receive both your complete claim, and the scrap verification data from the scrap location you chose.
  • If you have not received your EFT from us within  2 weeks of submitting a complete claim, you must contact us by phone or email and advise us accordingly.
  • Our service standard for processing EFTs is 2 weeks (for vehicles scrapped in the lower mainland or on Vancouver Island), 4 weeks for vehicles scrapped outside the lower mainland.
