Our new and used electric vehicle incentives are back!

Welcome to the BC SCRAP-IT Program. We are a voluntary early retirement vehicle program that provides incentives to help British Columbians replace higher polluting vehicles 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.

In addition to our electric vehicle incentives, we also have:




Electric Bikes



Cash



Mobility Scooters



BC Transit Passes



Car Share Credits



Our program is easy, just follow these 4 simple steps:

SCRAP YOUR CAR

Take your email approval letter and your car to one of our approved drop off locations. If you are purchasing a new electric vehicle, you must keep the vehicle you intend to scrap, registered and insured until you take delivery of the new EV.

NOW ACCEPTING ANY MODEL YEAR!

We previously only accepted vehicle that were model year 2000 and older.
We are now accepting any model year.

If you scrap your vehicle, you will be able to choose from a long list of incentives including electric vehicles, transit passes, electric bicycles, car sharing memberships or $200 cash. Full details can be found on this page.

Older vehicle models emit up to 60 times more smog forming emissions than 2008 and later models. For example, replacing a 1990 sedan with a 2009 hybrid can result in a reduction of up to 67% in greenhouse gas emissions.
