Program Policies

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

  • 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 found here.
  • All applicant(s) must be the registered owner(s) of the vehicle being scrapped.
  • 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 a 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.

  • Any break in continuous insurance coverage (storage, vacation, etc.) disqualifies the vehicle from our program.

  • All applicants must scrap their vehicle and claim a 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.
  • Applicants are only entitled to rebates/credits offered on the date of application, if you 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. 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 that 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.

Electric Bike Specific Policies
