Since 1996, the BC SCRAP-IT® Program has been removing high polluting vehicles from British Columbia roads. 2010 marks the 15th Anniversary of the program’s operations – a major milestone for the non-profit society. In July of 2010, another major milestone was reached – the 25,000th vehicle scrapped through the program. Reaching these two milestones simultaneously offered a prime opportunity to gain media exposure for the program. To celebrate these two achievements, SCRAP-IT held the 15 Year Anniversary and 25,000th Vehicle Scrapped milestone event on July 15, 2010. Media and guests watched as the 25,000th vehicle was crushed live on site. Vehicles 24,998 and 24,999 scrapped through the program were also crushed to increase the fun factor.
