The BC Scrap-It Program is a province-wide program that offers incentives for scrap vehicles in an effort to reduce pollution and protect the environment. The program provides financial assistance to help cover the cost of buying a new, more fuel-efficient vehicle when you scrap your old vehicle.
If you're thinking about buying a new car, the BC Scrap-It Program can help make it more affordable. The program offers two types of incentives: a $3,000 incentive for passenger vehicles and a $1,500 incentive for motorcycles when you scrap your old vehicle.
The BC Scrap-It Program is funded by the province of British Columbia and is administered by the New Car Dealers Association of BC.
