Are you driving an old beater on its last wheels? If so, consider taking advantage of one of the on-road vehicle scrappage programs popping up across Canada.

As concern over the environmental and health effects of air pollution grows, scrappage programs that seek to improve air quality by removing older, higher-polluting vehicles now operate in many major cities.

Eligibility criteria exist, but once accepted, a vehicle is recycled according to environmental guidelines. In exchange, owners receive incentives such as a chance to win a new car or free passes for months of public transit.
