The San Luis Obispo APCD old car buy back program will pay you $1,000 to voluntarily retire your 1994 or older car, pick-up truck or van. Model year eligibility and purchase price varies for Los Osos residents – see the Community Clean Air Incentives for Los Osos HERE.
Motor vehicles produce more than half of the air pollution in San Luis Obispo County. Removing older, high-emitting vehicles from the roadways helps clean up the air.
To qualify for the buy back program, vehicles must be operational and registered in San Luis Obispo County; additional eligibility requirements apply. To find out if your car qualifies, visit the Old Car Buy Back website: www.oldcarbuyback.com/slo.php or call the Old Car Buy Back Hotline: 800-717-7624.
If you decide to buy or lease a new vehicle, consider a plug-in hybrid or all-electric vehicle! The California Clean Vehicle Rebate Project offers rebates up to $4,000 for individuals that get a new qualifying vehicle. For more information, please visit CleanVehicleRebate.org/SLOEQ or call 866-984-2532.
