Old Car Buy Back

Old Car Buyback Program DISCONTINUED

Effective July 1, 2023, SLO County APCD no longer offers an Old Car Buyback Program.  

Please refer to these statewide programs that may be of benefit to local community members: 

The California Clean Vehicle Rebate Project (CVRP) provides funding to help people into a new or used plug in hybrid or EV without scrapping out an existing vehicle. https://cleanvehiclerebate.org/en

California Bureau of Automotive Repair’s Consumer Assistance Program offers $1,000 to individuals ($1,500 for low income) to scrap out their car. The standard ($1,000) incentive requires that the car has failed its most recent smog inspection. https://www.bar.ca.gov/consumer/consumer-assistance-program
