Air District pays cash for old cars

Another note from Supervisor Yeager:

In addition to serving as a member of the California Air Resources Board, I represent the County locally on the Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD). BAAQMD runs a variety of programs aimed at reducing air pollution and greenhouse gases—Spare the Air probably being one of its most well known. Another of its more popular services is the Vehicle Buy Back Program.

The Vehicle Buy Back Program will pay $1,000 for an operating and registered 1989 and older vehicle. Vehicle dismantlers contracted by the BAAQMD will then scrap the vehicles. This program reduces air pollution by voluntarily removing older, dirtier vehicles off the road.

To qualify, vehicles must be in running condition and registered in the Bay Area for the past 24 months. Vehicles within 60 days of a smog check must also be able to pass it. For more information, go to The program ends on December 31, 2010.
