Clean Air Foundation launches car recycling program in Halifax

Halifax, Nova Scotia – The Car Heaven program, run by the Clean Air Foundation in partnership with General Motors, has launched its service in Halifax. The program is dedicated to accelerating the retirement of older, higher polluting vehicles and to promoting a shift to new, cleaner and more efficient alternatives.

Each donor receives a minimum $50 charitable tax receipt from the donor’s choice of 22 affiliated charities, and the vehicle is towed free of charge by A-Part Auto. In addition, if the vehicle being donated is a 1995 model year or newer, in running condition, and licensed and insured for the previous consecutive six months, General Motors will provide a $1,000 certificate that can be applied to the purchase of any new GM vehicle. To date, more than 34,000 vehicles have been retired through Car Heaven.
