From 1 June 2007, new regulations apply to the scrapping of worn-out cars. The system of scrappage fees and premiums was done away with and the car scrappage fund wound up.
Among other things, these regulations mean that handing in your worn-out car to the producer or their representative will always be free of charge. Car producers are those who professionally manufacture cars in Sweden or professionally import cars into Sweden. According to law, producers are responsible for establishing reception centres. You can also hand in your car to a scrapyard that is not connected to the vehicle producers. They are not obliged to accept your car free of charge.
When you hand in your car to an authorised scrapyard, you have to provide identification and the yellow part (part 2) of the latest registration certificate. A power of attorney is required if someone else hands in the car. When you hand in your car, you have to sign a reception certificate. This is then sent to Swedish Transport Administration by the producer or scrapyard.
