All these decades, vehicles had become necessary transportation in people’s lives. In Taiwan, more people owned the vehicles and more people traded off the old vehicles to a new one. periodically The vehicles dumped without treatment caused a lot of environmental problems, such as the older vehicles exhausted more pollutants. The improper handling or treatment of the wasted vehicles might cause the uncomfortable views of the environment. During the wasted vehicles’ disassembly procedure produced a lot of wastes (ex: waste fuel, waste tires, waste batteries, and cool agents, etc.) All the invaluable wastes might be disposed improperly to cause damages to the environment. In order to induce people send the waste vehicles to a legal disassemble plant and proper treatment, EPA setup the incentive policy to encourage people do the right way for their wasted vehicles. In 1999, the incentive policy had addressed that people could get the award only if they applied the waste vehicle into the certified recycling plants. Accumulated from 2003 up the now there were 1940 thousands wasted vehicles had been received by the certified plants and properly recycled and treated.
In 2007, EPA amended the incentive value and acceptable standard: The awarded objects which indicated that accepted vehicles’ year had been restricted (cars should be 10 years or above and motorcycles should be 7 years or above.), and the application document should be appended with the plate license discard or invalidation issued by the government. And the governmental owners should be not being awarded anymore. The policy set to encourage the old vehicles owners recycles the waste vehicles into a legal process.
