It just got easier to qualify for ScRAPS 2 - new trip requirements for the program
The goal of the next phase of the Port of Seattle’s Clean Truck program is for all drayage trucks that enter the port’s container terminals to have model-year 2007 or newer engines or meet 2007 federal emissions standards. The requirement is aimed at reducing air emissions from port-related activities.
To help truck owners meet the requirement, the port and the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency launched ScRAPS 2 (Seaport Truck Scrappage and Replacements for Air in Puget Sound 2) in May 2014. The program is funded by state and federal grants and provides $20,000 to $27,000 to eligible owners who scrap old trucks and buy newer ones that meet the standard.
New Trip Requirements:
To enter the program, truck drivers must have made 200 trips to the Northwest Seaport Alliance (Ports of Seattle and Tacoma) in the last 12 months. Now up to 100 of those trips can be made to container terminals in Tacoma. A minimum of 100 trips to terminals in Seattle are required as part of the 200 trip total.
In August, the Ports of Seattle and Tacoma formed the Northwest Seaport Alliance to jointly manage marine cargo facilities.
