A minimum 5-inch diameter hole must be punched into the engine block.
Not destroy any identifying numbers on the truck and/or its engine such as the Vehicle Identification Numbers (VIN) or engine serial numbers.
If the truck VIN or engine serial number cannot be located, the truck must not be scrapped or destroyed until notification is made to District staff for assessment.
The Dismantler may not use or permit the use of the old truck, except use as necessary to move it for destruction or storage.
Notify the District that the old truck is destroyed and ready for inspection within 10 days of the old truck’s destruction. Notification to the District of the destroyed old truck must be made using the District’s Notice of Destruction Form. Additional copies of the Form can be obtained by calling program staff at (559) 230-5800.
Once received, the District will contact the Dismantler to schedule a destruction-inspection visit, and at such time, a District inspector will verify the destruction of the old truck and its engine with photographs.
Allow the destruction of the engine and old truck to be documented by the District.
The District must verify in-person the proper destruction of the old truck and its engine. District staff must also verify the old truck’s VIN and engine serial number.
The Dismantler must not remove the old truck from their property, or part out an old vehicle, until a post-destruction-inspection by the District has been performed and the Dismantler has been given approval by the District.
File a Notice of Acquisition/Report of Vehicle to be Dismantled (REG 42) and provide the District with proof of this filing within sixty (60) days receipt of the old truck.
The application must be filled out completely and as accurately as possible. Do not leave any fields blank, as it lengthens the processing timeframe associated with the application and delays funding.

If a third party, other than the dealership, filled out any part of the application on behalf of the applicant, make sure the Third Party Signature section is completely filled out and signed.
