'get rid of' is the definition.
(discarding is a kind of getting rid of)

'one's vehicle being collected by daughters' is the wordplay.
'one's' becomes 'is' (Roman numeral).
'vehicle' becomes 'card' (I can't explain this - if you can you should give a lot more credence to this answer).

'iscard' put after 'd' is 'DISCARD'.
