Disposing Junk Cars

First, let me say that metal is money. Don't throw it away just because it looks bad. That said here are a couple of options.

  1. Haul the car or metal to a metal recycling location. You can probably find one using for your area.

  2. Look on Craigslist and see if someone has posted an ad to buy metal. You may not get as much if they are hauling.

  3. Call the recycling place to see if they pick up or have names of people who do.

  4. Post your metal on Craigslist for sale.

  5. Check local papers (trade/news).

  6. Ask friends if they know anyone who deals with metal.

  7. If the car is old enough, someone might buy it to restore. Post it for sale on Craigslist or a "car" site (google the type of car followed by the word CLUB). This applies to old motorcycles too.

As a last resort, list the car as "free, as is". You would be surprised at how many teenagers would love it to work on. Also someone who has a car just like it might want it for parts.


If you can't sell it you most likely will have no trouble giving it away.

Here in VA you can sell any car no matter what shape it is in for $200.00. They come and get it and haul it themselves.
Also any old trailers (homes) they will buy and come and pick up. We had a trailer moved to our property years ago for a workshop and we paid $800.00 to have it moved. So that in itself is a worthwhile thing to do. And you are also recycling at the same time. I love people who recycle. They are thinking ahead.
