As we move onward with the latest news and information from the world of scrap autos, we illustrate the (6) steps in scrapping a car.

  1. Acceptance of the reality that your vehicle has reached the ended of its useful life. The reasons tend to be that the costs of fixing the car exceed the value of the vehicle if it were in running condition; or, that too much time has passed since the car was parked with the intention of repairing it and you need it removed.
  2. Locate the vehicle title and ID, since these items are necessary in Ohio to transfer ownership. Also at this time you confirm the year, make and model of the car to be salvaged.
  3. Determining who will buy and scrap the car for you. Typically you will contact several junk car hauling outfits for pricing and details. We recommend a Google search to identify the options.
  4. Schedule and coordinate a time for the exchange to take place (cash for the car). The listed owner on the title will need to be present, and usually allowing for a couple hour “window” of time is recommended i.e. 10AM-12PM.
  5. Remove any personal items that you need to from the scrap vehicle.
  6. When the scrap vehicle removal driver arrives he should give you a receipt or bill of sale to document the completion of the transaction.

On May 3, 2016 Alyana Gomez posted a story on NBC Connecticut titled ‘Know How to Protect Your Used Car Purchase’ explaining the following: “NBC CT found several laws most consumers didn’t know about relating to buying a used car. Maria Hart, a single mother, says she feels taken advantage of. Hart purchased a 2008 Nissan Altima. It looked shiny and new and she paid $7.5K for it at Empire Auto. A couple days after, the brakes were squeaking & grinding. Hart said Empire told her that the problem was fixed. The car returned (6) times over the course of (5) months. She dealt with a damaged catalytic converter, a bad transmission, and then again leaks in the new transmission. Frustrated, Ms. Hart complained to the Better Business Bureau.

The manager at Empire says the car was sold in “as is” condition. According to CT law, dealers have the right to sell a vehicle as-is if the car over (6) years old or bought for under $3K. This car was (8) eight years old; however, according to Dan Blinn with a Consumer Law Group, the dealer is required to conduct a comprehensive safety check and give the customer certification as such. Blinn says if dealers fail to provide this documentation, it is considered an unfair trade practice, subject to a $500 fine. Dan Blinn also says each car must pass emissions testing and that CT law requires dealers to allow an independent mechanical inspection per request. The full article is available here.

An article posted on Waste Dive on April 8, 2016 by Arlene Karidis titled ‘Ohio squashes $100M recycling facility deal with Team Gemini’ informed us of the following: “The Solid Waste Authority of Central Ohio (SWACO) has canceled a $100M initiative that would have brought a new recycling facility and a waste-to-energy site to Franklin County. Team Gemini, a Florida-based outfit, who was to build the facility, reportedly defaulted on rent and has suspended the project.

The plan, in the works for three years and slated for completion in June, called for Team Gemini to receive and buy recyclables from SWACO, sell them, and send the balance to a landfill. In addition to the rent problem, there were other concerns including the feasibility on this size or scale. Ty Marsh, SWACO’s executive director, says that SWACO has taken possession of the property and is working to figure out a plan.

Deals are made and deals fall through, especially with capital-intensive projects dependent on tough recycling markets. Even existing MRFs are shutting down—including those owned and operated by industry giants like Waste Management. This has been an industry trend for over three years, with devalued materials and higher operating costs driving the plant shut downs. In Ohio, Team Gemini couldn’t raise the money to build the large facility. Mr. Marsh further said that the failure of the Gemini project in no way diminishes interest in leveraging the waste that’s generated in Franklin County for greater economic opportunity. SWACO will continue to work to extend the Franklin County landfill’s life without expanding its size—a goal that the Authority set fairly recently, but now may have trouble achieving.” Additional details on this issue are available at this link.
