If you are wondering about how we are going to treat your junk car after we pick it up, we will discuss this topic here. Today, we are going to be talking about whether or not junk car buyers are obligated to recycle your car. You will also read some other regulations that should be followed by all junk car buyers. As a legal junkyard company in New England, we have followed all of these regulations from the National DMV in the United States.

The short answer is no. There are no state requirements that obligate us to recycle a junk car. We don’t have to recycle a junk car after we buy it for our clients if we plan on reselling it. However, there are some other rules that we have to follow to adhere to other regulations.

Some Responsibilities for Junk Yards, Salvage Yards, and Auto Recyclers

One of the most important responsibilities that we have to do is providing an inventory of all junk cars or salvaged automobiles. These cars may be obtained as a whole or as a part of a completed vehicle. Some important things should be included in the inventory details, for example

  • the name, address, and also contact information from the auto recyclers, salvage yards, or junkyards
  • VIN of the junk car
  • The date when the car was obtained
  • The name of the entity or individual from whom the junk car was obtained

All of those information details must be included in a report that must be submitted to the state. There is also another statement that should be submitted to the authorities. This statement will inform whether the automobile will be crushed, disposed of, sold to other parties, etc. When the vehicle is intended for being exported out from the United States, the junk car buyers also need to report it to the Department of Motor Vehicle.

Any junk car buyers or salvage yards may also be required to file an additional update or supplemental report of the final disposition process of any junk cars. This final disposition information is required when the actual disposition process is different from what was reported initially. Junk car buyers also need to report any junk vehicles and salvage cars that they obtain, including any cars from the insurance carriers. These cars may be assumed as the total loss vehicles.
