Millions if not billions tons of scrap vehicles disintegrate all over the world due to legal issues. If only the law ministers can take a decision on how and when they should be scrapped.

Scrap CarLast time I attended the conference of International Scrap Business, one of the speakers raised the issue of scrap vehicles seized under law and left to rust in open spaces. It is estimated that millions of vehicles especially Trucks & Cars which are used to smuggle goods are confiscated by officials and moved to yards until the legal procedures are over.  Legal proceedings may take years and years especially in third world countries like India where it takes decades to get a judgment.  Even if a judgment is delivered there is an appeal process and it is a never ending procedure.


Recently I talked to a frustrated Local Police official who said “These battered trucks and cars are lying for 15 years now and some of the owners are dead too. Reptiles of all kinds and sizes make their home here and sometimes crawl into the police station. Also it has become the breeding ground for mosquitoes. There is hardly any space left here. I wish the Government does something to get rid of this junk from here


Unfortunately politicians all around the world talk about recycling and re-use but hardly do anything Scrap vehicleto achieve the goals. They simply overlook what is available but plan for Green projects worth millions of dollars. If only they can come up with simple rules to auction off these vehicles after a period of time.  This will create a great impact in the scrap industry and will bring down the prices considerably.  It will reduce the high transportation costs and clean up millions of acres of land. On top of it we can save the soil from oil/fuel leakages from these vehicles if they are disposed at the right time.


LET US TELL THE LAW MINISTERS ACROSS THE WORLD TO TAKE A QUICK ACTION AND HELP US RECYCLE AND SAVE MOTHER EARTH.
