Car Shelter01/10/19 City Encourages Residents To Use Its Free Vehicle Junking Service

City encourages residents to use its free vehicle junking service

The city's Department of Customer Services is reminding residents of its offer to accept their unwanted vehicles as junk.

The city has been offering the service for free in an effort to help reduce the number of vehicles abandoned on city streets that soon become heavily vandalized eyesores.

An estimated 3,089 abandoned and derelict vehicles were removed from city streets in 2018. That figure represents a 57 percent increase from 2017, when the city removed 1,971 abandoned and derelict vehicles left on public property.

"We want people to know that it's illegal to abandon your unwanted vehicle on public roadways, and if you're caught, it could lead to a $160 fine," said Customer Services Deputy Director Randy Leong. "This is unnecessary if the vehicle is voluntarily surrendered under the city's free junking program. Using this program also relieves the owner of any registration fees owed on the car."

The junking program, however, will not relieve previous owners of any financial responsibility such as car loans, criminal charges or citations. Information on junking a vehicle is available online at

The following is the process to junk a vehicle for free:

  • Print and fill out the vehicle junking form
  • Remove the vehicle license plates
  • Bring the form, plates, registration and title to a Satellite City Hall
  • Follow the directions provided and the vehicle will be picked up and processed for disposal at no cost to the owner

"We urge residents to use our free junking service," added Leong. "Every abandoned vehicle creates unnecessary work at taxpayer expense. With cooperation from residents, we can more effectively lessen blight in our neighborhoods."
