This report gives a detailed study of two pilot projects, which helped to improve the market for abandoned vehicles, plus a full-scale demonstration project, which was to improve overall solid waste management by recovering, for recycling, as many junked and abandoned vehicles as possible in 15 selected counties. The benefits of the program were many. During the project year, over 5,000 abandoned vehicles were collected and recycled. Each car was converted into approximately one ton of steel. Local sponsors received about $100,000 from the sale of the junked cars to recycling firms. Therefore, aesthetic, environmental, and monetary goals were all met. Discussion of future program needs and legislative recommendations were also included in this report.
