Considering the abandoning, collecting, storing, disposing, salvaging, and processing of junked cars as an integrated system, the authors analyzed each component of the system-the Junked Car, the Abandoned Car, the Impounded Car, the Auto Dismantler, the Scrap Processor, the Scrap User-and identified seven problem areas in the system, each requiring a solution. Based upon the data collected, alternative approaches to each problem were evaluated. In the evaluation, all alternatives, based on both technological changes in the private sector and suggested government actions, were analyzed to determine the effect of each on all problems and components of the system. Finally, a set of conclusions and recommendations was developed. (Author Modified Abstract)
