Free Car Dumping
Now's the time to tell your friends or neighbors with those ugly old cars on their property that haven't been driven for years to get rid of them.
The Eureka Reporter has what appears to be a public service notice, not available online apparently, the the county has announced you can dump off those old cars at John's Used Cars and Auto Wreckers on Jacobs Avenue, just north of Eureka.
Even if you don't have the paperwork, the powers- that- be will take care of that for you. You just need to get the vehicle to the wrecking yard. Even if you can't get it there, it might be worth it to have it towed.
I think they usually charge $100 for cars to be dumped, although I drove my old truck in there a couple years ago and they took it without charging. No mention of any charges for this amnesty program.
They say only passenger cars, pick up trucks, vans and motorcycles will be accepted. No extra tires or garbage in the vehicles, please.
The amnesty program goes from January 2 (now they tell us) through February 15. They're open Monday thru Friday 9 to 4pm, Saturday from 9 to 2pm.

Ok. You all have your marching orders. Let's get rid of all those old junk cars.
