Should I report my neighbor's junked car?

Reporting A Junked Vehicle

Did you finally have enough and decide to report your neighbor's junked car? It's been there for how many years? It's almost certain that by this time, that car has been polluting the environment and atmosphere for quite some time. Congratulations on taking the step to request a junk car pickup. In fact, more people should be doing just that. The question is, what happens a day or so later when the neighbor in question shows up at your house in a rage? For whatever reason, they didn't want that car removed from their property. Maybe they'll say they were planning on doing it, but just hadn't gotten around to it. In that case, shake their hand and say, "You're welcome!" for doing them a favor.

While junk car laws vary from state to state, most laws will grant a 30-day grace period for the owner of the junk car to remove it from their property voluntarily. After that time, the government will request a junk car pickup. The bill will be in the mail shortly thereafter. Why not avert all of that headache and just make the call. Free services like will be more than happy to help you out. In the meantime, don't worry about what the neighbors think or whether you're doing the right thing. If you're ridding the environment of hazardous polutants, then you're doing the right thing.
