How to dipose of interior "junk"?

I've stripped a few cars out already, but never really did any interior "trashing". I mainly stayed to ripping sheet metal and driveline stuff. Never stripped an interior down as far as these are going. Hopefully spring is just around the corner, and I'm getting eager to get back to stripping the "junk" stuff from my 2 Monte's. I know what I'm keeping from each, but now I'd like to know what you guys do to get rid of the un-needed stuff. I've got a full set of seats, the carpet (from both cars) and a mix of scuffed and faded plastic trim items. Do you guys just toss that stuff in the regular trash? Got any "free advice" for me? Thanks.


In a while, Chet.

Down here we just put it out with the trash and a special truck comes by and picks it up. Most of the time the better junk disappears quickly.

Same here. The trash company will take any one large item a week, as long as it can be lifted by two guys. Carpet just gets rolled up and tied in a package they can pick up without scooping. Like Speedy said though, the good stuff is usually gone before morning!

I live in the country now....I have a fire pit and a burn barrel.

If they will pick it up, thats great. When I lived in town, they had big garbage pickups, but stressed they wouldn't take auto parts. When I used to strip a car, I would put the interior stuff back into the hulk I was scrapping....they always took it, never complained.

You'd be surprised what will sell on ebay.

IF it has absolutely no value, then toss it, but if it might be useable, I'd see what it would go for on ebay.

Our trash disposal outfit has a 60 lb. limit (per trash can), except a once a year "large item" clean-up. Maybe I can sneak the seats into a local yard with a partial load of other metal leftovers (empty my crap steel bin...). I'd gladly chuck it back in the old hulk, but I'm keeping that around while I hack the floor and left quarter out. Maybe I can convince my wife I need another car to aid in disposing in the junk from these two. Are there any oddsmakers in the house? Thanks guys.


In a while, Chet.

We have a transfer station to which I make a dump run about every month or six weeks..I just put it all together and go..

Thats is why we own pickup trucks..

I wish. If they were the swivel seats, I would have vacuumed the mouse turds and had them mounted to my living room floor already.....
