Motor vehicle salvage yards in Minnesota

Salvage YardMotor vehicle salvage facilities play a valuable role by recovering and reselling usable parts from worn-out or damaged vehicles, then recycling the unusable materials. In the process, salvage yards generate wastes that can be harmful to public health and the environment if allowed to contaminate soil, air or surface and ground water.

If you have a concern about possible mismanagement of waste by a business, including a salvage yard, you may submit a complaint on our Citizen Complaint page. Complaints may be submitted anonymously.

The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) has compiled the following guidance documents to assist salvage yard owners and operators.
