How do we assist in the crack-down on illegal motor vehicle scrapping?
There are several tell-tale signs of illegal scrapping operations. Officers who witness these signs or suspect illegal activity should document their accounts and contact the Iowa DOTs Motor Vehicle Enforcement Office at 515-237-3247 to report the situation for further investigation. In addition, law enforcement agencies can help reduce illegal scraping activities by alerting licensed recyclers in their area to suspicious scrapping activities. Establishing a cooperative relationship between licensed recyclers and law enforcement can lead to the prosecution of criminals.
