Winnipeg Free Press (Newspaper) - December 5, 1970, Winnipeg, ManitobaWinnipeg free press saturday december 5, 1970 Lack of Over All plan spurs study to Clear vehicles there May be up to they also remain As eyesores 000 derelict motor vehicles strewn across Manitoba but because there s no Over All plan to move them to Winnipeg economically they remain an untapped source of scrap Metal. All Over the province. A committee to research the problem and come up with a solution has been set up by the Manitoba government. Sources say that the committee will draft legislation making the clean proper collection of derelict vehicles the responsibility of the municipalities. I. L. Permut the manager of Princess Auto and machinery Ltd., and president of the Mani Toba Auto and truck salvages association said the cars and trucks Are valuable to the Sal pagers for parts and Are there Ore not derelict. Every car that comes off the Road is of value either for its parts or for its Metal or steel. The whole Crux of the problem and the one the government will have to solve is a financially possible dependable collection arrangement for these said or. Per Mut. The three plants in the prov Ince dealing with stripped vehicles Are Winnipeg car Crusher Ltd., in Transcona general scrap and car shredder Ltd., in Springfield and Mandak Metal processors in Selkirk. The matter May become an individual responsibility with the vehicle owner paying an extra 50 cents on his licence fee As suggested by a member Bob Pressman manager for i of the government committee. General scrap agreed the prob Lem was Lack of unified collection. Rifah White Delcau French Rye Westminster bakery 100 general scrap imports specially prepared cars and trucks from car Basher Ltd., a Canadian company operating in Minnesota. Americans seem to centralize their cars better and car Basher is paid so much per cur to take them off the Sal pagers hands. The company has a portable machine which Flat tens the cars and they Are shipped to us. We would take Manitoba cars but because there is no organized economic collection process Here no one Lias gone into the said or. Pressman. For example he said there May be As Many As cars on an Indian reservation but they Are not centralized and the Cost of collecting them would far exceed the to the Plant pays for a prepared car. There Are 10 trucking Compa Nies in the business of collect ing cars and trucks. They Are All Independent of each other and get most of their vehicles rom Salvage Yards. From to vehicles yearly Are brought in by these Manitoba trucking firms. They iring in As Many As 30 ears or Rucks a Day which have been flattened by a Bull Dozer. In Maryland car buyers pay a disposal fee when they buy a car. Salvage lots Are necessary but or. Permut admitted they Don t add too much in the Way of natural Beauty to their surroundings. He said some operations Are a lot Messier than they have to be and those operators who let their Yards sprawl out should be made to clean them up. Since the operation of the car Crusher and the car shredder there has not been too much of a problem within the limits of greater Winnipeg but there Are still a few car hulks to be seen. The City of Winnipeg refuse grounds on me Phillips Street past the perimeter Highway still accepts cars which have no wheels engines or doors but the flow has almost stopped. The rest of the municipalities allow Cut up cars to be taken to he refuse grounds. Library Experiment in Rural Manitoba unfair to advertise such Good food with such Small Adt. Winnipeg car Crusher in Transcona accepts flattened cars from the same trucking companies As general scrap but it also provides a. Pick up service to take cars from Pri vate individuals. Gary Leach manager of Winnipeg car Crusher said the Plant handles about cars a year. They Are crushed into Bales and shipped to Hamilton and steel plants in the United states. The Winnipeg car Crusher does not process the steel to a degree that it can be used by he rolling Mills. Mandak in Selkirk handles mostly railway cars with a sideline in automobiles. It Sells the scrap steel to the roiling Mills in lumps. The real problem seems to be n Rural areas where the Ruckers have to travel As far As 200 Miles to get a Cache of wrecked cars. A demonstration project de signed to enlarge existing Rural area Library services and de liver them to More people in a Region is now underway in the Parkland regional develop ment Section Manitoba agriculture minister Samuel Yuskiw has reported. The project is being developed under the province s new agro Manitoba social development program which has been set up to test a number of programs aimed at increasing the use of existing educational and recreational facilities in Rural Manitoba.

In addition there is a pro the two scrap Metal processors in Winnipeg will arrange for a Tow truck to bring cars if the car has a motor a Radiator and a Battery and it in t in Charles Wood River Heights Tuxedo or any comparable place in distance from the plants it does t pay to pick it up for the value of the car alone. The Auto owner then has to pay to get it off his property. Salvage dealers say this is one of the reasons so Many cars Are accumulated because the Public won t pay to get rid of them. They say it is going to take a total Effort to get a sys tem going to get rid of cars and municipal by Laws enacted to put regulations into effect to keep the car clutter Down to a minimum. .
