Amy Noonan of Adelaide newspaper The Advertiser noted as much with the crushing of two cars confiscated by the South Australian government back in October 2010. A number of states in Australia already have their own anti-hooning laws. Cars caught for hooning may range from the top-of-the-line cars to older units that have become “sleeper” vehicles in their own right. If you want to unload a chunk of scrap metal that was once a car or a hoon that has been written off, trusted scrap metal merchants like Global Resources are ready to get it off your hands.

Certain residential properties contain so much junk they practically beg to be quarantined and their contents hauled off for disposal due to health concerns. Emily Crane of Daily Mail Australia writes about one such property in the greater Adelaide area that is in dire need of attention from a scrap metal pick up service. The owner has apparently dismissed concerns about the need to tidy his place up. Crane writes that the Playford Council spent over $80,000 in legal fees since 2001 to force David Tavitian of Shaftesbury Road in Elizabeth Vale to clean up his yard. The situation took a turn for the worse in 2006, when an environmental compliance inspection yielded traces of rat faeces, an old refrigerator, and spent wheels.
