- Trucks may be towed to the scrap site, as long as they are in service and drivable when we issue approval to scrap. Some metal scrapers are not set up or allowed to handle the fluids such as fuel and oil so they require the trucks to be emptied and therefore undrivable the day they are scrapped. Proof must be provided that the vehicle being scrapped was currently in service and in working order (drivable) before being scrapped.
