Beaverhead County Junk Vehicle Program

In 1973 the Montana Motor Vehicle Recycling and Disposal Act was enacted for the establishment, control, operation, and licensing of public and private motor vehicle wrecking facilities. This law requires commercial and county motor vehicle storage and wrecking yards to obtain an annual license, keep pertinent records and shield their junk vehicles from public view. This law also requires the control of junk vehicles in your yard, alley, etc. This program is administered through the Beaverhead County Sanitation office. If you have any questions or would like to report a junk vehicle that isn’t being properly shielded, please contact Jamie Flynn at (406) 683-3780.
