How do you junk a car in California?

What's the best way to junk a car in California? I've had this old car on my property forever, and I want to get rid of it. Unfortunately, I have no idea what to do with it.

To junk a car in California, you should sell it to a junkyard that’s equipped to handle cars. All you need to do is:
  • Contact your local junkyard about your car.
  • Give them your car’s information (make, model, year, and condition).
  • If it can’t move, give them an address to pick up the car.
Once you give them all the required information, the junkyard should make an offer for your car. If you accept, they’ll send you the money and come pick up the car. At the end of the day, junking an old car is an easy process and a quick way to make a little money.
