Disposing/Surrendering a Vehicle

If you own a car and do not wish to continue to use it or sell it, surrendering a car in Roxby Downs is easier to do than you think. Here’s what to do:

  1. Surrender your number plates and cancel any remaining registration on your car via Service SA. Roxby Council acts as a Rural Service Agent for Service SA. Download the relevant forms online and visit the Council office between Monday-Friday 9am-4pm.

  2. Take your unwanted car to BSH Waste Solutions (located 10-12 Gosse Street, Roxby Downs). Your car will be disposed of FREE OF CHARGE . If you are unable to take your car to BSH’s premises, pick up and disposal of your vehicle can be arranged for $100.

       For more information, contact BSH on 0405 134 427.
