Vehicle Disposal Policy Ramstein Auto Recycling

If you would like to dispose of your vehicle please follow these steps:

  1. Visit the Ramstein Auto Recycling Center, Bldg 5122 Ramstein Air Base.
  2. Present both copies of the USAREUR POV Registration/Title Certificate (by the owner/or designee as stated by an official power of attorney).
  3. After ownership is verified the on-duty attendant will stamp both copies of the vehicle registration. One copy will be given back to the owner and the other copy remains on file with Ramstein Auto Recycling Center.
  4. You will then receive a copy of the AF Form 190-IZ-R (Certification of Release/Donation of POV). This form is the customer’s documentation showing authorized disposal of the POV.
  5. Pay the $30.00 vehicle disposal fee. The Ramstein Auto Recycling Center charges a $30.00 disposal fee to offset the cost of expenses associated with final disposal. The vehicle disposed of, but needing to be towed will be charged the vehicle disposal fee of $15.00 plus the tow fee (please call for tow fees).
  6. Next, you are responsible to hand carry the vehicle’s license plates, stamped copy of registration, and copy of the AF Form 190-IZ-R to the Vehicle Registration Main Office.
  7. For your convenience, we suggest that you make an additional copy of the AF Form 190-IZ-R to be kept with your records, in the case of accidental loss of paperwork, you will have this copy as backup proof of correct disposal.

It’s that easy, but if you have any questions please contact us!
