The Junkyard and Salvage Control Act (K.S.A 68-2201 et seq) implemented in 1967 grants to the Secretary of Transportation the authority to regulate the establishment, operations, and maintenance salvage yards in areas within one thousand feet of any public road in the State of Kansas.
The Kansas Department of Transportation can only certify a salvage location if the local governing body will allow such location to exist. In addition, any location not in a zoned industrial area must be screened so that all “junk” shall not be visible from the main traveled way. An application is required to obtain a license (Certificate of Compliance). In addition, a $50 annual fee is required.
Dealing in used salvage motor vehicles and/or used or recycled parts required a license issued by the Kansas Department of Revenue, Division of Vehicles under K.S.A. 8-24-1(y) and 8-81404(t) at http://ksrevenue.org/pdf/d35.pdf
