How should I dispose of old license plates from my car?

Asked by unacornea (314 points ) January 18th, 2008

i just registered my car in california and changed the plates, i’m not sure if i should throw the old ones away, or recycle them, or what. is there any chance someone could get them out of the garbage and use them for something that i could end up being held accountable for ?

Good question; I believe that in California you’re supposed to send them in or drop them off to the CA DMV so as to avoid the very thing you’re describing.

Get a barn and nail them to the rafters.

return to the DMV. Where I live its a requirement.

In NY you have to turn them into DMV
I have seen people get tickets for old plates cause of no registered insurance associated with them

You could always keep them and make them into something cool. Like fold up the sides and use as a napkin holder.

chaosrob has the right idea…Keep ‘em in tact for the next ten or twenty years and then sell ‘em to a classic car restorer….
