I'd prefer a "feature" tag, rather than a refinement of the landus
What about man_made=scrap_yard?

Not sure if it could also be considered a kind of works, e.g. we might see
it as kind of a recycling plant?
Shall we distinguish places which only do cars? We could also add a tag
combination of
shop=car_parts and
second_hand=only ?  --> http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:second_hand

Other scrap yards might generally buy and sell all kinds of old machinery /
scrap metal.
