I too think of a 'waste transfer station' as something else. They don't
store stuff for long - moving it on fairly quickly. Say less than a week.
A 'junkard' would usually have things stored for quite some time. Save
over a year. They sell the individual parts to people who want those
parts for use rather than scrapping them. What ever parts that are not
wanted .. those go to the recyclers.
A 'junkard' can be for cars, trucks, motorcycles, earth movers,
aeroplanes ... I think that needs to be specified.
They go by various names depending on where you are .. 'boneyeard',
for example I'd tag them;
