Is called scrapping to the act and the result of scrapping : take apart, undo, cut or ruin something. The concept is also used to name the set of elements resulting from scrapping some object and the site where cars and others are scrapped vehicles .

For example: “My uncle is engaged in the sale of scrap parts”, "The police discovered a scrapping where stolen auto parts were sold", “The neoliberal regime caused the scrapping of the country's productive apparatus”.

The idea scrapping is usually used in relation to dismantling of cars, motorcycles, trucks, vans and boats . Scrapping is the activity and the place where it takes place. Scrapping can be legal (intended to reuse or discard certain components that are part of the vehicles) or illegal (when stolen cars are dismantled to sell their parts).

It is important to establish that scrapyards have two clearly defined functions. On the one hand, they are responsible for dismantling what are the vehicles that are discarded by their owners, because they no longer work or because they have many years. On the other hand, they become great places to find spare parts for cars, motorcycles, scooters or vans, for example, at much cheaper prices than in a workshop or in an official spare parts house.

In Spain the existence of scrapping and even the operation of these is very regulated. Hence, by law the obligation of these places is established not only to recycle the components that are possible but also to remove the waste to the sites authorized for this purpose.

It also includes the procedure that these scrappers have to carry out to process what is the documentation of destruction of vehicles.

The notion is also used with respect to symbolic, abstract or difficult to quantify issues. The authorities of a country , to cite a case, they can develop a plan to achieve the scrapping a terrorist group . In this context, the term is linked to the government's intention to dismantle the band so that it cannot continue operating.

Scrapping a company On the other hand, it consists in the sale of its assets. Suppose the owner of a company decides to sell most of the machines that allow him to produce. It also dismisses 70% of employees and stops renting several buildings that the firm used. It can be said, therefore, that the owner is driving the scrapping of the company.

In the same way, we cannot ignore the existence of a book entitled "American Scrapping", which is written by Bonnie Jo Campbell. It consists of a set of stories in which the protagonists are different characters from what would be the working class of Michigan.

They are people who, although they may have dreams, are not able to reach them or leave behind the life they lead, face day to day as they can, stand out for being extravagant in many of their behaviors and assume the life they have had to live surrounded Of a decadent world.
