How To Dispose And Recycle Car Number Plates?

There are many reasons why someone would want to dispose of their number plates for example, if you buy a new car, scrapping cars or have ones that have been sitting in the garage for a long time. Nowadays it's important to use the correct practices when disposing of number plates as they hold the personal information of the owner that can be accessed by wrongdoers and used for criminal activity.
