Yank-A-Part Auto Wrecking is sporting new owners and a refreshed yard for auto parts. The 10-acre scrap yard changed ownership several months ago.

Poulsbo’s Yank-A-Part cleans up with eco-friendly approach

POULSBO — There are Chevrolets. There are Hondas, Fords, Nissans and Toyotas. Rows of them sit, some with wheels, others still emblazoned with bumper stickers and window decals. They line 10 acres, many of them facing one another with their hoods ajar, seeming in mid-gulp. This is Yank-A-Part, a self-help wrecking yard that bucks the go-to cemetery metaphor. Instead it appears like a well-kempt candy store for car hounds, where faded machines sit ripe for the picking, sorting and sifting of usable parts.
