Some believe that the car wrecks should be preserved as part of Swedish 20th century history, while others point out that the cars are gradually leaking toxins into the bog and thereby creating an environmental problem. In 2003, the County Administrative Board in Kronoberg County carried out an investigation of the scrap to find out how serious the environmental problems were and made the assessment that in addition to scrap metal in the ground, there is also a moderate level of contamination from leaking petroleum products.[source required]

The scrap is protected under a 49-year planning permission as a veteran crushing plant, issued in the late 1990s. [source needed]
