How do I scrap a car?!

(Possibly the wrong thread, sorry)

Following gearbox failure the Scenic is officially dead. If it were just the gearbox I'd consider a fix, but there are other transmission/drive niggles that'll need sorting out sooner rather than later, and it's not getting any younger or less beaten up.

The RAC have deposited it on my driveway, and it's a non-runner. I've cancelled the insurance and removed the tax disc, but the rest of it's a bit confusing.

When I apply for a road tax refund do I need to SORN it, even if it's only going to be here for a few more days? The directgov website is clear as mud.

Haven't spoken to anyone about removing it. Am I likely to actually receive some money for the car, given that it needs collection?

Is there a difference between breakers and scrappers, or are they all the same people? The main reason I ask is that, if it's being taken for metals rather than car parts, then I'll put it in 'The Marketplace' for a couple of days to see if anyone wants to come to sunny Lewisham SE14 and swap out light lenses, wheels, seats, small engine bay bits, etc etc etc...
