Any recycler that takes in a car and gives you scrap value is not going to pay for rubbish inside unless that happens to also be stuff you can weigh in as well.

My next car is a 1996 Passat 1.9TDI Estate ( to fill in whilst I sort some bits on my Jag ).
It's costing £175 of our other Senior Tech, has about 6 months MOT.
I will save that in fuel costs in about 4 months. And once the MOT is out I will either Ebay it as is, MOT it and maybee keep using it till insurance time or flog it with MOT and probably get 150-200..

What about donating it to the local college that offers auto courses.. Then when they've done with it - it their problem.

Get a good old car and it just won't die. My old P reg Pug 306 used to sail through MOT after MOT.
As for finding somewhere to sell it, try Facebook. There are lots of regional sale sites springing up for decent cars and bangers, like this one:

Got myself a new unused bosal towbar for the above passat for £51, so the spend on it is now £226 lol... Will save that by using it instead of the Petrol Galaxy for a couple of road trips with the trailer tent. My anual trip or bi anual costs near £200 a time in fuel in the galaxy.
The only thing the OP's little festa does not have going for it is the engine conversion which makes it a modified car.
