Q: Can a house owner throw away and old car that was left on property by not recent tenant but the one before the recent?

We have proof that we messaged him various times telling him to take the car and someone new moved in and still nothing now the recent tenant has moved out and again we are renting it out and the car was still here so we threw it away and someone called us saying they want their car. We were in the right to throw it away? This case is in Nebraska
