Get Rid of Your Old Vehicles with Scrap Car Recycling
Do you have a car you no longer need? Perhaps it doesn’t run anymore or it’s an eyesore and you just need it off your property. No matter what condition it’s in, scrapping it and having the parts recycled can be an excellent option. This gives you the chance to get rid of the car and helps the environment. Scrap car recycling is only available in some areas right now, so call us today to confirm we are offering it in your area.
Scrap Car Disposal – How it Works
We make it as easy as possible to get rid of your old vehicle. Simply give us a call and rent a dumpster. When it arrives, you’ll drive the car into the dumpster and we’ll come to pick it up for you. We’ll handle the rest from there, so you don’t have to worry about the vehicle any further.
After we have picked up the vehicle, we’ll take it apart and recycle as many parts as possible from it. Then, we’ll crush the rest of it, which is only a tiny amount of the whole vehicle. We handle all of this for you, so you don’t have to worry about any of the process, especially not having to take apart, price, and sell the individual parts of the vehicle. You just give us a call today and your vehicle will be picked up and recycled fast.
What Parts Can be Reused?
Almost 90% of any vehicle can be recycled and reused by someone else. Parts that can be reused elsewhere without worry often include the tiers, windshield and windows, batteries, radiators, hoses, seats and belts, filters, mats, and even the transmission. Even parts that don’t seem like they could be used in another vehicle, like worn-down tires, can actually be recycled and used in something else.
Recycling allows almost all of the vehicle to be reused for another purpose, which means your vehicle doesn’t just end up in a landfill taking up space and leaking chemicals that are bad for the environment. It allows almost every part to be reused in some way, so you can get rid of the old vehicle and do something great for the environment at the same time.
How the Car Parts are Recycled
Once we receive the vehicle, we start the recycling process right away. We will start with a detailed inspection to determine what parts of the vehicle may be able to be refurbished and sold to someone looking for discount auto parts. We’ll then drain all fluids from the vehicle and start removing any of the parts that can be resold.
We will remove and clean any parts that can be sold to be used on another vehicle as well as components that can be recycled in other ways. Tires, for instance, can be sold to somewhere that uses old tires to create playground mulch. Batteries can be rebuilt into other batteries and engines and transmissions can be rebuilt and used in another vehicle. Once we’ve removed everything that can be recycled, the remaining parts of the car are crushed into a tiny box, about the size of a microwave.
What Kinds of Cars Can be Scrapped?
Almost any car can be scrapped and recycled, even if it’s no longer running. A vehicle with an engine that no longer works, for instance, can be scrapped and the engine may be able to be rebuilt and used. An older vehicle might have signs of rust that make it unsafe to drive, but a lot of the parts can be recycled. Even vintage or very old vehicles can be taken apart and many of the components can be recycled, even if a lot of the parts may no longer be common in today’s vehicles. There may be others who have a vintage or old car and would like to purchase the parts for their vehicle.
No matter how old your vehicle is or what condition it’s in, we can recycle most of the vehicle and help reduce the impact on the environment while still making it as easy as possible for you to get rid of the vehicle. If you no longer need your vehicle, just give us a call to rent a dumpster, drive the vehicle in, and we’ll handle the rest from there.
Benefits of Scrap Car Recycling for the Environment
If you’re thinking about recycling your vehicle, you may be wondering what kind of impact this will have on the environment. It actually can help in many different ways. Vehicles that are recycled will not end up in the landfill, so they won’t just sit around for years. All of the fluids in the vehicle are dealt with appropriately, so there’s no worry about hazardous materials leaking into the ground at the landfill.
When an older vehicle is recycled, that means one less car on the road that’s less efficient than newer vehicles and that may create more pollution than the newer vehicles. The metals can be reused to produce new vehicles after being cleaned and melted down. Plus, many of the parts can be reused by other drivers, so it helps reduce the number of new vehicle parts that need to be created every year. This can lead to saving nearly 85 million barrels of oil that would otherwise be needed to create the new car parts.
Recycling is not only great for the environment, but it’s also a great way to get rid of your old vehicle and make sure you don’t have to worry about it anymore. We make recycling easy, so you don’t have to worry about taking the car apart on your own or finding buyers for the different parts. When you want to recycle your car with us, you’ll simply drive it into a dumpster we provide, and we handle all of the rest. If you’re thinking about recycling your scrap car, give us a call today to learn more or to schedule a time for the dumpster to be delivered.
