Spring is as great a time as any to start thinking of cleaning up the house, the yard, and while we’re at it – why not consider cleaning up the earth too! To help motivate you, we want to share ‘Ways Recycling Your Auto Helps to Save the Earth’. Because, no matter what, cars, trucks and all automobiles in-between will have an “end of life”, and some kind of plan will need to be in place to dispose of them.
Whether that’s trading your vehicle in while it’s still running condition, or recycling it after it has driven its last mile, both serve a purpose for your wallet as well as the earth.
Ways Recycle Your Auto Helps
Recycle Your Auto ensures hazardous materials are kept out of the earth, and keep harmful pollutants out of the soil and water too by disposing of your vehicle properly.
The steel recycled from your auto becomes a useful steel product again – which is one of the most recycled materials out there!
In addition, there are a variety of benefits to the earth when you recycle your auto, which include:
- Saving nearly 85 million barrels of oil annually that would have been used to manufacture new automotive parts
- Keeping harmful materials such as oil, transmission fluid, coolant, power steering fluid and brake fluid out of soil and ground water
- Being a part of the solution in energy consumption …recycling metal means less metal is mined for
- Keeping mercury out of the earth, which is a bio-accumulative toxin that is a contaminant that does not readily breakdown, making it detrimental to the ecosystem and wildlife
These areas alone are a HUGE help to the earth, keeping it clean and reducing energy consumption from many different angles.
So whether you have an unwanted vehicle or farming equipment you wish to get rid of on your property, now is a great time to do so, and earn cash in the process. Not only will you make money from recycling your vehicle with us, you can also feel good knowing that all the parts of your vehicle will be recycled, and mother nature will receive the maximum possible benefits!
