Recycling can seem like a chore to some and a rightful duty to others – but no matter what way you look at it, we wanted you to know about the ‘Ways You Give Back When You Recycle Your Auto’. Whether these points will help push you in the direction of recycling your auto, or make you feel good for already being a conscious contributor – Recycle Your Auto thought they were worth a mention!
Recycling Your Auto Gives Back to the Earth
Did you know that in North America nearly 85 million barrels of oil are SAVED from not having to create new auto parts when you recycle your auto? This means you are immediately helping the environment, keeping a massive amount of fossil fuels from having to be used needlessly.
Recycling Your Auto Keeps Harmful Toxins Out of the Earth
Your auto contains oil, transmission fluid, coolant, as well as power steering and brake fluid, and all these fluids eventually break down into the earth if left to their own corrosive devices. In Addition, mercury can be found in many auto parts, which also makes its way into the earth, polluting soil and water needlessly.
Recycling Your Auto Prevents Pollution
One liter of engine oil can pollute as much as one million liters of water if it isn’t properly recycled – hence, the uproar about the BC Pipeline. A story for another day perhaps!
