Saving The Environment One Car At A Time

Saving The Environment One Car At A Time

It is not uncommon to find the local salvage yard filled with different car models. While this may seem like a waste, an extensive process goes into ensuring that whenever possible, all 30,000 parts of each car are put to the best use. 

So don’t be so worried about the environment when you sell your car for scraps. As you will see in this infographic below, lots of junkyards are protecting the environment by making sure that they recycle as many car parts as possible. Parts like the battery, electronics, glass, plastics, rubber, fabric, steel and aluminum, can and will be used in other ways, such as being turned into fuel for cement production and asphalt. This means that none of those components will get to the landfill, significantly reducing the amount of waste that ends up there. Considering how long it takes some of these components to degrade, that is very positive. 

Aside from making extra cash for yourself, you will be doing the environment a big favor by selling your old car to a junkyard. By helping to reduce landfill waste harmful greenhouse gases are lowered, as are the levels of additional pollutants and chemicals released into the surrounding land and bodies of water.

Whichever way you look at it taking your car to the junkyard is a win-win situation. But to fully understand what goes into it, you will need some vital information, all of which can be found in the infographic.
