The auto recycling industry is an important piece in building a greener earth. When buying used auto parts, it reduces the need to manufacture them, thereby reducing our carbon footprint and greenhouse emissions.
Recycled steel uses less energy to take back to a useable product than to produce new. This results in more energy savings, less air pollution, water pollution, and water consumption.
Steel recycling comes full circle and is probably the only industry where even the equipment used to produce the product will be recycled. Unlike many other materials, steel can be recycled over and over, with no loss of quality.
Your vehicle is likely the most recyclable product you own. Almost every component can be removed and sold. The hulk of the vehicle that is remaining can then be sent out to a steel mill where it is shredded and converted into reusable material.
