Getting Your Old Car Recycled

cash for junk cars

It is important to honor what we have, and this applies to our life, our relationships and, the things we own. This means making the most of what we have, appreciating it, and when the time is right, saying goodbye to them. We will be limiting the discussion to just cars in this article, and where you can take your old car once it can no longer serve you. If you have an old car that is decaying away at your home, you can take it for auto recycling Toronto, and give it a proper sendoff, and let the parts that can be recycled find a new use.

Interestingly enough, almost 80% of a car can be recycled after it is dismantled. This means choosing to get your old car recycled is a more eco-friendly option, and you also get some quick cash in the process. The glass, car parts, engines, batteries, tires, and gas can all be recycled.

  • The first step is for the auto recycling place to inspect your car and determine whether it can be repaired or should just be recycled. If your car is still in good condition, they can just opt to repair and resell the car, and if they decide to recycle it, then we move to the next step.
  • The next step involves dismantling the car parts into separate parts and then draining all of the fluids like brake fluid, antifreeze and, so on. They will then remove the different components of your car.
  • Once your car parts are dismantled and cleaned, the recycling company will then resell the car parts to either local repair shops and mechanics or auto-part remanufacturers. This way the metal components and other intact components are re-used.
  • After all of the relevant car parts are dismantled and sold off, the remaining body of the car is then crushed and pressed into a small cube where it is then disposed of.
