How Does Auto Recycling Reuse Parts?
We remove all the parts of the vehicle that can be reused. Vehicles that have been in auto accidents and ones that are well beyond repair have the opportunity to be recycled. Even the worst of condition vehicles will have parts that are recyclable.
A great way to help the environment is taking the reusable parts and putting them on other cars. Recycling auto parts is a good way to keep unnecessary items out of our landfills and to save the resources and energy it would take to build the parts again.
Does Auto Recycling Create Less Waste?
The pure mass of an individual car can be reduced by recycling parts. The environment is better off if we can limit the amount of mass we send to the landfills. Right now our landfills are already full of items that could have been recycled; by using parts from wrecked or disabled cars we can prevent them from overfilling these landfills.
If you have ever watched a car being crushed into a pancake on TV then you can see how taking out any reusable parts from the interior or exterior of a car can be beneficial in reducing the mass going into our overwhelming landfills. By recycling these parts it helps people who need reasonable priced auto parts and helps the environment at the same time.
What Can Be Recycled?
You may be surprised at how many items on a car can be recycled. Many parts of a car can be reused dependent on the condition of the part. Parts like a car stereo, door mirrors, tail lamps, door glass, and head lamps are often in perfect working order and can be reused in another vehicle. There are often a lot of drive train or suspension and other parts from under the hood that can be reused as well.
Parts can be repaired so they can be sold at a reasonable price. This is a win win, consumers get a good deal on car parts that are perfectly usable and the environment gets a break on decomposing these parts. Also, materials and energy are saved by not having to build as many new car parts. There are no losers with auto recycling.
Remember, if your car is on its last leg or your car has been totaled, there are still parts that others can use. On the other hand, if you are looking to find a reasonable price on parts, consider buying a recycled part.
