How Car Recycling Works
Recycling a car has many steps and is pretty time consuming. Many people wonder how car recycling works. There are many steps to the process and we will explain them.
Removal of All Fluids
The removal of all of the fluids is generally one of the first step in recycling a car. Most of these fluids are toxic and dangerous for the environment. This is why it is one of the most important to handle first. All of the fluids are removed and separated and sent to the proper recycling station.
Even though a vehicle may not be “road worthy”, there are still many parts that can be used to repair another vehicle. Even parts like motors, transmissions, starters, etc. are often sent out to remanufactures to be rebuilt rather than fabricating new ones altogether. Batteries have an over 99% recycling rate.
