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.

Reusable Parts

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.

Done by Hand

Most of the work is done by hand. This is the separation of the glass and plastics being striped. This is done when it is feasible and not so time consuming. These pre-separated part are also valuable as parts alone or recycled individually.

Crushing and Shredding

Once most of the useful parts are removed the vehicle is then sent to be shredded or crushed. Recycling the steel uses around 75% less energy than to manufacture new steel altogether. This is definitely a boost for the environment.
