How does auto salvage help the environment?

These days people are looking for any ways to help save the environment. From metal straws and reusable grocery bags to eating vegan, there are a multitude of ways to benefit the planet. But did you know that rusty junker in your backyard could be used to help the environment also?


Cars are one of the most recycled items in the world because they are chock full of metals and materials that can be reused. That vehicle may not be any use to you anymore, but its parts can be put into other cars or the metals can be melted down and reused in construction, industry, and more!


If you let your car sit in the garage, or just drop it off at a nearby junk yard, you are wasting the potential of that vehicle and likely causing harm to the planet. The car can leak noxious fluids into the ground, further contribute to waste in our junk yards, and then manufacturers are forced to use new steel, rather than reusing perfectly good steel from your vehicle.


The best way to ensure your car is given a second life is to sell it to an auto salvage company that specializes in disposing of the toxic chemicals and then separating the various metals and parts so they can be reused. Steel or aluminum is easy to recycle, but a good salvage company also knows what to do with the tires, seats, and interior of the car. 


At Junk Car Traders, this is our bread and butter. We deal with vehicles in all stages of life every day, and know exactly how to get the most out of them so they can live on elsewhere. Our techs know how to take apart the body, engine, interior, and undercarriage and salvage any reusable materials. In this way, we help the planet and ensure these finite resources get another use. 


Selling your car to us is a win-win situation! Both your wallet and the planet will thank you. So what are you waiting for? The longer that junker sits in your backyard, the less value it holds. Call us now for the best offer at 855-959-1325.
