Your car may be neglected a lot because it needs repair, which is costly. You hardly have any scope for getting it in working condition. Therefore, you decide to scrap it.
Car scrapping needs to adhere to the recycling acts. The car scrap yard in Colchester is popular around the locality because the recycling process is strictly followed.
Recycle metal scrap
Old car looks worthless, but in a junkyard, it is extremely valuable. It has plenty of scrap material, which is re-usable and people pay good cash for it.
Manufacturing new metals is a process, which uses limited non-renewable resources like oil. Reuse of scrap metal from old cars means less use of limited resources. Scrap metal usage is reported to save 85 million oil barrels each year. This is a gigantic eco-friendly effect!
Aluminium and steel can be found in transmission fluid cooler, engine heads, radiator and other parts. Platinum group metals are also found in cars, which are very valuable.
Toxic substance disposal
Vehicle includes fluid and chemicals, which are toxic. Substances like brake fluid, power steering fluid, battery acid, anti-freeze, mercury, and sodium azide need to be disposed properly or can cause soil and water contamination. This can harm plants and wildlife. Humans can suffer from respiratory, skin and eye issues.
Reuse salvageable parts
Spare and good parts can be reused. Check battery, axle, transmission, radiator, tires, etc. If they are salvageable they can be reused in other vehicles.
If you allow the car to sit in the driveway without repairs, it will keep on depreciating. So, make a call to a nearby car removal services and free your property space. When you buy another car make sure it is eco-friendly!
