Did you know that Automotive Recyclers are the Original Recyclers?
Did you know that approximately 10 million vehicles are recycled annually?
If it’s the end of the road for your car please make sure you dispose of it in an environmentally safe way, here’s why:
When you recycle steel you are saving energy and natural resources. Every year the steel industry saves enough energy to power about 18 million houses for a year!
Recyclers of end-of-life vehicles save an estimated 85 million barrels of oil annually that can be used to manufacture other parts
Recycling metal uses about 74 percent less energy than making metal.
Recycling your car keeps 11 million tons of steel and 800,000 non-ferrous metals out of landfills and back in consumer use.
Some vehicles that were made before 2003 contained mercury auto switches that were used for convenience lighting and anti-lock braking systems. Recyclers remove and recycle this mercury before these vehicles are shredded to prevent the mercury from escaping into the environment.
At Andy’s Auto Wreckers in London, we capture and recycle all fluids. Gas tanks, batteries and tires are all removed and are recycled, reused or disposed of appropriately. We collect and remit all mercury switches. We even recycle all our paper and reuse as packing for shipping!
