Vehicle Rec

Vehicle Recycling

Each year, more than 12 million cars are decommissioned in the United States. These vehicles are often dismantled piece by piece for use on other vehicles or sold for parts. Before you know it, you’ve got a partial vehicle body taking up space. Rather than letting it end up in a landfill, recycle it for an environmentally conscious solution to your problems — an outcome you can feel good about.

Each year, nearly 25 million tons of automobile materials are recycled globally — that’s enough to fill the Cowboys’ football stadium almost 11 times, or roughly enough to create 13 million new vehicles. Nearly 80% of a car can be recycled (although, not all that is metal), and vehicle recycling is the single most recycled consumer product in the world and accounts for nearly 40% of all the ferrous metals that are supplied to smelters across the United States.

Aside from the metals, car batteries, windows, and tires can also be recycled. If you’ve got a car that you think is worthless based on its condition or function, you have a great opportunity to recycle it. Contact us to find out more about recycling your junk car.

What Happens MOBILE

What Happens When Cars Get Recycled?

The metal recycling process is an extensive one that begins with the collection process. Junk cars, scrap metal, and other sources of recyclable materials are gathered at a collection point — like DMV Recycling. Scrappers then sort and separate the metal into ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Next, the metals have to be processed by shredding and then melted into either blocks or sheets. The melting process can take a matter of minutes or several hours, depending on the metals being melted. Next, the metals go through a purification process to ensure it is free of contaminants. This is usually done via electrolysis. Finally, the metal clocks or sheets are solidified and can be shaped into new products.

When junk cars are recycled, they have enough metal to make several other products or even be used to make a new car. The great part is, metals can be recycled over and over again without losing their strength or efficiency. Curious to know how much your car can help or what it is worth in terms of scrap metal?

reasons to recycle MOBILE

Reasons to Recycle Your Car

Aside from the nice cash return, recycling your junk car has many other benefits, including reuse in other industries and helping to protect the environment. Metals and other materials that are used to make vehicles are collected from natural non-renewable resources. When you recycle your car, the materials can be either restored and reused, or the materials can be recycled and used in other applications. Some industries that use recycled scrap metal include aircraft, appliances, plumbing, and ductwork.

Recycling scrap metal in cars helps prevent new materials being mined, produces fewer greenhouse gases, and creates jobs in the recycling and manufacturing industries. As we mentioned previously, each 25 million tons of recycled vehicles is enough to produce 13 million more vehicles, without mining or using new resources. When you recycle, you help protect the environment, stimulate the economy, line your wallet, and create new vehicles, all at the same time. Plus, what else would you do with a junk car that doesn’t run?

Alternatives MOBILE

Alternatives to Recycling Your Junk Car

Recycling your junk car is the most lucrative and environmentally conscious way to dispose of your junk car. If you haven’t been convinced yet, let’s quickly discuss some alternatives to recycling your junk car. You could:

Donate the vehicle. This is a great option if the car is in good shape or still runs, you own it outright, and you just don’t want to deal with the hassle of selling it. For most of us, this is not the case, and donating junk cars that are in poor condition or that have little hope of ever running again are typically disposed of by the agency you donate it to, and they use the revenue from recycling it to purchase more goods.

Abandon it. Each year, more than 2 million vehicles are abandoned or “thrown away.” These vehicles are left to rot — and they do. Once a vehicle has been burned, suffers water damage, or has been left sitting and exposed to the elements, it reduces the amount of materials that can be recycled, in addition to skipping the purification process. The purification process helps ensure that harmful heavy metals and vehicle fluids aren’t left to pollute the area that the vehicle is abandoned in. Please do not simply abandon your car or attempt to dispose of it.

Scrap it yourself. If you are a professional car mechanic and can safely disassemble the vehicle, by all means, we support this decision. However, it is important to note that if you decommission and disassemble the vehicle yourself, you’ll be able to reuse, recycle, or sell piece by piece, which can be more time consuming and less cost effective than simply recycling it with a professional scrap metal recycling company like DMV Recycling.

So, how does it work?

It is difficult for individuals to recycle cars themselves, as the car has to be dismantled. Some parts can be salvaged, some scrapped for raw materials, and others recycled. At DMV Recycling, our licensed recyclers handle all of this, ensuring that the maximum amount of parts are recycled, meaning less natural resources are mined. Because we do this for a living, we can ensure maximal recycling and are efficient at the process.
The vehicle is first assessed for its parts and remaining components’ values — this is where your quote and cash come from. Fluids are drained, valuable and recyclable parts are removed, then the skeleton is crushed and shipped to an industrial mill where the metallic parts can be melted down and reused. Parts that were removed can either be sold for reuse, sent to companies that specialize in parts rebuilding, or recycled for materials.

Call or email us with your vehicle details and get a custom quote. Next, we can negotiate safe and efficient pickup. Once all documents have been processed and evaluations completed, you’ll get cash for your junk car. It really is that simple. Contact us to get rid of your junk car.
