We all hear that recycling can save the planet. Usually, the things that are discussed seems to be related to plastic, paper, and metal. Well, there is something else that we need to consider with respect to recycling too. That is automobiles.
How do you recycle an automobile? I am glad you asked.
There so many old cars, junk trucks, motorcycles and more. They are simply sitting around, taking up space and rusting. They are not providing any benefit and they can be very valuable.
Some might look at them and think they are worthless. On the contrary, these vehicles can provide a great deal of value in so many ways.
Finally, this vehicle is no longer a nuisance to the former owner. Instead it’s parts can be reused and the environment is saved as less metal is being thrown in another landfill. The way I see it, this is a three-way victory.
How is a Vehicle Recycled?
When we think of other things being recycled, there is a picture of the machine that takes the items we submitted and melts it all down. Once it comes out the other end, there is a supply of new material that is used to make other products.
Well, that is not quite how it works with automobiles when they are recycled. The way this happens is the parts that are on the recycled vehicle that still work are dismantled and can be used on same make and model of that vehicle.
Someone comes to ABCM’s wrecking yard and tells the clerk what they are looking for and considering the vehicle is there, the part that you are looking for may still be attached to the inventoried vehicle. The same vehicle can be the source of parts for many cars. This is what recycling a vehicle looks like. And of course the body and other heavy metal items get sent off to scrap metal recycling plants.

So, you may have a vehicle that is sitting in your garage or on your property. You can recycle it and the parts can serve others instead of rusting out in your possession and get paid to do so.

Depending on your relationship with this person, you could be paid part of the money that they get for recycling their old vehicle. This can even be something that you do part-time for money. Locating old vehicles and encouraging those that may not be aware of how to deal with them.
