There are many reasons a car owner chooses to stop using their vehicle. Whether it is too old and has break down, failed a MoT or needs expensive repairs, or simply because its emissions have become too damaging to the environment. Regardless of reason, there is still one last use with multiple benefits the car can have.
Scraping cars is nothing new but it is definitely now more imperative than ever. In the context of a climate emergency and equally economic uncertainty, the industry is playing an ever increasing role in tackling issues in the U.S., Canada and beyond.
Raising more awareness of car recycling
A waste management company servicing Toronto and surrounding areas is committed to raising awareness and understanding of scrap car removal. “There are some myths that need to be busted around car scraping and the most pressing one is that many people believe we just pile up cars in a junk yard and let them rot there, further damaging the environment. This could not be any more false. Secondly, we believe there is not enough understanding of the value having an old car professionally removed. And the facts are undeniable. Yearly, around 25 million tons of materials are recycled from old vehicles. This is an enormous benefit”, explained a spokesperson for Towing and Scrap Car Removal.
In addition to this, the recycled materials help manufacture another 13 million new vehicles in the United States and Canada which under new legislations are more fuel efficient and play a key role in reducing emissions.
Recycling cars like recycling plastic
“More and more people – and for a good reason are recycling their plastic, metals, paper and cardboard. But we’re asking: what about that old car that has been sitting in the driveway or the garage for ages and has no use for anyone? We need to get people into the mindset that recycling cars is like recycling plastic. There are so many parts of a car that can be recycled and sometimes even reused, even windshields and car batteries!” – added the spokesperson.
In addition to this, there is another important factor to consider which relates to road safety, according to the company. Maintaining roads and highways clear reduces the risk of accidents, particularly in countries such as Canada where there are many diverse types of climates. Toronto has a semi-continental which means summers are usually hot and humid and winters are snowy and harsh, all of these increasing the risk of car accidents.
