Environment-Friendly Auto Recycling Services in Prince George
The Auto Recycling industry has come a long way. In an environmentally aware age, no industry contributes more to keeping hazardous materials out of landfills and reusing parts that take an abundance of energy and resources to make. The automobile is the most recycled consumer product in the world today. In fact, 95 percent of retired autos are processed for recycling each year. Thanks to advances in technology, everything from floor mats and instrument panels to upholstery, aluminum and steel can be recycled for use in a new automobile or another consumer product.
Recyclers provide you, the consumer, with low-cost, high-quality used auto parts using modern business practices and very strict environmental regulations. They are reducing insurance rates, your repair bills and an astounding amount of pollution. Recyclers purchase "end-of-life" and accident automobiles and ensure that they are dismantled and retired in a way that protects the environment.
Each vehicle that is purchased by an auto recycler goes through a rigorous process designed to maximize the amount of material that can be reclaimed and to minimize the environmental impact. The vehicle that you are driving today will be a source of numerous recyclable materials tomorrow. Vehicle parts offer recycling opportunities for materials such as steel, aluminum, plastics, antifreeze, and batteries, as well as whole parts such as tires, seats, engines, and alternators. Below you will find some information from the Automotive Recyclers Association of Canada's website, a great resource for learning more about the industry.
