Recycled Car Parts And Cash For Scrap Metal In Adelaide
There are more than 17 million registered motor vehicles in Australia – that’s nearly one for every single person. When a vehicle comes to the end of its lifespan, it is therefore very important to make sure it is disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner.
Here at Metro Car Removals, we take car recycling very seriously – after all, it’s our job! We begin by dismantling the vehicle so that we can remove any spare parts that are in good working order. These are then sold through our spare parts service for use in other cars.
Once working parts are removed, we then drain the vehicle of any fluids (petrol, oil, brake fluid and so forth). We also remove any hazardous materials such as the battery, mercury, and sodium azide (this is the fuel used in airbag systems). These materials are disposed of correctly to reduce the environmental impact and risk of contamination.
With parts, fluids and hazardous materials removed, we are essentially left with the ‘shell’ of the car. That is crushed and passed on to a steel recycling company where it is melted down and reused in a vast range of products. At the end of our car recycling process, very little is left to go into the landfill. More than 75% of a vehicle can be recycled in some way or another, which is why cars remain one of the most recycled consumer products.
At Metro Car Removals, we dismantle vehicles in the best possible way using the appropriate tools, to minimise our environmental impact. If you have a car that you want removing, why not choose a company that offers an eco-friendly wrecking service? We collect cars from all over Adelaide and therefore provide car recycling for those in Gawler, Salisbury, Lonsdale and most other areas.
