Statistics show that one in twenty used cars today aren't recycled properly and unfortunately are allowed to return to nature, thus heavily contributing to the destruction of our environment.

The Recycle Your Autos Team works hard toward supporting a nationwide effort to help our environment and to green America by cleaning up industrial auto waste. We can help you play your part in the revitalization of our environment by recycling with very little time and effort required on your behalf. Whether you live in a busy urban area or rural setting, it is imperative that you do your part.

Why is it important to recycle your old car?

Recycling an old vehicle helps to avoid costly problems with unsightly clutter.
For example, US taxpayers are charged $500 million every year just to clear the litter along state highways.
What is even more important, recycling your old car eliminates the risk of polluting the earth, water and air pollution with potentially dangerous elements as they break down and contaminate our environment.

Recycling processes used materials into new products in order to prevent the waste of potentially useful materials.

It reduces the consumption of fresh and raw materials.

Recycling helps to reduce energy usage.

Scrapping your old car reduces air pollution (from incineration) and water pollution (from landfills) by reducing the need for "conventional" waste disposal and lower greenhouse gas emissions.

Some of the recyclable car materials include paper, metal, plastic, textiles, electronics, rubber, etc.

What happens to your car once it is removed to be recycled?

Here is a quick rundown of some vehicle components and the benefits of recycling your old car.

Auto Bodies

Every year, the equivalent of 13 million new automobiles can be made with the number of cars and trucks that are recycled.
Six recycled cars yields enough steel to construct a new steel frame house.
Using our service is a great solution to getting rid of your vehicle. Your car will go to a facility with the means to properly recycle the scrap into reusable steel!

Car Batteries

Automotive batteries are full of hazardous waste. With improper disposal and recycling, they pose a serious health and environmental risk.
When recycled, materials such as Plastic, Rubber and Lead are effectively separated from each battery and used in other applications. Caustic and poisonous battery acid is neutralized, cleaned and safely released into the water supply.

Car Fluids

It has been estimated that one gallon of motor oil can contaminate one million gallons of water. So, capturing all the oil from a carís engine is of utmost importance.
Antifreeze, another major component in automobiles, can kill aquatic life once it breaks down.
High levels of heavy metals including lead (which are found in used automotive fluids) can cause nervous system damage to humans and animals.
Recycling prevents these hazards from happening.
Other automotive chemicals, including transmission fluid, power steering fluid brake fluid and windshield washer fluid can all be reconditioned to become a useful new product. For instance, reclaimed motor oil can be used in power plants or in the petroleum industry.


In 2004, roughly 75% of the tires that went to landfills in California were diverted from burial. The remaining tires, however, contributed unnecessarily to landfills. Here, they harbor disease and eventually break down into hazardous chemicals that potentially seeps into our water supply. When properly recycled, however, they go through what is known as Vulcanization. This is a curing process where sulfur is added to the rubber, facilitating the chemical breakdown and mechanical shredding of each tire. The broken-down rubber can then be used by a number of different industries. Civil Engineering projects may use vulcanized tires for projects such as erosion control, landscaping, or used as rubberized asphalt on roads and running tracks. Tires can also be used for what is known as a tire-derived fuel, which is a low sulfur, high-heating fuel.
