The Enviromental Choice
It may not seem like a monumental choice to re-use good quality parts from another vehicle, but the resulting savings in energy, raw materials and pollution is astronomical.
By using Green Recycled Parts, you'll be helping to sustain a modern global recycling industry that reclaims over 12 million vehicles across North America annually.
Auto recycling is the ultimate environmental choice. No other product on earth is recycled more than an automobile.
Not only does it keep a flood of dangerous toxins from being released into our ground and water, it prevents unnecessary use of valuable landfill. By reducing the need for new parts to be manufactured, you'll be preserving scarce natural resources and cutting down on the resulting pollution.
Automotive Recycling Facts
Over 80% of the entire vehicle by weight is reused, re-manufactured or recycled.
Recycled parts save an estimated 80 million barrels of oil annually that would be required to produce new replacement parts.
Auto recycling provides about 40% of the ferrous metal for the scrap processing industry across North America.
Substituting low-sulphur scrap metal for high-sulphur raw ore can reduce a steel mill's air pollution by as much as 86% and water pollution by 76%.
The amount of toxic oils and fluids safely reclaimed by auto recyclers is equivalent to eight Exxon Valdez disasters every year!
