Junk My Car Now in Calgary is committed to keeping the world environmental friendly. When it comes to junk car removal, we use eco-friendly ways of recycling. Many people never think about what will happen to their vehicle once it is removed from their location for recycling. This is a fast breakdown of the primary vehicle components and the overall benefits of people inside the community recycling their vehicles.
Many cars and trucks are recycled every year that can be used to produce about 13 million new automobiles annually. The steel from six recycled cars is sufficient to build a new home using steel framing. For the recycling process, Junk My Car Now sends your old vehicle to a facility that has the required equipment to recycle the scrap metal into steel that is reusable.
A single gallon of motor oil can be used to contaminate one million gallons of water and antifreeze itself can be a giant killer of aquatic life if it breaks down. Used automotive fluids contain high levels of heavy metals that include lead which can damage the nervous system of both humans and animals. The possible hazards can be prevented by recycling. In addition to these, reusable motor oil can be used in the petroleum industry or as an energy source in power plants.
Tires constantly fill up landfills and eventually wear down into hazardous chemicals that can seep into the community's water supply. When the tires are recycled, however, they go through a process called vulcanization - a curing process where sulphur is safely added to the rubber allowing the tire to easily break down and shred mechanically. The rubber from the tires is broken down to many different sizes that can be reused by a variety of industries. Recycled tires can also become Tire-Derived Fuel which is used in numerous civil engineering projects such as erosion control, landscaping or used as rubberized asphalt on community roads and running tracks.
Serious health issues can happen to people in the community because automotive batteries contain hazardous wastes. During the recycling process, various materials such as plastic, lead, and rubber are separated from the battery. The acid in the battery is neutralized, cleaned, and released into the water supply.
