Why Should I Scrap My Car?

Vehicle recycling can be bittersweet and evoke a mix of emotions. Your reliable (or maybe not so reliable!) companion has probably seen you through many adventures and you may be sad to have to send it to the big scrapyard in the sky. Here at Robcliffe, we make the process of scrap car recycling as simple as possible and will alleviate any concerns you may have.

As we all try to take a greener, more environmentally friendly approach to our lives, recycling is becoming the norm. Scrap car recycling is highly beneficial to the environment; the dismantling of unwanted cars yields spare parts where available and reduces the amount of waste sent to landfill. Once spare parts and hazardous materials have been removed, scrap cars are crushed and the metal is recycled. As cars typically comprise approximately 65% steel and iron this has a big impact when it comes to mining for new metal ores. Less mining is required thereby protecting our natural resources. As mining uses up more energy than recycling, you can rest assured that scrapping your car is positively beneficial to the environment.
