Salvage Yard Benefits for the Environment
March 26th, 2021 | Posted in Uncategorized
- Limiting Manufacturing – Manufacturing new car parts uses nonrenewable resources and creates pollution. By using recycled car parts, you help reduce the demand for new parts, which can be one of the most helpful things you can do for the planet.
- Reducing Waste – Reduce, reuse, and recycle are the basic fundamentals of the green movement. Reusing old car parts reduces waste and prevents those parts from ending up in the landfill.
- Recycling Metal – When cars are stripped of their usable parts, a large hunk of metal is left behind. But junkyards don’t just dump that in a landfill. They sell the metal to be melted down and recycled.
- Preventing Fluid Leaks – The mere existence of these salvage yards keeps cars out of the landfill, which helps to prevent oil, gas, coolant, and other fluid leaks. These fluids can seriously harm the environment by seeping into soil and polluting local waters.
