ENVIRONMENTAL BENEFITS OF SCRAPPING VEHICLES
What is scrap car removal all about? It's about many things, all at once. From saving our fragile environment from poisonous, toxic deposits from vehicles to the circular economy that recycling a vehicle involves. An old junk car poses a real threat to the environment. What threat you might ask? Well, consider that an average vehicle contains the following:
- 4-15 Liters of Engine Oil
- 4-15 Liters of Transmission Oil
- 2 Liters of Power Steering Fluid
- 32 oz of Refrigerant
- 1-2 liters of brake fluid
- 1-5 liters of Oil in the Transfer Case (AWD/4x4 Vehicles)
- 3-5 liters of Oil in the Differential (Multiple by 2 on AWD/4x4 Vehicles)
- 1-3 Liters of Windshield Washer Fluid
- Mercury-containing switches on vehicles manufactured prior to 2003
Consider the above, that vehicles can have 17-50 liters of fluids hazardous to the environment. You would want those fluids seeping onto your driveway and contaminating the land you live on. The cost of decontaminating a property could be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars.
The sooner you scrap your old car, the better it will be for everyone around. Trust the scrap car removal to the professionals at Auto Heaven.
