Basic #car maintenance frequently requires the
removal and replacement of old or worn out parts.
Parts damaged in accidents may also need
replacing, or even entire cars if the damage is too
extensive. Instead of tossing your used or broken
car parts in the trash, or sending them away for
safe disposal, consider whether or not they are
recyclable.
Recycling reduces the amount of waste building up
in landfills and harm to the earth’s environment.
While cars already contribute to increased smog in
crowded cities, some of their parts can be reused
in other vehicles or repurposed for other tasks.
Know how to make the most out of replacing a
vehicle and its components by looking at the 6
most recyclable car parts.
1. Oil and Oil Filters
Improperly discarded motor oil leads to
contaminated soil and water sources — and it’s
reusable. Oil only gets dirty and never actually
wears out. When replacing your oil, take your used
oil to a collection center or auto shop that recycles
its oil. The oil can be cleaned and reused as brand-
new oil.
Additionally, oil filters can be recycled. Each filter
contains approximately one pound of steel. If
taken to a recycling center that accepts them, the
filters are fully drained of excess oil and reused in
steel manufacturing. Remember to place the used
oil filter in a sealed plastic bag when giving it to an
accepting collection center.
2. Auto Glass
Broken windshields often pile up in landfills across
the United States because the glass component is
sealed between two layers of protective plastic.
However, technological developments have made
it easier to remove the recyclable glass, and many
windshield replacement companies partner with
recycling centers to repurpose the glass. There are
even companies aiming to reduce waste by
specializing in automotive glass recycling.
Automotive glass is versatile. It can be
transformed into fiberglass insulation, concrete
blocks, glass bottles, floor tiles, counters, worktops,
and jewelry. Even the plastic encasing the original
glass can be repurposed as carpet glue and other
applications.
3. Tires
Tires are nondegradable, so they take up a lot of
space at dumping sites if they’re not recycled.
Burning tires pollute the air with toxins and
produce a flammable runoff. Tires removed in good
condition can be reused on other vehicles or fixed
up and made into brand new tires. Scrap dealers
often see donated old tires as a valuable resource.
Tires that cannot be reused in any way can still be
recycled and repurposed as fuel, artificial
playground turf, and rubberized highway asphalt.
Bring old tires to the nearest recycling center to
combat the buildup of unnecessary waste.
4. Engine and Emission System Parts
Engines and several of their parts have great
longevity and can be remanufactured after
removal. Engines can be dismantled, cleaned,
reconditioned, and sold again for use in future
vehicles. Many mechanics will even rebuild
damaged or discarded engines with advanced
technology and materials to make them more
efficient and environmentally friendly. These
redone engines can yield a greener, low-cost
solution to car engine replacement.
Though some parts remain specific to certain car
models, spark plugs, transmissions, radiators, and
catalytic converters can be highly valuable to
manufacturers and have the potential for
repurposing.
5. Scrap Metal
Metal is one of the easiest materials to recycle. A
damaged or decommissioned car comes with
aluminum rims, doors and door handles, side
mirrors, headlight bezels, fenders, and steel
wheels. Every metal part on your car can be
melted down and turned into something else.
Scrap yards will weigh and price a car based off of
usability. Once specific parts are removed for
recycling or other forms of disposal, what’s left of
the vehicle will be crushed into unrecognizable
metal cubes.
6. Plastic Components
Though you may not think of it right away, cars
actually contain a significant amount of plastic.
Everything from dashboards to gas tanks are often
made from recyclable plastic material. Lights,
bumpers, and other interior features can be
separated from the rest of the car and shredded or
melted for conversion into new products.
Additionally, if they are still in good condition, they
can be sold to certain repair shops as replacement
pieces.
7. Batteries and Other Electronics
Car batteries and other electronics often contain
lead and other chemicals that can contaminate the
environment if dumped in a landfill. Many states
require auto shops to send old batteries back to
manufacturers or to recycling centers for safe
disposal. For car owners, many states also promote
a law that rewards people who exchange old
batteries for a new one.
Many car batteries are in a good and fully reusable
condition. If taken for recycling, the battery is put
through a hammermill and broken into small
pieces. These pieces flow to a container where the
heavier materials, like lead, sink to the bottom for
siphoning — leaving the plastic on top for removal.
The plastic gets melted into pellets and sold to
manufacturers to make into new battery cases.
The lead is melted down and eventually
repurposed as plates and other battery
components. Old battery acid gets converted into
sodium sulfate for use in detergent, glass, and
textiles. https://carpartsnigeria.com/blogdetails/406
