Environmentally-friendly car recycling in Addiscombe
Do you care about the planet? As more and more of us become aware of our carbon footprint and ways in which we can help the environment, car recycling takes on even more importance. With around a million cars scrapped every year, car breaking and car scrap is more regulated than ever and with good reason. Here at Car Scrap Surrey, we will ensure that your car is scrapped in Addiscombe in the most eco-friendly way.
There are huge benefits to recycling cars. When you think of recycling you may think of paper, plastics, or metal cans but there are many large-scale items in cars that can be reused or re-purposed. This includes everything from car tyres that can be turned into rubberised asphalt for playground surfaces and car mats that can simply be reused.
Responsible vehicle recycling is very important and at our Authorised Treatment Facility (ATF), we will process your car, so less waste goes to landfills, natural resources are saved, and the natural world is more protected. We follow strict guidelines set out in The End-of-Life Vehicles Regulations 2003, where all vehicles are de-polluted before any recycling process starts. This removes all toxic fluids, such as anti-freeze, brake fluid, and fuel, so it does not seep into the environment. Salvageable parts are then taken out of the car before it is crushed and put through a specialist shredder. From there, all metals and other materials are processed for further recycling.
