Car Recycling in Croydon
Car Scrap Surrey is one of the leading car scrap and car recycling companies in Croydon. Every car sold to our car scrap business will be carefully recycled at our Authorised Treatment Facility (ATF). First, all cars are depolluted to remove all toxic materials to remove fluids such a brake fluid and windscreen washing liquid before as much as possible is recycled to meet the government’s car recycling target of 95 per cent.
Our car breakers can salvage reusable parts before the cars are crushed and then the pieces are separated into metal, glass, plastics, and so on to be recycled in other ways. Parts of cars that are recycled include seats and upholstery, mirrors, alloy wheels and hub caps, engines and engine parts, windows and windshields, batteries and tyres. These can be reused in a host of ways. Tyres, for example, can be turned into rubberised asphalt for paving and roads, as well as rubber crumb chippings.
There are many reasons why car recycling is so beneficial. By using less raw materials, helps to protect natural resources for longer. It also reduces the amount of rubbish sent to landfill, so is kinder to the environment. There is less need to mine new steel, which can be very environmentally damaging.
