According to their weight, cars are 75 per cent metal and 25 per cent fluids, rubber, fabrics, and plastics. First, the car will be drained of all fluids, such as windscreen washing fluid and brake fluid, before the batteries and wheels are removed. The car is then broken down into smaller pieces and divided into materials for further recycling. This includes metal from the chassis, rims, and door handles. All ferrous and non-ferrous metal can be melted down and reused. Traditionally tyres were hard to recycle but now they are used for materials, such as road surfacing.
There are numerous environmental benefits to car recycling with Car Scrap Surrey, including extending the timeline for when the finite sources of raw materials will run out, reducing air and water pollution, and minimising waste sent to landfill. It also vastly reduced energy usage and lowers steel plant emissions.
