Why recycle my car in Wimbledon?
One million cars each year are scrapped. Here at Car Scrap Surrey, we are a team of professional car recycling experts in Wimbledon who can recycle any car, van, scooter, or other vehicles. We all love our cars but there will come a time when they come to the end of their lives. At our Authorised Treatment Facility (ATF), we will ensure as much of your car is recycled or reused as possible.
Here all the hazardous materials are removed and parts that can be reused or salvaged, before a car is crushed and recycled. The process begins with depollution which involves the removal of fluids, such as coolants and anti-freeze, and the battery. Next, the tyres are taken off and these can be recycled and used for products such as playground surfaces, running tracks, and mulch. Then the car is crushed and separated into different materials.
There is a wealth of environmental benefits associated with car recycling, including helping the environment. Recycling uses less energy than manufacturing new steel and will protect natural resources for longer. It will reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill and there is less chance of chemicals and other pollutants contaminating the soil. It also reduces the need to mine for new steel, which can be a big environmental pollutant.
