3 myths about car recycling debunked
Car recycling is a simple, environmentally friendly way of getting rid of your old car, but there are a number of myths that surround the process, including:
It takes a long time
Many people who want to get rid of their car but are reluctant to recycle it are under the false impression that it takes a significant amount of time and effort, but this couldn't be further from the truth. The process of scrapping your car and recycling its parts is easier than ever. You can either arrange for your car to be collected by one of our appointed recycling centres' or, if more convenient for you, you can deliver your car to one of our many recycling sites around the UK.
It's bad for the environment
If you choose a reputable car scrapping service to recycle your car, they will adhere to the latest waste management regulations in order to reduce the impact that the process will have on the environment. Your car scrapping service will aim to recycle as many parts of your car as they possibly can and will salvage any car parts that can be reused again. Your car will be destroyed in the most eco-friendly way possible, so there's no need to feel guilty about the impact that it will have on the environment.
It is better to sell your car
If your car is in good condition and is 100% safe to drive, then selling it is a good option, but this is not always the case. If you have a car that has clearly reached the end of its life and is no longer safe to drive, it would be extremely dangerous and reckless to sell it to somebody else. When you're considering getting rid of your old car, think long and hard about why you are trying to get rid of it. If the reason is that it is no longer safe to drive, then recycling it would be an excellent option for you.
