Are you wondering what will happen to your car wreck once it is in the junk yard? Or are you interested in the blog because you have a car to be scrapped?
Many people assume that once the car is sent to the junkyard, it ends up directly under the car and turns into flat sheets. Scrapping a car in a landfill involves several stages. Let’s discuss it …
Arrival and transfer: Once we have finished collecting the car, we immediately transfer the car to our depot. Our team will start with an inspection of the car to determine if it has been completely scrapped or if they recycle the parts. Note that the scrap car for recycling does not resell parts. We strictly reject only cars for recycling throughout GTA.
Clean-up: Old cars contain a lot of hazardous materials that not only need to be removed but also safely disposed of on the ground. If this is not done responsibly, pollutants can enter the water supply and eventually the food chain.
Battery: this is usually the first part to be removed in its various components (lead, plastic, etc.) to be recycled more effectively.
Tires: Before scrapping the car, we remove all the tires.
Fluids: all fluids in the car such as oil, lubricants, fuel, etc. are safely removed from the vehicle and stored safely.
Hazardous Metals: Metals such as lead and mercury are toxic materials that are hazardous to the environment. They are removed and disposed of safely.
Crushing and shredding: Once the car parts are removed from the car, it is crushed. It is ideally flattened with printing machines and then sent for shredding. How this metal is processed is highly subjective, depending on other factors such as transportation, etc. This metal is used to make metal bars for construction and many other goods.
