When your car is beyond repair, the question many people ask is: what do I do with it? Many people simply don’t know what to do with an unwanted car. Whilst most people seek out how to dispose of their car in a safe and environmentally-conscious way, the actions of others has meant car disposal has posed a real problem.
Figures from the TMR show that every year, approximately one million vehicles are taken off the road, yet only 50% of these cars are disposed of in an environmentally-friendly way. All cars sold to eco wreckers are disposed of legally to the highest environmental standards.
Environmentally Friendly Used Car Disposal
The legal Used Car Disposal process is fairly straightforward, as well as environmentally friendly. Under the Environment Agency Regulations, cars can no longer just be scrapped.They have to be de-polluted in accordance with Australia legislation, and 90% of car materials have to be recycled under the Australia End-of-Life Vehicle Recycling. The process of vehicle de-pollution involves two main functions; firstly the recovery of all components and fluids that can be recycled and re-used, and secondly the removal of all elements of a vehicle that are potentially harmful to the environment. All car disposals of cars donated to cash-for-car-Brisbane are handled at Authorized Treatment Facilities that recycle a minimum of 90% of the weight of the car.
