The auto recycling industry plays an important role in building a green earth. Rodway Auto Parts does a lot for the environment by selling used auto parts thereby reducing our carbon footprint and greenhouse emissions.
Recycled steel uses less energy, results in more energy savings, less air and water pollution, and water consumption. Unlike most materials, steel can be used over and over without any loss of quality. Most likely, your vehicle is one of the most recyclable products you have. Almost all the parts of your vehicle can be taken out and sold separately. Whatever is left can be sent to a steel plant where it is shredded and converted into something reusable.
Here at Rodway Auto Parts
Rodway Auto Parts does a lot for the betterment of the environment. Some of the steps we take in terms of recycling include:
We remove fluids from each vehicle and separate them. These are then either reused or sold for processing.
R-134 refrigerant is recovered from vehicles and reused in other vehicles or sold separately.
Oils are either sold to other companies, recycled or used in oil furnaces.
Other fluids such as washer fluids and fuel are taken out and reused in our own delivery vehicles.
The good tires are sold separately; the non-usable ones are shredded or recycled for products such as playground materials and mats.
Damaged parts such as rims, radiators, etc. are separated into aluminum and steel, and sold elsewhere for processing.
Catalytic converters are removed, and precious metals such as palladium and cadmium are recovered.
Batteries are removed and tested. The ones that cannot be reused are sent for lead-removal and recycling.
