Two million cars are disposed of every year in the UK, only half of them through the proper channels. Recycle materials and cut down on pollution by sending your old banger to an authorized treatment facility.
People always like to buying a new car but the question is what to do with the old one? Someone sell it as a second-hand car. Some people put it in the open air or wilderness. Over time, the car abandoned.
With two million cars reaching the end of their working lives in the UK every year, disposing of the tonnes of associated metal, rubber and waste fluids is a huge environmental issue – and big business.
And yet only half of all decommissioned vehicles are treated at the authorised treatment facilities (ATFs) equipped to deal with them, recycling what can be recovered and disposing safely of the many pollutants associated with motor vehicles.
That means a million cars are ending up cannibalised in driveways or illegal scrap yards, leaching heavy metals and toxins into the ground or rusting by the side of the road – some estimates put the number of cars abandoned in Britain every year at 350,000. Thousands of tonnes of oil and brake fluid are poured down drains, while no rural idyll seems complete these days without a stack of dumped tyres nearby.
Germany has more than 40 million registered cars, which are replete with recyclable steel, copper, light metals, precious metals, glass, tires and plastic. But these vehicles also contain environmental pollutants such as motor oil, brake fluid, CFCs and lead. Hence when a car is scrapped, it’s essential that it be drained, dismantled and recycled in an environmentally sound manner.
In Germany, most scrap cars are recycled in two stages. First, the cars are dismantled at one of around 1,300 certified dismantling centres, which drain all motor oil, antifreeze and other fluids from the cars, and remove parts that contain pollutants such as lead batteries, spare parts and recyclable elements such as tires and catalytic converters. The bodies are then shredded mechanically, resulting in iron, aluminum and other metal scrap that is sold to scrap dealers, in some cases after undergoing additional processing. Scrap dealers melt down the scrap into recyclable metal. 97 percent of the metal in Germany’s scrap cars is recycled.
