Cars and other vehicles are made up of many useable parts and valuable metals.  Recycling these large items is important to preserve landfill space but also for resource recovery. Most scrap metal recyclers will purchase used car bodies or other vehicles for compaction. Other components such as motor oil and lead acid batteries can be toxic to the environment and should be recycled.

Batteries - Lead Acid

Lead-acid batteries contain substances that are toxic to the environment but are also commercially valuable. They can be recovered and recycled into new products.

Car Parts

Car bodies are composed of many useful parts that can be stripped and then reused or recycled. Buying and selling second hand car parts reduces the need for new parts to be manufactured and prevents unwanted car bodies from becoming obsolete and valuable resources going to waste.

Oil - Motor & Grease

Oil is a valuable resource that can be harmful to the environment when disposed of incorrectly. Although it gets dirty, used oil can be collected, cleaned and re-used again and again.

Oil Filters

Oil filters are classified as liquid waste and cannot be placed in landfill. Filters retain considerable amounts of oil which carries a number of toxins and can contaminate the soil and waterways. They should be recycled to recover oil and valuable metal.

Tyres - Passenger Vehicles

Waste tyres are a major environmental concern with approximately 18 million waste tyres generated in Australia each year. Tyres are a valuable source of rubber that can be re-used or recycled to prevent litter, avoid fire hazards, save energy and prevent against environmental contamination

Tyres - Trucks

The life of truck tyres can be effectively extended through retreading or recycled rubber can be reused, reprocessed or hand crafted into new products, resulting in less waste and less environmental degradation.
