What You Need to Know About Scrap Car Recycling, Goshen, Ohio

If you have an old car that’s near the end of its life or would be too expensive to fix after a breakdown, one of the best ways to get rid of it is through scrap car recycling. Your local junkyard offers this service to take the car off your hands and to make use of whatever working parts remain. Here's what you should know about the recycling process for scrap cars.

Scrap Car Recycling FAQ

How does car recycling work?

When you bring a car to your local junkyard or have it picked up by an auto recycler, they'll first remove fluids and any hazardous materials like the battery from it. Then they'll assess the vehicle for usable parts that can be sold to repair other cars. Finally, they'll crush the unwanted portions of the car to prepare them to be melted down and remade into other metal products such as new vehicles.

Why should I recycle my car?

Scrap Car RecyclingFirst, car recycling is convenient for you. When your car has stopped being useful, recyclers often pick it up off your property and pay cash during the transaction. Second, recycling of any kind is an environmentally friendly approach. Your vehicle won’t take up space in a landfill — instead it will be made into other useful items.

What cars can be recycled?

Generally, any car that doesn't run or that’s nearing the end of its life can be recycled. Vehicles that have been totaled, flooded, infested by mold, badly rusted, or damaged in any other way usually still qualify. Let your recycler know if there are any major barriers to moving the car, like missing tires or no engine.

What do I need to do?

To recycle a car, you need to have a clean title that you'll transfer at the time of sale. You can't recycle a car without correct documentation. Remove the license plates and any of your belongings from the vehicle. Plan to be present when the tow driver comes for your car if it’s being picked up so you can perform the transfer.
