What Are Eco-Friendly Ways to Dispose of a Used Car?, Barkhamsted, Connecticut

Your vehicle won’t last forever, and there will come a point when you need to dispose of it. With so much waste populating landfills, you may look for eco-friendly ways to get rid of your used car when you no longer want it around. Your options will depend on how much time you’re willing to put into this and whether the vehicle still operates. Here are a few solutions that work for different people.

If the Car Still Works 


For used cars that still work, donating is an eco-friendly way to find a new home for your unwanted belongings. You can also have the value of the vehicle assessed by the charitable organization, which will allow you to receive tax deductions. 


If your vehicle still runs and you are in the market for a new one, some dealerships offer to take the vehicle off your hands in exchange for a discount on new purchases. The dealership then assumes the responsibility of reselling the car.

Depending on the dealership, you may get a fixed amount or one based on the market value of the vehicle.

If It No Longer Drives

The professionals at this type of facility will strip it of parts that are recyclable or can be resold to buyers.
