Are tires bad for landfills?

Posted by on Jan 1, 2021 in Aftermarket Parts, Used Auto Parts, Used Auto Parts NYC | Comments Off on Are tires bad for landfills?

Discarded tires have a severely negative impact on the environment that most drivers would never consider. Not only do they take up a lot of space, they do not biodegrade so they will not break down no matter how long they sit in the landfill. The most responsible way to reduce the waste of old tires is recycling these auto parts, and purchasing products made from the recycled material is possible.

Impact On The Environment

Landfills are a major environmental issue because there are so many non-biodegradable materials taking up needed space. As this designated land becomes scarce, people are forced to start dumping materials like junk cars and auto parts in wooded areas or in residential yards. Burning tires produce a very harmful smoke that gives off an oily residue, and breathing the fumes is harmful to humans and animals. A single tire can burn for several weeks at a time and continues to contaminate the air and nearby surfaces.

The Benefits of Recycled Rubber

Over 3 billion pounds of rubber are used to create more than 250 million new tires each year. Fortunately, scrap tires decrease the amount of new rubber used in the production of the following innovations:

• Garden mulch that is resistant to termite infestations.

• Drainage ditches, internal layers of roadways, and most other applications of traditional gravel.

• Playground mats, welcome mats, vehicle mud guards, and playground flooring.

• Filter media for wastewater treatment.

How You Can Help

Anytime you need auto repair, try to shop in auto salvage for junk parts to reduce the environmental impact of unnecessary new parts. Work with a buyer of junk cars if you want to get rid of an old vehicle in a way that it can be recycled. Finally, ask questions anytime you get an auto repair to find out if your junk parts can be recycled.

How long should my car last?

Posted by on Dec 11, 2020 in Aftermarket Parts | Comments Off on How long should my car last?

Few drivers want their cars to last forever. After a decade or so, a typical driver wants a new look. When your car is getting too old, decide when to part ways and research your options for junk cars.

How Long Have You Driven It?

Decide how long you’ve been driving your current car. Most modern car makes and models last an average of 20 years. The best cars run longer than 20 years; however, you’ll face more mechanical problems and have to replace old auto parts.

To avoid paying for one auto repair after another, buy a new car after 15 to 20 years. Your car should be efficient at all times, and you should never worry about sudden breakdowns or regular repairs. Instead of making another repair, look into getting rid of the junk parts instead.

Contact an Auto Salvage Business

When you’re ready to get rid of an old car, you automatically want to sell it for cash. In reality, a decades-old car is worth only $1,000 or slightly more. No one wants to buy a car and then have to pay for an auto repair or replace its junk parts. Instead, you may earn more money by selling the auto parts online. If those parts are worthless, and you want to get rid of the car immediately, find an auto salvage yard that specializes in removing junk cars.
