While these days cars are becoming more and more eco-friendly, they haven’t always been seen that way. Many argue that automobiles are still bad for our environment and that it will be far too long before they stop harming the environment, but did you know that when cars are brought into our salvage yard, this is actually beneficial for our environment?
How Can a Salvage Yard Help the Environment?
Think about how many cars we see on the road in Houston. Now think about how many cars there are in all the big cities in the United States. It’s hard to fathom, but we know there’s a massive amount of automobiles all over the country.
Unfortunately, while there are many cars being driven on the highway, there are also many cars that are just sitting in the driveway. These cars can actually wreak havoc on the environment when sunlight reflects off the surface as heat, which is then absorbed by greenhouse gasses that roam around the atmosphere.
However, you can still make good use out of these cars you no longer drive. They contain valuable metals that can be reused by our Houston salvage yard. We can also take any parts that work well, such as an engine or a transmission, and sell them to those who need these used replacement car parts.
Many often think their junk car is just that–junk. Naturally, their car would end up in a landfill, but not only does this waste those perfectly working auto parts, it also harms the environment by releasing harmful toxins into the water, air, and soil.
At our Houston salvage yard, however, we carefully and properly dispose of certain chemicals, such as anti-freeze and battery acid. If they aren’t properly disposed, they can severely damage both the soil and water.
