What happens when you scrap your car with Towing and Scrap Car Removal?
When you sell your scrap car or your used car to us, we carefully isolate all parts and metals form the vehicle. Before we recycle the vehicle, we carefully remove all the toxic fluids from the engine, radiators, etc. We use a concrete pad to drain the fluid before we crush the car. We do not send cars to the landfills, as this has a negative impact on the environment.
The main purpose of selling old scrap car to car recyclers like ourself is to safely recycle the car. After separating the metal with the mechanics, we crush the car skeleton.
Our mantra is to Recycle, Reduce and Reuse for BETTER and GREENER TOMORROW
