Cars are recycled in four steps: dismantling, crushing, shredding, and resource recovery.

  1. Dismantling includes - Recovery of fluids and useable parts such as batteries, wheels and tires, steering columns, fenders, radios, engines, starters, transmissions, alternators, select plastic parts, glass, foams, catalytic convertors.
  2. The remaining vehicle is then crushed.
  3. The crushed vehicle is loaded into the vehicle shredder.
  4. The shredder grinds the vehicle into fist-sized pieces, which are then separated into ferrous and non-ferrous (aluminum) metals, as well as ASR. After separation, the recovered metals are remelted at the mills, and the ASR is landfilled.
