Are Junk Cars Recycled?

Recycle Cars Dallas TX

You’re ready to sell your junk car in Dallas. The time has finally come, and there’s no turning back now. You’ve gotten a couple of quotes, and you know that this is the right decision. You’re tired of dealing with the constant repairs, the breakdowns, and the embarrassment of driving a vehicle that looks like it’s practically falling apart.


There’s just one thing that’s nagging at you, though. What exactly is going to happen to your junk car after you sell it? You’ve heard that junk cars are recycled, and you feel good about the prospect of your vehicle ending up in the form of a new, post-consumer recycled product of some kind. But, you’ve also seen plenty of pictures of scrap yards with old cars piled high, and you’re a little concerned that your car could end up in precisely that sort of a situation.


So, what’s the story? Are most junk cars recycled? Let’s take a closer look and find out.


Recycling Automobiles


Nowadays, the vast majority of vehicles are indeed recycled. However, this certainly wasn’t always the case. In fact, things used to be quite different.


As recently as 50 years ago or so, there were literally millions of vehicles sitting in junkyards and scrap yards all around the country. If you’re old enough to remember, you could often see vehicles piled high in scrap yards along the sides of the interstate.


In the 21st century, things are different. In fact, cars have become the most commonly recycled post-consumer product worldwide. The automobile recycling industry in the U.S. is enormous: it actually contributes more than $25 billion per year to the United States’ gross domestic product (GDP), and it diverts a massive amount of waste from landfills.


Junk Car Recycling Facts and Figures


We all know that there are a lot of cars out on the road here in the United States. But did you know that around 12,000,000 cars actually leave the road for good each year? That’s right: more than 12 million vehicles annually are decommissioned for one reason or another. Imagine what would happen if these vehicles weren’t recycled!


Thanks to the extensive junk car recycling industry, the vast majority of the steel from these vehicles is ultimately recycled and turned into new products. By eliminating the need for the mining and smelting new steel, this process saves as much as 85,000,000 barrels of oil annually.


In fact, if you add up all of the recyclable components from every vehicle in the United States each year, the sheer volume of recycled material is staggering. Altogether, the metal, glass, plastic, and other recyclable parts of junk cars combines to account for over 25 million tons of recycled material annually. That’s a lot of recycling! These materials show up in all sorts of new consumer goods: computers, phones, batteries, and — of course — new cars!
