Many people end up owning a junk car during their lives but few people know the best way to dispose of one. A junk car is, by definition, any vehicle that no longer runs and is not worth the cost of repair.
Junk cars can be caused by:
When you find yourself in possession of a junk car it is often difficult to know what to do with it. Most people own cars that become junk cars almost overnight. If you take your vehicle to a mechanic and he tells you that for the price of repairing your vehicle you might as well buy a new one, you own a junk car. If you have been in a serious accident that has caused enough body damage that your vehicle is legally unfit to drive, you own a junk car. But what do you do with them? You have about three options, only one of which is environmentally friendly.
First, you could dump your vehicle at your local landfill. While this has been a popular option in the past, recent studies have shown that vehicles that are left in landfills can contribute high amounts of heavy metal pollution into local waterways.
Your second option is to wait. Maybe you have a place to store your vehicle on your property or in a storage facility. This option can also have a negative impact on the environment. As a vehicle sits it will begin to rust and eventually start to leak its toxic fluids into its surrounding environment which can harm local wildlife and pollute public drinking water.
Your last and best option is to find a way to get your vehicle to a recycling center where they will safely dispose of the vehicle’s toxic fluids and reclaim as much of the vehicle as possible. While this is the best option, it is not always the easiest. It can be difficult to locate a suitable facility and not everyone has access to a tow truck. Our program is designed to get local junk cars to the right place. If you have a junk car, call us today and we will tow it to a local center and pay you cash based on the value of your vehicle’s recyclable parts.
