Choosing to recycle a vehicle is an environmentally friendly option when its useful lifespan has come to an end.
- The typical automobile consists of about 65 percent steel and iron, by weight. Also, car bodies typically are made 25 percent of recycled steel.
- Recycling one ton of steel conserves 2500 pounds of iron ore, 1400 pounds of coal and 120 pounds of limestone.
- Approximately 10 million vehicles are recycled annually.
- Cars are the number one recycled product in the United States.
Before you bring your car to Brenner Recycling, be sure you have the vehicle’s valid title in the seller’s name and your government-issued identification.
We cannot accept vehicles without a title. This applies to anything that was once a motor vehicle (car, truck, RV, boats, trailers over 4,000 pounds, etc.), regardless of whether or not it currently has a motor.
