Junk Auto Recycling Events
Regardless of where you junk a car in Cleveland, the buyer of scrap cars is required to put their best foot forward to handle any of the potential environmental pollutants associated with a vehicle. Selling a scrap car is simple once you decide where to junk a car, but the buyer’s environmental compliance is not as stress-free. Our next topic involves one of the aspects of auto recycling that a buyer of scrap cars encounters—scrap auto tires. It is not always easy to figure out where to junk a car’s tires. This week we discovered two such recycling “events” that are very worthwhile. A news team article posted on 1011now.com posted a story on August 29, 2015 titled ‘Woman Carries On Her Mother’s Legacy Through Scrap Tire Event’ with the following information: “People from local areas and across the state participated in the Lancaster County scrap tire recycling day event in Lincoln on Saturday. The event was made possible by a grant from the Department of Environmental Quality. Angella Hertzel with the Sanitary Improvement District #6 in Emerald has applied for a grant every year for the past 5 years. Hertzel and her family have hosted the event for the community for several years.
Hertzel’s mother, Becky Vandenberg, first applied for a grant 15 years ago, it has become a tradition ever since. Vandenberg passed away in 2010. Last year, they collected 550 tons of tires. Hertzel estimates about 500 cars came through Saturday’s event. Darrin Ekstein of Bennet brought 100 tires to the event and made more than one trip. The tires will be recycled and made into benches.” To view the article in its entirety, visit here.
Our second related event is based on a staff report posted on August 28, 2015 on the site middletowntranscript.com. The headline reads ‘DNREC scrap tire recycling drop-off set for Sept. 19 in Middletown’. The highlights are as follows: “The Department of Natural Resources & Environmental Control is once again rolling out an opportunity for Delaware residents to recycle old tires at the next DNREC Scrap Tire Drop-Off Day. The event will be on Saturday, Sept. 19 at the Middletown DelDOT Yard. The drop-off event provides residents the opportunity to bring up to 10 passenger car or light-duty truck tires for recycling. Scrap tires from businesses, commercial dealers, large truck or equipment tires, tires on rims or bicycle tires will not be accepted. The scrap tire collection event is for Delaware residents only and requires proof of residency in the form of a driver’s license or utility bill. DNREC’s Solid & Hazardous Waste Management Section implements the state’s scrap tire program. The program, currently responsible for removing large, unsightly scrap tire piles throughout the state, will soon include a scrap tire pile compliance program. Scrap tire piles can create environmental hazards, blight the landscape and contribute to the increasing population of mosquitoes. Careful management of scrap tire piles can assist in minimizing risk.
The Delaware Scrap Tire Management Program is funded by a state fee of $2 for each new tire sold. For more information about the event, for assistance with removing a scrap tires from your property call the Scrap Tire Management Program at (302) 739-9403.” The full story can be found at this link.
