Recycling Automobile Fluids
Cleveland Scrap Cars recognizes the importance of properly disposing of used auto fluids. Oil, antifreeze and other liquids from junk cars and scrap cars can be recycled and even reused; however, the difficulty involved in disposing of these semi-toxic liquids in a safe manner can be difficult. As a junk car buyer, who pays cash for scrap cars, the drainage and recycling of these substances in a regular part of the daily business. When choosing a “sell my car for cash” service provider, we recommend that you inquire about their practices for disposal of toxic liquids. When I sell my car for cash, why would I care about this? The reason is that ultimately it affects ALL of us. The water we drink and air that we breathe can be poisoned by a junk car buyer who does not adhere to proper environmental protocol.
In a letter to the editor posted on The Daily Republic on Monday February 16, 2015 provided the following insight regarding recycling automobile fluids as follows: “I am writing about recycling your used oil & antifreeze and how hard it is to recycle it. A few years ago we had an auto repair shop and sometimes we had to drain oil & antifreeze to make repairs to the car. At that time the city said to get three barrels, one for used oil, one for used oil filters and one for antifreeze with a large plastic box to hold all three barrels in case of spillage. We would call a professional recycle company to come & pump the barrels out. Now we can’t have more than five gallons of used oil or used antifreeze. So we put it in our cars and trucks and drove around our streets to get it to the recycling place. How many cars and trucks are taking a chance with being in a wreck and spilling it on the street? This almost happened to me.
I was driving to the recycling place when some guy was doing something with his cellphone & came into my lane and I had to go in the ditch to keep from hitting him. The two 5-gallon barrels of used oil & five gallons of antifreeze turned over in my car. Then when I got to the recycling place, he said he couldn’t take it because the used oil in the plastic bottles that was brought for this couldn’t be seen through and the antifreeze had some oil in it. Sometimes a car comes in with a blown head-gasket and the oil will get into the antifreeze and the antifreeze will get a trace of oil in it. Now no one will take it. Maybe the reason we see cans of oil sitting on the back roads and alleys is because no one will take it. Wouldn’t it be better to have the professional recycling to haul our hazardous waste than to drive it around town to take it in?” Here is the link to the complete article:
