  • We ensure End Of Life vehicles are disposed of in an efficient manner, meeting all legislated requirements, thereby contributing to the future stability of the environment.

How?
When a vehicle reaches the end of its useful life, it is picked up as per your phone or e-mail request and taken to one of our Authorized Treatment Facilities (ATF’s) where all harmful materials are removed. All facilities are inspected prior to accreditation. Each of our accredited Authorized Treatment Facilities will pick up your vehicle and change the ownership/title into their respective companies name. Once all harmful materials have been removed, all fluids are drained into proper containers, making sure nothing seeps into the ground. Any reusable parts are recycled or reused, the remaining vehicle is then sent off to be shredded where metal recovery is initiated.

Why? 
Traditionally, when a vehicle has come to the end of its useful life it is taken to an auto recycler. This vehicle is then stripped by a dismantler, removing any parts that may be sold for reuse and environmentally harming materials such as fluids and batteries. The remainder of this vehicle is then sold to a shredding operation. At these “shredders”, the hulk of the vehicle is broken down into much smaller pieces (about the size of a fist). This is where the separation of ferrous and non-ferrous metals takes place. Although the percentage of recycled End Of Life Vehicles is currently much higher than any other consumer product, 408,000 tons of material nonetheless ends up at landfill sites every single year within the United States alone.The End of Life vehicles Directive aims to prevent waste from end-of life vehicles and promote the collection, re-use and recycling of their components to protect the environment.The types of materials that end up at land fill sites each year include plastics, rubber, glass, dirt, carpet fibers and seat foam, the composition of the above-mentioned materials is more commonly known as Automotive Shredder Residue (ASR) and presents a huge consumption and waste management problem.

The Extended Producer Responsibility principle has been adopted widely in Europe and Japan. For example, the United Kingdom has initiated their own vehicle take back program. Moreover, all German producers have voluntarily agreed to accept responsibility for the proper management of End Of Life Vehicles. Japan, under guidance of the Japan Automotive Manufacturing Association (JAMA), initiated various measures to drastically reduce the 10% of abandoned vehicles found as compared to a relatively low 6-7% abandoned in North America.

Although initiatives have been very successful in Europe and Japan, North America did not have a proactive solution to the End Of Life Vehicle problem, until now. Waste prevention is a main objective of the End of Life Vehicle Directive as found in the European Union. Studies have shown that this, by and large, is the ultimate responsibility of the vehicle producer as they can dictate, in essence, the very materials used in their product design. This, however, does not give any consideration to the countless vehicles that are on the road and almost at the end of their useful lives. This is where GreenVehicleDisposal.com takes over…

What We Do?

Due to the introduction of the Directive on End of Life Vehicles in 1997, which presented a cohesive view on effectively limiting the environmental impact of End Of Life Vehicles within the European Union, much of the world began to develop their own initiatives as a means to achieving the same end-goal. Our site www.GreenVehicleDisposal.com or 1-877-End Of Life presents the only harmonized North American solution to the current disposal system for End Of Life Vehicles, by dispatching them to our network of Authorized Treatment Facilities.

Recyclable Materials

Once your End Of Life Vehicle has been picked up by GreenVehicleDisposal.com and all hazardous fluids and materials have been removed, reusable parts are removed and the remainder is recycled.The composition of the car has changed considerably in recent years. The major reason for this is due to the fact that the concentration of ferrous metals has declined considerably as vehicle producers have opted for the lighter, more fuel efficient materials such as plastic when designing new vehicles. The following graph shows the average breakdown of materials found in cars in 1998.

Metals:
Around 76% of the average car, by weight, is made up of metal. Most of this percentage is sheet metal. The overall metal content, however, has declined in the past few decades due to the introduction of non-ferrous metals and plastics incorporated into vehicle design. Of metals used presently in vehicles, approximately 98% is recycled and recovered by shredding operations which is then developed by the steel industry and re- smelting facilities.

Aluminum:
The aluminum use in vehicles is expected to double within the next decade. As with many other sectors within the automotive industry, the aluminum industry is committed to the “sustainable management” of collecting and recycling aluminum from End Of Life Vehicles.

Plastics:
As stated, the percentage of plastics used in vehicle production has risen considerably in recent years. Roughly, 11% of cars today are made up of plastics. This change occurred for reasons which include the fact that they are both impact and corrosion resistant, as well as low weight and low cost. One of the most defining features of the use of plastics in vehicle production involves the fact that it is cost efficient on fuel and energy sources.

Batteries:
The rate of recyclability of batteries is expected to exceed 90%, as there already exists a well-established network for the recovery and recyclability of batteries. However, there are a small percentage of batteries that are not removed from vehicles before shredding. This requires a greater attention on the removal of batteries occurring at the time of de-pollution.

Glass:
Glass constitutes approximately 3% of a vehicles weight that translates into thousands of tons worth of vehicle glass that was available for recycling. There are two types of glass in the automotive industry; toughened and laminated. Toughened glass is relatively easy to remove from vehicles, laminated glass, on the other hand, needs to be removed manually, which is time consuming. Therefore many auto recyclers do not remove glass due to its lack of cost-efficiency.
