Your car donation makes a positive impact

14 million tons salvaged.

Over 80% of a car can be recycled. Recycling 13 million automobiles in a year recovers 14 million tons of recycled steel, saving enough energy to power 18 million households for one year.

85 million barrels of oil saved

The steel industry uses 74% less energy by recycling steel instead of producing new steel. That’s equivalent to annually saving about 85 million barrels of oil.

24 million gallons of motor oil reused

2 million gallons of water can be contaminated with just 1 gallon of motor oil. Each year, the automotive recycling industry ensures an estimated 24 million gallons of motor oil is reused and not wasted.

Reduce our planet’s pollution

Recycling your vehicle can lead to a 76% reduction in water pollution and 86% reduction in air pollution. A California study estimates that cars 13 years old and older accounted for 25% of miles driven but 75% of all pollution from cars.
