What do you do with a vehicle once it stops running? Many people take their junk cars to landfills, others let them sit in their yards or driveways. Most people nowadays know that junk cars should be taken to recycling centers but many people don’t know how to get their broken junk car to a center.

Dangers of Dumping

In case you haven’t heard of the dangers associated with dumping or storing junk cars, here is a brief overview. Vehicles that are left in landfills can contribute to heavy metal pollution in public water sources. How? During storms, rainwater picks up pollutants from junk cars and carries them through the soil and through the protective barriers found under landfills. The rainwater then rejoins underground water sources and can begin to pollute local drinking water as it moves in rivers and streams affecting the health of local residents and posing a hazard to wildlife. Leaving a junk car on your property is not any better because if a car is left long enough it will begin to leak dangerous fluids onto the property which can spread into waterways and harm wildlife that comes into contact with it. Even with this information, it may be hard to find the time or the means to tow your junk car to a recycling center. That’s where we come in.

We started the Cash For Junk Cars program in order to promote good recycling practices and protect the health of our city. The program may not make us the most revenue but it is a project that we are passionate about. Here’s how the program works. Give us a call and tell us about your junk car. We will let you know if it qualifies based on recyclability criteria. If it qualifies, we will come to you and tow your junk car to a recycling center for free. Furthermore, to reward you for recycling your junk car we will pay you a cash amount based on the value of your vehicle’s recyclable parts. You can be part of the solution to heavy metal pollution and be paid for your trouble. All you have to do is give us a call and we will do the rest for you. Can it get any better than that?
