Second Life of Cars

The life of cars after they leave the road, how auto recycling gives them a second chance.

For many of us, cars are trustworthy and reliable modes of transportation, bringing us smoothly from destination to destination. But what happens when that car breaks down?

It can be hard to say goodbye to a beloved car that has been with you through red lights and road trips, but remembering the benefit to charities and the environment can make saying goodbye a little easier. With advances in auto recycling, you may even see your car again, in its second life.

Car Donation Wizard can help you benefit amazing charitable organizations, from Habitat to Humanity, to American Cancer Society, to Feed the Children. But did you know that donating a vehicle can make the world and the environment a better place?

How You Can Help

Globally, at least 50,000,000 vehicles reach the end of their life every year, and at least 95% of those cars are recycled.

Some of the recyclable components include:

  • Metals
  • Plastics
  • Glass
  • Rubber
  • Tires
  • Batteries
  • Fluids
  • Carpets

Metal is a major component of vehicles that can be recycled into everyday consumer products, from soda cans, to new appliances, to new cars. By recycling your old car, you can help save energy, save water, and help amazing charities with an eco-friendly donation!

The tires on your old car can be used to pave roads, make shoes, and even create sustainable train tracks! Rubber train tracks last longer than the traditional wood material, which saves trees and helps us all breathe better air.

The junk car taking up space in your garage or driveway can help your favorite charity and the environment. Sometimes, your beloved vehicle can be even more useful in its second life.

To make a sustainable, charitable car donation, give us a call at 877-999-8322.
