Your car will be recycled

All scrap cars are recycled to the highest standards.  So your old car could be recycled into any number of new products and who knows, it may even be made into a new car!  Reuse is the purest form of recycling and, on occasion, it may be more environmentally responsible for the operator to work on your car to keep it on the road a while longer.
