Recycling Worn Out Parts of Vehicles

1. Oil Filters:

When an oil filter needs to be discarded, it cannot be just dumped into the garbage. The reason for this is that the oil filter contains oil which contains toxins. If released into the environment, it will contaminate the soil, waterways, underground reservoir and marine life.

The recycling of oil filters entails mechanical crushing of the filter to extract all the remaining oil. This leaves the metallic portion. The metal is sold as scrap and reused.

2. Car Batteries:

Many a time a car may have its various parts functioning perfectly but the battery may be malfunctioning. At such times it becomes necessary to dispose of the battery. Disposal of battery should be done with caution as a car battery contains acids and lead which are harmful to the environment.

An old car battery can be recycled to manufacture a new one. Therefore, many battery vendors offer to exchange old batteries for new ones. The best way to recycle a car battery is to exchange a worn out battery for a new one or a recycled one. Using a recycled battery is beneficial as it is much cheaper than a new battery.

3. Tires:

Once the tires of a car are worn out, they will need to be replaced. Disposal of car tires is a problem. This is because car tires are non- biodegradable and voluminous. Hence, they occupy the precious landfill.
