Buying Recycled Parts Reduces Waste and Helps the Earth!

Did you know that by replacing your defective auto part with a recycled part actually helps the environment?

The most effective way to reduce waste is to not create it in the first place. Manufacturing new auto parts requires a lot of materials and energy: raw materials must be extracted from the earth, and the product must be fabricated and then transported to wherever it will be sold.  Using recycled parts skips this process and saves an estimated 80 million barrels of oil each year that would be used to make new replacement auto parts.  Also, recycling end of life vehicles helps to keep a flood of dangerous toxins from being released into our groundwater, air and prevents unnecessary use of valuable landfill.

So the next time your car or truck is in need of repair consider using recycled auto parts.  You can rest assured that the recycled parts you purchase will be right for your vehicle because they’re the original OEM parts made for your vehicle — the original specifications, the perfect fit, the right performance. You’ll be helping the environment as well as your wallet!
