In a time where people are trying to reduce their carbon footprint, there are several ways to make a positive impact on the environment. Through You Call We Haul, selling your car will not only have a positive impact on a charity, but the environment as well. From 2010 to 2020, there have been about 176.54 million cars manufactured within North America alone. With a large number of manufacturing taking place, there is a major increase in waste as well.  A typical passenger car emits 4.06 metric tons of carbon dioxide per year. This is an alarming number, which isn’t even factoring in the carbon dioxide output it takes to manufacture the car! Learn about the actions you can take to reduce impact that your car has on the environment.

Sustainable Practices as a Car Owner

As Americans are trying to reduce their carbon footprint, sustainability has become a hot topic the past few years. Here are some sustainable practices to keep in mind as a car owner: Properly dispose oil from your car – Many auto repair shops will dispose your contained oil for you to use to recycle or properly dispose. Do not dump your oil in drains, sewers, or even the lawn.  Avoiding these actions avoids the risk of polluting water and soil. Recycle used or worn out tires- Instead of throwing out your old tires, recycle them at a local recycling center where they can then be used for projects. These projects include the creation of local playgrounds, sandboxes, and much more. Check Tire Pressure – Most of the newer models have automated tire pressure gauges, but for older vehicles, it is important to check the tire pressure on a regular basis. Not only is it safer to drive, but tires that are properly inflated save 10 cents per a gallon of gas as well as reducing carbon dioxide emissions.

Selling Your Car

Through You Call We Haul, you can sell your car for cash no matter the condition of the vehicle! A towing company will pick up your car from the requested address and your car will then be stripped for parts to recycle. Once all the fluids are removed from the car, the recycling begins. Re-usable parts are taken from the car and about 90% of the cars steel and iron are then recycled. The recycled metals are then used for products such as cans and other metallic objects. Through our nationwide network of buyers, your car is sent to an auction.  Automotive recyclers bid for your car and the winner then claims your car for cash. You will receive your payment upon pickup and from there the rest of the process is in our hands.
