Junk Car Recycling: The Benefits of Getting Scrappy!

Junk Car Recycling

Benefit the Environment and Your Wallet with Junk Car Recycling

Have you often wondered what happens to those old junkers sitting by the side of the road? Or, why you’re asked to turn your jalopy over to a junkyard service? Cars at the end of their driving days have value beyond the road, in the form of recycled spare parts and metal for future use. Salvaging steel saves energy, reduces pollution and turns your trash into cash! Scrap Mart offers customers a certified drive-on scale for ferrous metals and a drive-thru equipped drop-off metal recycling center to quickly assist you with smaller office or home items. With over twenty years of experience, our knowledgeable staff provides quality service in helping each customer receive top dollar payout for their scrap metals.

Saves Energy

Recycling saves in several ways, so much so, that the European Union and the United States each developed environment friendly initiatives, (End of Life Vehicle Directives and Cash for Clunkers), to reduce pollution and preserve resources. Here are some of the positive impacts of recycling:

  • Recycling metal requires less energy than forging new metals.
  • Recycling steel is one of the many ways that certain companies cut down on their fossil fuel use.
  • It keeps steel and other non-ferrous metals out of landfills and gets it back into consumer use.
  • It offers safe disposal of hazardous materials and other chemicals like mercury which are found in some car models before 2003.

Trash into Cash

Your old clunker is not trash, so turn it into cash with junk car recycling! Recently automobiles have become the most frequently recycled consumer good! There are a number of wrecking yards looking to take your car off your hands, and pass the profits back to you. Some repairs exceed the value of your vehicle or require servicing too often. This presents an incentive for reaching out to your local Scrap Mart to discuss driving or towing in your vehicle for recycling.

Out of commission cars still serve a purpose by giving their metal and other parts for future consumer use. It’s a no brainer that reusing materials benefits the environment, and what’s good for Mother Earth is good for everyone! Scrap Mart dedicates time to keeping the environment clean and making sure customers receive the most money for their metals.

How Selling Junk Cars Can Benefit You, Your Neighborhood, and Your Wallet

Have you ever looked around your neighborhood and noticed junk cars sitting around? You might have thought about how much of an eyesore they can really be. Unfortunately, some people do not have the money or other resources to repair these vehicles. Some are unsure of what to do with them, and others might be unaware of how to get rid of them. Luckily, there is an option that can be beneficial for you and everyone else in your neighborhood – Selling junk cars.

If you have a way of towing junk cars to a scrap metal recycling business, you can volunteer to pick up these scrap vehicles from around the neighborhood. Some people will be happy to let you pick up their junk cars for free just so that they do not have to worry about them anymore. You can also offer to share some of your profits from doing so.

Then, you can take these junk vehicles to us at Scrap Mart. Here, we buy all sorts of scrap metals, including junk cars. We are known for making it super-easy for you to bring in junk cars, and we also pay top dollar. It’s a wonderful way to make a little bit of cash.

Plus, while you’re making a profit, you can benefit the neighborhood by getting rid of all of the junk cars that are making the area look bad. Your neighbors are sure to appreciate it, and your wallet is, too! If you’d like to find out more about selling junk cars in St. Louis, contact us at Scrap Mart Metals today. We can also answer your questions about selling other scrap metals, too.

What to Do After Selling Us Your Junk Car


We’ll Give Top Dollar For Your Junk Car at Scrap Mart Metals!

It’s so easy. When you bring in a car to our facility, we value it on the spot and give you the proceeds. Since 2011, we’ve taken great pride in making the process fair and simple. Drive it in, push it in or have it towed. We provide superior service, and you walk away with top dollar for bringing in your old ride.

You may have heard ads about donating cars to charities, running or not. What you may not know is how much of your former ride’s value will go to make things better for those who need a helping hand, and how much goes to advertising budgets. That’s not easy to determine, but we know major advertising isn’t cheap. When you sell your car to us, you are in control of what to do with the proceeds. Here are a few great options:

  • If those ads have tugged at your heartstrings, why not personally send the proceeds to your own favorite cause? Simply choose what cause means the most to you, and who will use your donation best. Give all or just half, you are still probably making a more effective gift than some highly advertised alternatives. Take charge of your generosity after getting a great deal from us.
  • Use the funds for something you or your family needs. We get it, there are times when charity really needs to begin at home.
  • Splurge a little.  Depending on the vehicle, you may have a great weekend or a major wish-list purchase in store after dropping off that sad car, running or not.
  • Save for a bigger dream. Pop this into your savings account for that most excellent car or home you plan on getting someday. Maybe that’s the best gift your old junker can give you.

Whatever you decide to do with the cash, contact us for details on how to make recycling your car a painless and rewarding experience. We are proud to be the best in St. Louis, and you deserve only the best.
