Our Scrapping and Car Recycling Wallington Process
At Scrap Cars Wallington, we aim to carry out every step of the car recycling process according to the strictest regulations and legislation. We take great care to recycle as much of your end of life vehicle as possible, taking all the necessary precautions to ensure a safe, eco-friendly process from start to finish. Our comprehensive car recycling process includes:
Depollution involves the safe removal of all the hazardous materials and components as required by the Environmental Agency. The depollution process is essential, as end of life vehicles have elements that could be harmful to people and the environment. These elements include antifreeze, batteries, oil, fuel, coolants, and more, all of which need to be disposed of with great care.
Once our qualified team has depolluted the vehicle, these parts will be passed on to other licensed specialists, who will break them down and reuse them for other purposes, or dispose of them safely.
We will also safely drain all the fluids using tried and tested techniques, including filtration, distillation, and reverse osmosis, ensuring all the vehicles chambers are thoroughly drained.
Every step of the depollution process is carried out according to the highest standards of health and safety and according to the latest governmental regulations for your complete peace of mind.
Dismantling and Recycling
Once all the hazardous pollutants have been removed, we will dismantle the vehicle and recycle all the recyclable components. This process involves:
Recycling Catalytic Converters: The metals in the catalytic converts will be removed and reused in various pharmaceutical and electronic products, or as new catalytic converters.
Recycling Car Tyres
If the tyres are only partly worn, they can be used again on another vehicle. If they are unable to be reused as tyres, they are often used in their raw form on roadbeds, racetracks, playground mulch, and more.
Glass is a highly versatile material, and due to its composition, it can be recycled over and over again. It has a wide range of uses, from ornaments and tiles to builder’s sand and anything in between.
Our fully qualified team takes great care to dismantle and recycle all the hazardous and non-hazardous components according to the highest standards at all times, ensuring a safe, eco-friendly process from start to finish.
Once the vehicle has been depolluted and dismantled, it will be destroyed. We will crush the metal shell of the car and send it to a metal mill, where it will go through a range of other recycling processes, including:
Magnetic Separation: Usually, the majority of the steel used in cars is magnetic, making it easy to separate this from the other recyclable materials, such as plastic. The plastic is also sorted and sent for recycling and is usually reused as toys, sandwich boxes, drain pipes, and more.
Most vehicles have a thin layer of tin over them that prevents the vehicle from rusting. This layer is removed during a process called detinning, which involves placing the scrap in a hot solution that dissolves the tin coating. The tin can then be recovered in a number of ways, including evaporation and crystallisation, electrolysis, or through the use of hydrous stannic oxide and acid.
Once the stell has been separated and the tin layer removed, the steel is melted down in a furnace. The steel will then be poured into canisters and rolled into new steel flat sheets without losing its strength. This steel can be reused as many things, including construction materials.
