Parts vehicles are purchased from insurance auctions to provide the cleanest, lowest mileage parts available. Parts vehicles are inventoried on arrival. Licensed technicians thoroughtly test and carefully dismantle the late model salvage vehicles. We have the latest systems for fluid extraction and freon recovery. Hazardous fluids including Gasoline, engine oil, transmission fluid, brake fluid, antifreeze and freon are drained and recycled in order to protect the environment our staff are well trained in safe environmental practices.
Burning our own waste automotive oil for heat. Waste oil heaters are designed from the ground up to burn waste oil and other petroleum based products as an alternative fuel source.
A refrigerant recovery machine became necessary when it was discovered that chlorofluorcarbons (CFCs) were depleting the ozone layer. When a recovery machine is hooked up to the manifold or Schraeder valves on the air conditioning system, it creates a vacuum and sucks all the Freon out of the vehicle, cleanses it through a filter and stores it in a storage tank. When the repair to the system is complete, the machine will vacuum the system down to 30 inches of mercury to rid it of all moisture and air.
Automotive batteries contain large amounts of lead recyclable lead and in Alberta it is illegal to dispose of automotive batteries in municipal solid waste landfills.
Automobiles are awash in fluids. Start with the gasoline or diesel fuel that powers the engine. Add the engine oil, coolant, transmission fluid, power-steering fluid, and brake fluid that keep everything running smoothly.
Tire Recycling Program
Alberta tireless commitment continues. Originally created to deal with the potential environmental threats posed by stockpiles of old tires, Alberta’s tire recycling program has grown into a thriving, innovative industry that is helping keep the province’s environment safe for generations to come.
Mercury Recycling Program
This program partnership is supported by Canadian automotive recyclers and dismantlers and their respective associations – the Automotive Recyclers of Canada (ARC) and the Canadian Association of Recycling Industries (CARI). The collaborative effort among the steel, auto and recycling/dismantling industries is unprecedented and is essential to the success of the program, which will assist the steel and auto industries to meet the new federal pollution prevention requirements regarding mercury-containing switches.
