If you’ve got an older car, it may be time to consider upgrading to a new model. Along with getting to choose from a wide range of newer vehicles, it’s a great way to help protect the environment. Older cars are often less efficient and more harmful to the environment.

Here’s a closer look at some of the environmental benefits of selling old cars.

Newer Cars Are More Environmentally Friendly

Old cars are one of the top sources of pollution. They contribute to air and water pollution, which further contributes to climate change.

When cars are old, they become less fuel efficient and produce more emissions. Older vehicles already lack the efficiency of modern vehicles, which makes them significantly more harmful to the environment. They also hold pollutants that can leach into the environment when not properly discarded.

Vehicles from the 1990s or earlier are especially harmful to the environment. They emit more carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, and nitrogen dioxide compared to new cars, in addition to burning much more fuel per mile.

Selling an aging car gives you the chance to upgrade to a newer vehicle made with the latest technologies and designed to produce the smallest concentration of emissions. You can burn less gas and emit less CO2 by ditching your old car.

Recycling Minimizes Your Environmental Impact

If you want to minimize your environmental impact, recycling your old car is one of the best solutions. At Gershow Recycling, we specialize in recycling all types of old vehicles. We take cars, trucks, vans, and SUVs. We’ll take your vehicle off your hands, give you cash, and recycle it responsibly.

We dismantle your car, allowing us to recycle all the materials and parts. We recycle metal, plastic, and glass, along with properly disposing of any hazardous materials. Instead of sitting in a junkyard, your vehicle is carefully recycled using the latest environmentally friendly practices.

Leaving an old car in your yard or garage could also create additional hazards. Cars left exposed to the elements gradually rust. This may increase the risk of the release of old fluids. Old car fluids, including fluids from lead batteries, may leach into the ground and cause surface water contamination or impact nearby vegetation.

An old car may also provide the perfect home for pests, which brings an additional set of risks and threats that you may not want to deal with.
