Nothing is useless in this world. This quote falls true in case of auto parts recycling as well.
If your vehicle is slightly obsolete you can sell it to upcountry where traffic is not congested. So a little obsolete vehicle can also be plied by maintaining it properly. If it fails to get a fitness certificate then obviously it is illegal to ply it anywhere.
So the best option to dispose of a fully obsolete vehicle is to sell it to any auto recycler. In advance countries there are separate setups for this purpose. However in backward countries big motor workshops or auto parts sellers buy fully used vehicles.
If you plan to buy another used car after selling your old car you can check if any of its parts you can use further. So you can dismantle them from it before selling it as scrap. You will have those parts extra once you buy another used car.
But used auto parts dealers fully know which part is to be recycled how. So they check a used car before buying to estimate how much they would earn by recycling it.
Mainly there are three types of auto parts recycling done by recycling companies. These are:
1. Auto Parts Recycling for same use
Many parts could be recycled for the same purpose. For example if auto engine could be refurbished to use it in another vehicle of same brand. Also body roof, doors and suspension is easily reused after a little repair.
2. Auto Parts Recycling for support use
It needs a further processing to recycling. Any metallic material that could be reshaped by fully processing is also used in other vehicles of same brand.
3. Auto Parts Recycling for another use
The third option is to recycle a few parts for some other purpose. Like all iron rods could be recycled by fully processing them to create new for using them in manufacturing of small items.
Also seats of vehicles are recycled and sold for use in auto workshops or in upcountry restaurants in poor countries.
There is no universal rule to recycle which part for which purpose. It all depends upon the skills of a recyclers how he recycles an auto part to use it for multiple purposes.
In advance countries there is established industry of auto recycling. But in backward countries it is done purely on manual basis and not under an organized system. Very highly skilled motor mechanic does it just to get the things going in his workshop.
Gradually it is likely that in all parts of the world this trade would work on commercial basis. Because it saves environment by least throwing the auto scrap and using it most. Equally it saves money. Those who can’t afford to buy new parts can buy them at low prices.
So this is all about how different auto parts of vehicles are being recycled for different purposes all around the world.
Our awareness on them would help us deal better this issue while buying or selling auto parts of our vehicle. It is a great cause to take interest in this subject because it helps mitigate land pollution on Earth.
