Environment
Environmental issues as far as end of life vehicles are concerned, occur at both the disposal ground as well as the shredding facility. If hazardous fluids and materials are not handled properly, the end-result can lead to the hazardous contamination of nearby soil and ground water supplies.

FACT: One inappropriately handled liter of engine oil has the potential of contaminating up to one million liters of water.

Moreover, the fact that this oil is not recycled, results in an actual loss of an energy source.

Another concern of GreenVehicleDisposal.com and the environment is the fact that many vehicles contain mercury switches. Although the phase out of mercury switches began in the early 1990’s, many vehicles that are currently at the end of their life cycle still contain Mercury. Therefore, many End Of Life Vehicles contain a bio-accumulative toxic, which presents a great threat to the health and welfare of humans and wildlife.

Many of the recycling facilities that are in current operation throughout North America, were developed before any particular standards regarding environmental awareness were implemented. This factor has lead to the development of Authorized Treatment Facilities (ATF’s) that must be accredited based on GreenVehicleDisposal.com regulations.
