We all want to be GREENER. When it comes to our vehicles, some have bought in to the electric plug-in vehicle. No matter what you drive there are fluids and tires that need to be replaced and recycled.
What do repair shops do with those old car parts, automotive fluids and old tires? Starting with the fluids, whether you do the work or its done for you, can be recycled and have other uses, including home heating oil. Using synthetic fluid is a greener option, however, they are more expensive.
Stores like Pep Boys, as well as most auto shops, will take your unwanted oil waste off your hands free of charge. Auto shops may be especially keen on this, as the collected oil can be re-purposed in different ways. Some shops keep their oil in-house and use it to power waste oil heating devices.
Tires can be reused in many ways, although most used tires are burned for their fuel value. Old tires can be used as an alternative fuel in the manufacturing of cement as a key ingredient in concrete. This is used in roadways. Additionally, used tires are used for construction materials, artificial reefs, shoe soles and more.
