What You May Not Know about Auto Recycling

You may know that, by bringing your junk car to Gershow, you preserve the environment because you are taking off the road a vehicle that uses too much fuel and emits a disproportionate amount of carbon monoxide into the air. But did you know these facts?

 

  1. In the U.S., over 12 million cars are recycled annually. Each year, Gershow Recycling recycles enough junk cars to fill up every lane of the Long Island Expressway in both directions from the Queens Midtown Tunnel to Riverhead, or, stretched end to end, from Gershow’s Medford, New York facility, all the way to North Carolina.
  2. More than 18 million tons of steel is recycled from junk cars each year. Gershow recycles junk cars and converts them into high-quality scrap metal products.
  3. Recycling one car saves more than 2,500 pounds of iron ore, 1,400 pounds of coal and 120 pounds of limestone. By producing customized scrap products from junk cars for its buyers, Gershow helps preserve our natural resources, which no longer have to be mined in order to produce new metal products.
  4. Auto recycling is the 16th largest industry in the country, generating $25 billion to the national GDP. Gershow Recycling employs over 750 people and has eight locations throughout Long Island and one in Brooklyn. Gershow takes all types of junk vehicles, in addition to ferrous and non-ferrous products.

Some facilities may require a small fee to handle transfer of ownership. Because there is no middleman, Gershow will never charge you a fee to take away your junk car. In addition, you will be paid right on the spot.

If you want to get rid of your junk car, look to Gershow. Call (631) 371-2031 or visit clunkersintocash.com.
