6 Automotive Parts You Can Easily Recycle

Auto Glass

Most broken windshields regretfully end up in the landfill. Automotive safety glass is not the same as regular glass, and therefore cannot be recycled at just any facility. While certain organizations have been working to organize processes to recycle automotive glass, it has not caught on in every state. If your local area does not have an automotive glass recycling program, the next best thing is to support the various products being made from it. Such products include floor tile, counter tops, jewelry, and drinking glasses.While recycling may not always be easy, it is essential to the earth's survival. By recycling, you are not only bringing attention to this industry as a viable business concept, you are also doing your part to reduce your carbon footprint, one step (or iron scrap) at a time!
