Give Your Vehicle a SecondLife

Don’t just scrap it – give your vehicle a second life by  choosing to retire it through a SecondLife recycler.

Retiring your vehicle through a SecondLife Recycler means you are choosing to recycle responsibly. SecondLife Recyclers are certified through the Ministry of Environment, and they dismantle retired vehicles to the highest environmental standards. SecondLife Recyclers endorse the well-known pollution prevention hierarchy of 1) Reduce 2) Reuse 3) Recycle, and they have added a fourth R, “Responsibly,” as the best means for ensuring environmental sustainability. Auto recyclers have come a long way from the old days of junkyards. Today’s SecondLife Recyclers operate modern facilities and employ the best environmental practices in order to maximize reclamation and minimize environmental impact.

Reduce, re-use and recycle responsibly

Retiring your vehicle with a SecondLife Recycler ensures that usable parts from your vehicle will be given a second life. Each vehicle is inspected to determine which parts are appropriate for reuse. Usable parts are removed and labelled according to their make, model, and year in preparation for resale. Quality SecondLife parts from retired vehicles offer consumers an alternative to high-price, new, original equipment manufacturer (OEM) and aftermarket parts.  Re-using parts from another vehicle is the purest form of automotive recycling.web-comb3

When you retire your vehicle at a SecondLife recycling depot, trained technicians remove all hazardous waste products and store them for disposal, reuse, or recycling.

Fluids such as oil and coolant are drained, and toxic materials are removed safely according to Ministry of Environment standards.

Finally, when all usable parts, fluids, and toxic materials are removed and sent for recycling, the unusable portion of the vehicle (called a hulk) is shredded, and the metals it contains are recycled.

Save energy and raw materials. When you recycle through a SecondLife Recycler, you prevent waste from ending up in landfills, you reduce pollution, and you reduce the need to manufacture new products.
