One of the biggest ways, the salvage yard recycles is with the buying and selling of metal. R.H. Willson has a scale that allows us to weigh customer vehicles and scrap metal by the truck load. The weight of the metal determines how much money the customer gets. The price of metal changes quite frequently, so we always recommend calling ahead for current pricing.
We also buy junk cars to salvage. Drive the car in or request a local pick-up. Either way it can be weighed on the scale. The cars get inspected and usable parts are dismantled for resale. The remainder of the vehicle will eventually be crushed and sold as scrap steel. Once the cars are considered “junked,” it means they are ready for the crusher. The cars are transported by a loader and put into the crusher where they will start to resemble a flat pancake. Instead of leaving those pesky junked cars to rot away where it can seep into the ground creating permanent damage, you should call the salvage yard because we have people who specialize in removing those unwanted vehicles.
Recycled metals must be separated by type. We have containers to separate the metals. Number One metal, which is steel, is stored in one container, and Light Iron has its own spot and so forth. After everything is organized, we deal with certain companies that specialize in the removal of the metal. It goes to their facility where it is properly organized to be recycled.
Little steps like the removal of the cars or extra metal actually help your environment a lot more then you know. That is also why R.H. Willson goes above and beyond to recycle as many things as we can. This is just one way that R.H. Willson recycles; you should stay tuned each month to see how many others ways that R.H. Willson recycles!
