Auto Recyclers are incredibly rare in Illinois. California law and the culture of the state make it a pioneer in auto recycling. Fortunately, auto recyclers are just starting to make headway in Chicago and New York.

Unfortunately, most so-called auto recyclers marketing online are simply the same scrap metal dealers that have been selling reclaimed steel in Chicago for decades. There is some truth to the fact that salvage yards and scrap metal businesses do recycle. The problem is that their method of recycling means that noxious chemicals and heavy metals still end up polluting Illinois landfills and ground water.

To truly recycle a junk car in an environmentally friendly way, you need to reuse as many of the parts as possible, recycle all the metal and manmade materials than can be, and remove all toxic chemicals and heavy metals before anything is disposed of in a land fill. You can count on one hand the number of auto salvage companies in Illinois that can truly call themselves Auto Recyclers, and we're proud to count ourselves among them.
