Title: Automotive Recycling Industry Overview

  • Automotive Recycling Industry Overview
  • A Presentation of the
  • Automotive Recyclers Association

The Automotive Recycling Industry
  • Estimated 8,267 vehicle recycling operations
    around the country
  • Employing some 103,108 people
  • Total Revenue 10 Billion
  • Total Annual Payroll 3.3 Billion

Automotive Recycling Stats
  • Recycling vehicles provides enough steel to
    produce almost 13 million new vehicles.
  • Saves an estimated 85 million barrels of oil a
    year, that would have been used in the
    manufacturing of new or replacement parts.
  • Automotive recyclers provide wholesale and retail
    customers quality parts that sell for up to 50
    less than the comparable new parts.

Automotive Recyclers Association
  • Association has been in existence for over 65
  • Representing over 4,500 recycling facilities
    through direct and affiliated membership in the
    U.S. and other countries around the world
  • Founder of Automotive Recycling Certification
    Programs for Environmental Protection Quality
    Business Standards

  • Motor Vehicle Fact Figures
  • Vehicles Retired from Use
  • 2006 - 12,008,000

  • Where are End-of-Life Vehicles Going?
  • Automotive Recyclers 7.0 million
  • Scrap Processors 1.8 million
  • Stolen/Non Recovered 1.7 million
  • Sold to Foreign Buyers/Exported 1.5 million

Going Green
  • The automotive recycling industry plays a
    necessary and crucial role in the efficient,
    ecological disposal of inoperable motor vehicles.
    Although sometimes known as auto salvage dealers,
    professional automotive recyclers deal strictly
    in the recycling of motor vehicles.
  • Automotive recycling serves a vital role in
    preserving natural resources and reducing the
    demand for scarce landfill space. Automotive
    recycling also plays an important role in
    reducing air and water pollution, and solid waste
    generation. Automotive recyclers must abide by
    stringent local and national regulations on
    dealing with waste generated by salvaged
    automobiles. Many individual automotive recyclers
    have also instituted their own unique programs to
    further reduce the potential effects of harmful
    materials to their businesses and communities.

  • Reuse is Recycling
  • With recycled OEM parts making up only
    12-percent of the parts being utilized in the
    repair of collision vehicles, there is room for
    substantial growth here.

    for mercury switch removal.
  • Audits CAR members annually for environmental
    compliance, safety and general business
  • Produces guidelines for the safe and responsible
    dismantling of automobiles and salvaging of
    quality used automotive parts.

  • ARA CAR Gold Seal Program
  • The Gold Seal program produces standards for
    quality customer service and used automotive
    parts for the automotive recycling industry.
  • Members must use the ARA parts grading system
    when inventorying all parts.
  • Minimum warranties required on recycled parts.
  • Members are monitored and are to maintain a
    standardized level of customer service in 10
    different categories.
  • All Gold Seal members must be Certified
    Automotive Recyclers in good standing, certified
    for environmental compliance.

  • National Vehicle Mercury Switch Removal Program
  • NVMSRP Steering Committee met on July 24, 2008
  • NVMSRP Subcommittee - Implementation Fund
    Coordination Committee, announced that payment
  • mercury convenience light switches is increased
    from 1 to 4 and
  • Anti-lock brake system assemblies (that contain
    mercury switches) from 3 to 6.
  • By the end of July 2008, over 6,700 participants
    have recovered more than 1.4 million mercury
    switches, preventing in excess of 3,100 lbs of
    mercury from entering the environment.
