The vehicle that you are driving today will be a source of numerous recyclable materials tomorrow. Vehicle parts offer recycling opportunities for materials such as steel, aluminum, plastics, antifreeze and batteries, as well as whole parts such as tires, seats, engines and alternators. Each year, nearly all of the 27 million cars around the world that reach the end of their useful life are recovered for recycling, and nearly 80% of their total materials by weight can be recycled.
