Auto Scrap Processing

As a proud proponent of the “green” movement, we make sure that your car becomes a positive resource. When seeking cash for junk cars in Dublin, Washington, or Pickerington, OH; remember to choose an environmentally sound buyer. The junk car removal process in Darbydale, Valleyview, and Upper Arlington, OH, is as simplistic as it can be. The factors that influence the price for scrap cars include: location, market pricing, vehicle age and condition—among others. Are you pondering whether to finally sell your junk car in Brice, Flint, or Westerville? Columbus Scrap Cars is one who buys old cars for recycling purposes in Truro and Bexley, OH.

The Center for Resource Recovery and Recycling and Metal Processing Institute’s recycling report details are: “The landfill materials are what is left at the completion of shredding and sorting at a scrap processing site. The study team asked the processors to look and share their information regarding the aluminum alloy material in this combined product at the end of their finalization of the process. All those processors surveyed then employ some downstream separation beyond just the magnetic and air-separation. All the remaining product is either passed through certain processes for further classification or put through the same one another to be sure the maximum yield.

Downstream separation systems (DSSs) are processes that use dry and/or wet automatic separating technologies to heighten scrap in value and by-product classification. In many cases, shredding operators partake in some form of further downstream separation. Some operators conduct their process without hammer mill shredding. These companies buy already shredded scrap in bulk and then sort and separate. Auto shredded scrap can be sorted based on:

  • Size
  • Color
  • Weight
  • Magnetic properties
  • Electrical conductivity
  • Density and chemical composition

The non-ferrous residue (NFR) can enter these places as a mixed non-ferrous, non-metallic scrap stream that has been shredded, magnetic and, in some cases, air separation. NFR can be composed of plastics, rubbers, wood, stones, and dozens of other material. The volume of the contaminants (i.e. dirt, foam, plastic, rubber etc.) varies upon the extent of air separation conducted before the magnetic. Some processors seek the wire & circuit board content before shipping non-ferrous residue. The common non-ferrous metals are:

  • Aluminum
  • Copper
  • Magnesium
  • Brass
  • Zinc

Some DSSs incorporate technology to reach NFR’s constituents, collect and sell them to further downstream consumers.” For additional information visit: http://wp.wpi.edu/mpi/category/cr3news/

Junk automobiles can be a potential problem since they may contain chemicals such as lead, mercury and asbestos.

In a July 5, 2016 Boston Globe article titled ‘Women gearing up for careers in the auto industry’ by Katie Johnston we learned the following: “Samantha Briody works behind the parts counter at AutoZone. Briody, 21, recently graduated with a bachelor’s degree in automotive management from the Benjamin Franklin Institute of Technology in Boston, and just began new position as a parts specialist at a VW dealership in Norwood. Gender stereotypes is likely to remain part of her job; the number of women taking auto classes has remained steady or risen in schools, those working as mechanics and in auto component sales has declined. Technicians are in demand and women the auto industry is doing more to attract women to the field.

The Automotive Women’s Alliance Foundation and the Car Care Council Women’s Board have attracted more sponsors recently, allowing them to increase the quantity of scholarships they award. GM is the 1st major auto company to have a female chief executive and has plans to recruit and better support female employees. Auto employers who come to the Benjamin Franklin Institute are now seeking out women, especially to interact with customers. With women making 80% of car-buying decisions, according to the research firm Frost & Sullivan, it makes sense to have more working in the industry.

Women make up only about 10% of approximately 150 automotive students at the institute, and to combat this lack of community, they recently helped form a women’s group where students discuss discrimination, hear from women in the industry, and travel to trade shows. Women at the school may be far outnumbered, but they are serious about their education. Once they get out into the male-dominated auto workforce, many don’t last. The share of female mechanics has fallen by around 3% over the past 20 years, according to the Bureau of Labors. In wholesale & retail auto components, the percentage of females has also. The number of women in management positions in the auto industry has also fallen.

This decline reflects an overall decline in the number of women in traditionally male fields such as agriculture, coal mining, & manufacturing. The reason for this, said Anna Beninger, director of research at Catalyst Inc., is company culture. The gender gap is not just in blue-collar jobs. Women who enter STEM fields — science, technology, engineering, & math — often start in lower-level positions and earn less money than men. Of those who do go into automotive, high tech, manufacturing, and other male-dominated fields, 53% left to work in another industry — compared to 31% of men — because they feel like outsiders, lack female mentors, and experience both overt & unconscious discrimination.

In some areas of the auto industry more female workers are present such as in automobile sales. Diane Larson helped her husband open Larson’s Service years ago and took over the business after he passed away in 2008. When she was at a trade show with a 21-year-old guy of another shop owner a few years ago, vendors automatically directed their questions to him. But her shop is thriving, due in part to the new ways she runs it. Customers come to her service station two times per year for prescheduled checkups, similar to a dental office. This brings in repeat business and keeps customer cars from breaking down. Incorporating women’s ideas are good for the business, says Larson, who is will soon have a female shop manager.” The full article is available at: https://www.bostonglobe.com/business/2016/07/04/women-gearing-for-careers-auto-industry/7ineRe27hnYmTsB3OwfQXO/story.html

In the June 3, 2016 edition of WFYI Indianapolis an article titled ‘Marion County Mosquito Control’s Tire Recycling Day Is June 11’ was posted as follows: “The Marion County Department of Public Health has a Mosquito Control program, which encourages people to scrap unused tires amid a Tire Recycle Day on Saturday, 06/11 from 8 am to 4 pm. One of the simplest means to curb the mosquito population is to minimize regions of standing water where mosquitos tend to breed. Abandoned vehicle tires can gather water and become a place for mosquitoes to lay eggs. In partnership with Meineke Car Care, this tire recycling event collects used vehicle tires from Marion County residents at zero cost.  They will accept a maximum of (6) tires each. This event is for individuals and not for use by tire-related retailers or auto scrap yards. All picked up tires will be properly recycled.

Matt Sinsko, coordinator of the MCDPH Mosquito Control program says that this is one significant means for people to become involved in making their neighborhoods healthier places. In addition to the reduction of clutter, getting rid of old tires helps to control the possible spread of West Nile virus and other mosquito-based diseases.” The complete article is here: http://www.wfyi.org/news/articles/marion-county-mosquito-controls-tire-recycling-day-is-june-11

On June 1, 2016 an article titled ‘Abandoned vehicles litter roadways’ by Nancy Cook was posted on West Hawaii Today with the following information: “Abandoned vehicles dumped on the sides of Mamalahoa Hwy & elsewhere across the island are slowly disappearing, thanks to a new contract signed by Hawaii County. The news is a huge relief to Shirlee Shumway, who for six months has noticed many cars beginning to appear on the roadside. The county began tagging the abandoned vehicles, then removing them. Individuals were stripping the valuable components from the cars at night. According to Shumway, one car, covered in a silver tarp, had been on the Mamalahoa Highway, for 10 months. The car had no engine and wasn’t parked on private property–the tarp was old & held in place by lava rocks.

A decrease in scrap metal prices & the loss of markets in China over the past year contributed to a drop in county recycling efforts. But county Environmental Director Bobby Jean Todd says the new contracts with haulers are moving the cars off the roadside & onto county property. The cars collected by a contracted junk hauler are sold at auctions or they’re held at the county’s (2) car yards to be sent off for recycling. Haulers receive between $58 and $75 per car, plus $4.50 to $7.50 a mile to transport the abandoned vehicles. On public roadways, junk automobiles may be removed by calling the Hawaii PD.” The full article can be viewed at this link http://westhawaiitoday.com/news/local-news/abandoned-vehicles-litter-roadways

Our topic here is the recent drop in the scrap prices in the US.

In the January 15, 2016 edition of wastedive.com, Arlene Karidis composed a story titled ‘Devalued scrap metal prices continue to reduce supply for recyclers’ with the following highlights: “Scrap metals such as steel, copper, aluminum and brass, have fallen 65% in value since late 2014, and many are hoping for a market turnaround. At Pacific Steel & Recycling and others they’ve seen a 50% to 55% reduction in what comes their way. Patrick Kons, Pacific’s VP of Operations, says they are down to (7) employees and have halted production at two other facilities.  Steve Moltzan, owns a Great Falls company that sells auto components and says auto bodies are at their lowest price point in over 30 years.

China’s flailing economy and drop in scrap import, a stronger U.S. dollar deterring export, and overproduction of new ore have all had an effect with this trend. US scrap metal exports dropped 4.7% in the 1st half of 2015 and recyclers and those who sell commodities are feeling the squeeze. Mr. Kons anticipates a turnaround, saying it took 14 months for prices to fall so far, and it may take much longer for them to come back. His recycling scrap yard is open & ready amid these global commodities with cyclical prices.” The article is available in its entirety at this link.
