“They have initiated the transportation of junk cars and other materials from an abandoned property outside Philomath this week after the owner missed a crucial deadline to eliminate the gathered solid waste on the site to meet the proper limit. Following several months of criticisms from neighbors, Danny Farmer reached an arrangement with Benton County to eliminate the large amount of junk that had stacked up on his 30-acres of land on Old Peak Rd & to evict those squatting illegally in camping vehicles and RVs. Farmer met a recent deadline to clear the RVs and those on-site but missed the June deadline to reduce the waste to the level for the property’s forest conservation zoning, which allows owners of property to gather up to eight dilapidated vehicles or the corresponding amount of material waste before the area is considered an unlicensed scrap facility.

It was confirmed that a vast amount of junk still was located on the property.  The County retained Apex Property Clearing of Albany for removal of the mess. Counties may place liens on properties to recoup costs of these cleanups.  County code enforcement staff including Rebecca Taylor says Farmer had made a strong effort to remove the waste recently.  That still leaves a large amount of material scattered around the place, from junk cars, and heaps of scrap-type materials and old appliances, scrap tires and more. It was likely that a crew of 3-4 staff need about 7 days to remove all of the excess. They had figured to work Thursday and Friday, then take the weekend off and complete the task over a couple more days.”  To read the article in its entirety, visit this link.

The recent study by the Center for Resource Recovery and Recycling, tells us as follows: “The aluminum industry and need to gather better data and information to obtain a comprehensive look at the recycling of end-of-life (ELV) auto aluminum. Aluminum’s demand is swelling in the automotive industry. The recycling of the product at the end of its life has not been clarified due to the intricacy of the automotive recycling supply chain and the lack of quality statistical information. This has led to concern about the future of the metal. Recycling is an important step for the sustainability of a metal such as aluminum since it drastically conserves both energy and vital resources.

A grave-to-gate process material flow analysis (PMFA) method is being used to measure the recycling rate of automotive aluminum/aluminum alloy units. Three processes contribute to the overall aluminum metallic loss to the landfill after an automobile begins the recycling pipeline. These include shredding, downstream separation, and scrap melting. Process specific surveys were distributed to two types of material collection operations, vehicle dismantlers and downstream separation systems (DSSs), as well as metal recovery operations (i.e. alternate smelters and re-melters) in order to evaluate the percentage of aluminum metal unit loss & process material flow quantities through the entire recycling pipeline of the commodity.

The quantities of material pushed through the system that makes it to the entrance of a new life cycle is not equated to an input value to the PMFA system since ELVs and auto aluminum scrap are exported often and these values are not tracked & measured for the full market in the US. This study doesn’t use a mass-balance analysis. The volume of ELVs that retire on an regular basis is only employed here to determine the span of the market share of each survey respondent and the portion of the respondents as a whole. The recycling rates are calculated by combining a material collection rate with a yield of applicable measures to the material that processes through the individual steps in the recycling pipeline.” The complete story is available here.

Megan Quinn posted a story on ISRI recently that shed some light on junk auto converters as follows: “Instead of selling recycled catalytic converters (CC’s) in bulk, recyclers are beginning get their units to refiners to get a better price. The variation in products, up-and-down prices, and some dishonest members of the industry make it difficult to truly master this unique recycling niche. Recyclers who collect CC’s know the platinum-group metals have significant value once a cat specialist or refiner buys the unit, but it takes often closely held knowledge to uncover whether a single unit is worth $400 or a meager $5. Recyclers, muffler shops, and car dismantlers have been collecting and selling CC’s since they became common in the mid-1970s to reduce vehicle emissions. Traditionally these outfits will gather a container full of CC’s and sell them to a cat specialist, who pays the collector based on the estimated value of the load prior to cutting each unit open to uncover the valuable PGMs inside. Recyclers are trying to skip the cat specialist middleman and work directly with the refiner, who will pay them for the exact value of their CC’s.

Cutting out the middleman doesn’t always generate profits. More-knowledgeable folks still easily take advantage of less-knowledgeable players in the platinum-group metals market. Sellers must learn as much about CC’s composition as they can and work with trustworthy partners. Recycling the PGMs inside CC’s hasn’t changed much. In the first stage of the recycling chain are the suppliers: peddlers, muffler garages, auto dismantlers, scrapyards, and vehicle manufacturers with production scrap. They can either sell the CC’s to cat specialists who open the units to retrieve and sell the PGM itself, or some other arrangement.

When collectors sell their CC’s outright to a cat specialist, the buyer typically uses an X-ray fluorescence analyzing device to estimate the approximate levels of PGMs in order to determine what they pay the collector. A refiner separates the platinum, palladium, and rhodium into their raw forms. Although collectors who work directly with refiners believe they are receiving fair and accurate pricing, it is hard to know for sure. Jay Robie, CEO of Phoenix Group Metals & Phoenix Automotive Cores says there isn’t a secret method to gathering the correct information to succeed, but there are companies with solid reputations that are willing to play by the rules.

Of the three main metals in CC’s, platinum is usually the most valuable, with palladium nest. Newer CC’s often have higher amounts of it than platinum because of its lower material cost. Rhodium, a rare metal used as a hardening catalyst for platinum and palladium, is typically present also. The industry is hoping for better prices in the future, low prices from the past year still affect the way people buy, sell, and process CC’s today.” The complete article is available here.

Contacting a wrecked car buyer should really be a simplistic process for the seller of a scrap vehicle.

Madlin Mekelburg posted an article in the June 2016 edition of the Texas Tribune titled ‘Proposed DMV Rules Could Put Firms Out of Business’ with the following details: “Sharon Fry, who has owned Fry Auto with her husband since 1998, spends much of her day talking to customers, explaining the various processes that customers find confusing. She says that they’ve developed relationships with that have gone on for decades. She finds it very rewarding to be able to help the public. Private title service outfits like Fry Auto charge an extra fee for services that customers could handle at their local county office. But Fry said her customers keep coming back, drawn to her shorter wait times and customer service.

The TX DMV Board is set to consider proposals to limit the fees charged by private titling companies. According to Fry, they cannot operate under this fee structure. Title service companies contract with county tax assessor-collectors and are deputized to perform functions usually handled by the counties. The industry only exists in Travis, Bexar, El Paso & Hidalgo county regions. They handle just 4% of all title & registration transactions state-wide. In 2013, the state Legislature ordered the DMV to figure how much private title firms deputized by counties should be able to charge for services. The DMV’s 1st proposal prevented the companies from charging a fee over $5 for registrations and $15 for title services. It invoked a flood of public response, including from some such businesses who said those limits were unreasonable. Bill Aleshire, a TX-based attorney who represents Fry’s Auto and ten other such firms says the rules would destroy these companies. He describes it as a state agency taking over local government & the private sector that has existed for years and worked fine. DMV officials also an alternative proposal in hopes of easing concerns.

The new proposal would heighten the cap to $10 for registrations & $20 for title activity. Jeremiah Kuntz, a director of the department says with those scenarios, those companies should be profitable; whether or not they choose to go out of business is still their decision. At a recent meeting, the board could choose to adopt the department’s original offer along with its new recommendations or make different changes. While they don’t make up a significant percentage of statewide services, private titling companies have a noticeable impact in the counties they operate in. Private title companies handle 20% of Bexar County’s registrations and 30% of the title work.

Along with working with the regulations on these title service companies, the DMV board will also begin to issue a proposal to establish a central web vehicle registration system for renewals run by the state instead of the counties. This proposal would also reduce prices for online registration renewals while increasing the cost of those done in person or via the mail. Several counties have expressed concern that the new online system will redirect funds from the county to the state. They also criticized the increase in the fee for in-person renewals or those submitted through the mail. Governor Abbott’s office expressed some of those concerns. The DMV originally proposed adding a $5 processing & handling fee to renewals done in person or via mail. The department recently put forth new suggestions that included dropping the fee by 25 cents. DMV officials cited Abbott as an agent in the change.” The full article is available at this link.

In the June 14, 2016 edition of Recycling Today an article titled ‘Michigan Department of Environmental Quality awards $2.9 million in grants for tire scrap projects’ was posted with the following information: “The MI Department of Environmental Quality released an award of more than $2M in grants to help develop future uses for scrap vehicle tires. Recycled junk tires from cars can be shredded up and used in asphalt for roads or in other various manufactured products—even as fuel for energy. When dumped as litter in the local areas, they pose both a fire risk and a human health risk as they become a fertile area for mosquitos to breed.

Governor Rick Snyder’s program to double the state’s residential recycling percentage to 30%. They fund types of projects that provide future uses for old tires: Road projects are now using rubberized asphalt in construction & repair projects to Michigan roadways. Rubber-modified asphalt creates a pavement that is designed be longer-lasting and provide better noise reduction and skid control and visibility in rain and snow. Scrap auto tires used in construction-related projects must come from MI sources.  Research and development is underway to determine better ways to use scrap tire rubber into asphalt and concrete, improving the performance of the materials. Equipment-related developments are escalating for using scrap tires, and find new ways to create several commodities from scrap tires and increasing current product generation. Examples of current products include floor tiling, footwear and rubber-compounded feedstock for injection & blow molding.

In the February 2016 edition of American Recycler an article titled ‘E-odometer provisions open the door to paperless auto sales’ told us the following: “A measure in the federal Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act (FAST Act) ushers in an era of paperless vehicle sales & pave the way for vehicle-to-government transactions. The 1,300 page transportation bill Congress passed and signed into law by president Obama, allows states to move forward with programs to implement electronic odometer disclosures, notices and related materials as long as those processes provide appropriate authentication & security. This advance will allow for the modernization and expediting of motor vehicle registration nationwide. Existing federal law requires odometer disclosures to be hand written, slowing the efficiency of all vehicle related transactions, including sales & registration. While a provision in the 2012 federal transportation bill called on the federal National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to implement new rules to allow for electronic odometer disclosures, the agency has yet to propose those rules.

Senator Steve Daines (R-Montana) authored language contained in the new highway bill that allows states to move forward with their own “e-odometer” programs. MVSC, a national provider of electronic vehicle registration technology, led the effort to include the provision in the Highway bill along with the National Auto Dealer Association and state auto dealer associations throughout the country. The groups praised senator Daines for his leadership in making sure the e-odometer language was included in the final bill.” The full article is available here.

Other interesting aspects of the bill included the following from transportation.house.gov: “A restriction on driving privileges that limits the individual to operating only motor vehicles with an ignition interlock device installed, unless a special exception applies. Activity to develop methods to detect marijuana impaired driving. Activity to find devices capable of measuring marijuana levels in motor vehicle operators. Activity to develop methods to differentiate driving impairments between alcohol and marijuana.” The complete bill is available at this link
