New Ohio Junk Car Plan

Our auto recycling of junk cars system in Dublin, Washington, and Pickerington is quick and easy. When we provide you a price quote over the phone, the old car removal is included in Valleyview, Upper Arlington, and Brice. During the week you can reach our scrap vehicle buyer until 5:30 in the areas of Flint, Westerville, and Truro, OH. When junking a motor vehicle in the Bexley, Madison, and Gahanna areas, it’s helpful to know who buys junk cars.

Bill Phillips posted an article on WTOV 9 on February 23, 2017 informing us of the following: “Jefferson County Commissioners are crafting a plan together to help the county’s problem with junk cars, which have become a blight and potential health risk.  The commissioners met with individuals for litter enforcement to confer ways to combat the issue. They might meet with the county prosecutor to finalize a plan that would give establishments the needed tools to get control of this problem.  There are two licensed junkyards in Jefferson County, but driving through the county that would be hard to fathom since we have a lot of places where many vehicles that are obviously inoperable are dumped in yards.” The full story is available here.

Mark Law recently posted a report in the Times Leader with the following details: “Commissioners in Jefferson County discussed junk cars and Real estate agents say it is difficult to sell properties due to junk cars along the road.  Roughly 60 junk vehicles are on the JFK Highway. A sheriff, highway patrol unit or local trustee can send a letter to the power requesting that junk vehicles to be removed or put in a garage within 10 days. According to Terry Bell of the trustee association, property owners simply can refuse to receive the certified letter. Commissioner Thomas Graham said it seems that enforcement officers are not certain about how to enforce junk car laws.” The complete details can be found here.

In a July 8, 2016 article by Mónica Ortiz Uribe on Fronteras titled ‘America’s Auto Rejects Are Revived And Resold In Mexico’ we learned the following: “Mexico is making it harder to import old cars from the U.S., angering many that handle imports at the border who specialize in the refurbishing and resale of America’s 4-wheeled rejects. Recently, a sorry parade of damaged up cars sat bumper to bumper near a remote border crossing outside El Paso, TX. Many of them were lined up farther than the eye could see. Some had broken windshields and headlights, while others had dents on the hoods held shut by bungie cords. All were waiting near the border to cross into Mexico. He and other importers said Mexican customs agents abruptly reduced their hours and the number of cars they let through beginning in mid-June. This move has slowed an entire economic sector that’s long thrived. In the last 10 years Mexico received more than 7M used cars from the U.S.

The line of these clunkers at ports of entry in CA and TX has sparked chaos. Last month in Ciudad Juárez an angry group of importers blocked some commercial traffic coming into Mexico for a few hours. At a border crossing south of San Diego, the Tijuana Chamber counted as many as 4,000K waiting to enter. Eloisa Talavera, a Congresswoman the Mexican customs agency says the agency was tracking down on illegal imports— cars with values that are intentionally underestimated to avoid taxes or cars with fake emissions reports.

The Fronteras Desk contacted Mexican customs several times but didn’t get a response regarding why the agency had limited its hours and number of imports at the border, a move that’s negatively affected those who do business legally. Importers think customs is caving into pressure from the Mexican domestic auto manufacturing industry. In Mexico, new car sales are falling behind used car sales. While new car sales volume has remained relatively slow in Mexico over the last decade, auto manufacturing production has heightened in recent years. Today, Mexico is the area’s top auto exporter. Almost every significant brand has a factory there, such as Ford, Nissan and BMW. In the last (5) years Mexico exported 14M cars, mostly to the U.S. Eduardo Solis, president of Mexico’s Auto Manufacturer’s Association, says they are pressuring Mexican authorities to go after illegal car imports.

Solis says that too much trash from the U.S. ends up on our streets; if a car isn’t fit to be driven in the U.S., it shouldn’t be allowed on Mexico’s either. At a neighborhood body shop in Juárez, a worker repainted an imported Chevy Silverado. Other cars in the shop still had US registration stickers. Juan Flores, 2nd generation salesman, has been selling U.S. imports for many years. He says they make car ownership a reality for lower-wage Mexicans who don’t have access to lenders. Like other import salesman, Flores is paid for these cars in U.S. dollars, and right now the Mexican peso is weak.” The full article is here: http://www.fronterasdesk.org/content/10360/americas-auto-rejects-are-revived-and-resold-mexico

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.

Those who are receiving funding include:

  • Bay County Roads Commission—$433,704.00
  • The Village of Birch Run—109,952.00
  • City of Caro—211,000.00

A July 9, 2016 article in the New Haven Register authored by Luther Turmelle titled ‘Electric vehicle program in Connecticut gets infusion of cash’ told us the following: “A Connecticut-based incentive program to encourage more purchases of electric vehicles is getting a new flow of cash. According to Rob Klee, commissioner of the state Department of Energy & Environmental Protection, The CT Hydrogen & Electric Automobile Purchase Rebate (CHEAPR) program is getting $1M.

Klee says it’s the perfect time to think about the advantages offered by EVs. One of the larger advantages is the rebate available which offers up to $3K for those who buy or lease an eligible vehicle. Without the new funding, the CHEAPR program was projected to run out of money by July. The CHEAPR program was launched in May 2015 using state funds as part of an agreement to allow Northeast Utilities to merge with MA-based NSTAR and form what is known as Eversource Energy. A 2nd wave of money from the state’s merger agreement with the utilities was in addition to the incentive program.

Since its launch, the program delivered just over $1.5 million for the purchase or lease of over 600 new vehicles. A total of 159 fully electric vehicles such as the Nissan LEAF, as well as 467 plug-in style cars that have range extending or hybrid capabilities such the Chevy Volt were sold. David Stevens, owner of Stevens Ford, said he was pleased to hear that CT was offering additional funding to the program.  Stevens Ford is one of the many dealers offering vehicles in the program.

Rich Ogurick, chairman of Cheshire’s Energy Commission, says locating a charging station, which has outlets for (2) vehicles, was difficult. Eric Richter, VP of Property Management for Philips Edison, said they plan to install fifty of these in the next year. Richter says that those who already have EVs can recharge their cars at zero cost for the next (3) years if they use the station outside Big Y.

The incentive program is administered through the EVConnecticut, an agreement between DEEP and the state DOT. The vehicle rebates from the CHEAPR program function on a sliding scale. The maximum rebate amount of $3,000 is available for lease or purchase of EVs with the best battery capacity. Other offerings include $1,500 and $750 for electric vehicles that travel shorter distances.

This next segment is the first of a series explaining how auto fluids that we capture from scrap cars and the challenges they present as we strive to recycle them. CSC is proud to be a “green” organization that is focused on protecting the environment here in Ohio.

Antifreeze is the first potentially toxic fluid from salvage cars that we will cover. The US EPA tells us the following in their Common Wastes & Materials section of epa.gov: “Antifreeze is a substance added to a solvent, such as water, to lower its freezing point. It is usually added to water in the cooling system of an engine so that it can be cooled below the freezing point of water without freezing. Ethylene glycol is the most common automotive cooling-system antifreeze, although methanol, ethanol, isopropyl alcohol, and propylene glycol are also used. The brine used in some commercial refrigerators is an antifreeze-type mixture; it is typically a solution of calcium chloride or propylene glycol. Antifreeze can be toxic to humans & animals; it contains heavy metals such as lead, cadmium, and chromium in high levels to potentially be regulated hazardous waste. Most states regulate antifreeze disposal; it should not be dumped on land or discharged it into a sanitary sewer, storm drain, ditch, dry well, or septic system. Used antifreeze can cause serious water quality problems.

Conventional antifreeze lasts about 2-3 years. Alternate chemicals in extended-life coolants allow it to last 5 years or up to 150K miles. Recycling used antifreeze makes sense for two reasons: 1) It is cost-effective, and 2) It saves resources. Ethylene glycol, the primary ingredient, is produced from natural gas, which is a finite, non-renewable resource. For companies that use a lot of antifreeze, like automobile repair shops, setting up an antifreeze recycling program can reduce costs and lessen the amount of new material they buy. With technology, businesses are recycling antifreeze on-site and reconditioning it at a much lower cost than purchasing it new.

Antifreeze recycling involves two steps:

1. Removing contaminants such as oils & metals either by filtration, distillation, reverse osmosis, or ion exchange.

2. Restoring it’s properties with additives; these chemicals raise and stabilize pH, inhibit rust & corrosion, reduce water scaling, and slow the breakdown of ethylene glycol.

New technology lets generators of spent antifreeze recycle antifreeze on site by removing contaminants and reconditioning it with additives, at a cost that is significantly lower than the cost of purchasing new antifreeze. Another option for recycling antifreeze includes power flushing the radiator, restoring the coolant, and topping off the vehicle with fresh coolant in a closed loop. Recycling saves resources since a primary ingredient, ethylene glycol, is produced from natural gas, a non-renewable resource. The full report is available at this link.
