It’s no secret there are many benefits of auto recycling. It helps the environment, plays an essential role in auto industry, and helps people make a few bucks off of the junk in their driveway. At the surface, the financial perks of junking your vehicle seems like a one-and-done deal: simply call up a salvage yard, receive a quote, and pocket your cash at pickup. Once your unwanted vehicle leaves your possession, its impact on your bank account is appears to be finished. In reality, recycling your car has more of an effect than you might think.

Auto Recycling Is Healthy for the Environment…and Your Bank Account

  • Junk cars can be a costly investment. Parting with your quirky clunker can be hard, but in the long run, keeping a junk car on the road can be expensive. Junking your car before repair costs outweigh the market value will save you money down the line. Even better, it will put cash in your pocket that you otherwise might have spent replacing a faulty part.
  • Spare parts are cheaper. Even if you’re not looking to recycle your car, buying spare parts from a salvage yard can save you money. Sure, your car may look funny with mismatched doors, but purchasing refurbished parts is more forgiving to your checkbook than installing components fresh off the assembly line.
  • It keeps manufacturing prices down. An estimated 15 million cars are taken off the road each year. The more of these vehicles we recycle, the less energy is needed to fabricate more steel and other materials. This is turn helps to regulate the cost of manufacturing, and keeps the purchase price of finished products at a more consistent level from year to year.
  • Contributes to the global economy. You don’t have to be a hotshot banker to benefit from a thriving global economy. Recycling cars not only keeps hardworking Americans at work, it boosts our international trade relations and helps goods be made around the world.
  • It’s an investment—into the future. Buying a new vehicle may seem like a costly endeavor, but in the long run, purchasing a vehicle with updated emissions and fuel economy standards not only cuts down on your environmental impact, but saves you money down the line. The EPA estimates Americans have saved a collective 9 billion dollars by buying cars, trucks, vans, and SUVs with updated fuel economy and emissions standards. Even better, if you purchase certain hybrid vehicles, you may be eligible for federal tax credits.
