Why decaying cars need our attention


Leaving junk cars to decay in the woods, by the side of the road, or in a residential yard is wasteful.

Over 85% of the material in junk cars can be recycled!

Recycling junk cars for parts and scrap saves money, natural resources and energy. It can also protect the environment by keeping gas, oil, antifreeze, refrigerants, lead, mercury and other contaminants found in cars from polluting our drinking water, air and soil.


Be smart. Make sure your old car ends up in the hands of a reputable licensed auto recycler.


For more information, go to www.des.nh.gov and search "Auto Salvage Yards".
