What Happens to USED Engine Oil, Fluids and Old Tires?
We all want to be GREENER. When it comes to our vehicles, some have bought into the electric plug-in vehicle. No matter what you drive, there are liquids and tires that need to be replaced and recycled.
What do repair shops do with those old auto parts, automotive fluids, and old tires? Starting with the liquids, whether you do the job or do it for you, they can be recycled and have other uses, including home heating oil. Using synthetic liquid is a more environmentally friendly option, but they are more expensive.
Stores like Pep Boys, as well as most car dealerships, take your unwanted oil waste off your hands for free. Car dealerships may be particularly interested as the collected oil can be reused in a number of ways. Some stores keep their oil in-house and operate it to power waste oil heating devices.
Tires can be reused in many ways, although most used tires are burned for their fuel value. Old tires can be used as an alternative fuel in the manufacture of cement as a key ingredient in concrete. This is used in streets. In addition, used tires are used in building materials, artificial reefs, shoe soles, and more.
