Abstract

The auto salvage business is one of the best examples of recycling and reuse. The dismantling of vehicles for reusable parts and fluids and the sale of remaining materials as scrap has gone a long way toward lessening the burden on our landfills. However, if not managed properly, the methods used in dismantling and storage can result in serious, negative impacts on the environment.
