The Victorian Government does a lot to promote recycling and to make it easier for households to keep the neighborhood clean. But in the end, it will always be up to Victorian citizens to bring their part and to dispose of recyclable waste in the right way. Without input from the public, the entire recycling industry can easily crumble and the beautiful city can easily plummet into a very messy crisis.
One of the recycling sectors that can definitely use a bit more enthusiasm is the vehicle recycling sector. Australia doesn’t manufacture a lot of vehicles but plenty of new vehicles are imported each and every year. Importation costs have quite a huge economic impact on the country and Victoria’s environment is affected quite a lot by the dramatic increase of vehicles on the roads.
Recycling your old car is tremendously beneficial for the environment and can benefit the recycling industry as well as various other businesses tremendously. Here are the top environmental benefits of recycling your old car in Victoria.
A drop in greenhouse gasses
As mentioned before, Australia doesn’t manufacture a lot of vehicles and this is a good thing. Manufacturing vehicles result in the release of plenty of greenhouse gases. Materials like steel and iron also increase the number of toxins in the atmosphere due to the high energy requirements of working with these materials. If more Victorian citizens would recycle the atmosphere would become a lot healthier.
Vehicles are disposed of correctly
Plenty of vehicles are abandoned or kept in backyards for many years. These abandoned cars end up in landfills where they pollute everything from the soil to the air. As you can imagine, vehicles do take a lot of time to decompose since they contain a lot of elements like steel, iron, copper, plastic, and fabric. By recycling your vehicle, the vehicle will be disposed of correctly and landfills won’t be exposed to all of the waste found in vehicles.
Rare materials will be utilised
Vehicles are manufactured from plenty of materials and some of these materials are pretty rare and valuable. Materials like lithium and aluminum will be harnessed and re-used in the manufacturing of various new products. This reduces the impact on our world’s natural resources since materials that have already been harvested are simply re-used instead of digging up even more materials.
Old vehicles have a much better repair rate
In the recycling process, plenty of car parts will be harvested and used to repair other similar vehicles. This improves the repair rate of other old vehicles and makes it possible for owners to use the same vehicle for much longer instead of purchasing a brand new car that just contributed to plenty of pollution.
Reduced number of vehicles on the roads
If more old vehicles could be repaired successfully and if more people started using recycled vehicles there would be a dramatic decrease in vehicle manufacturing and importation. This could result in a huge decrease in traffic on Victorian roads and a decrease in gas emissions caused by running vehicles.
Greater focus on the environment
Increasing the popularity of recycling is a great way to create awareness for the environment as well as for the benefits of recycling. Starting a recycling trend is healthy for the community, the environment and can result in a positive environmental change for Victoria.
