Earth Day is approaching. Take just a little bit of time out of your day. Think about what you can do to make the planet a better place to live. It will affect people in the future. You don’t need to change the world here. Even if you do something small it will make a tremendous difference. If millions of people each did one small thing to help the environment on Earth Day it would add up quickly and make a huge impact.
Robertson Auto Salvage currently recycles all fluids including oil, brake fluid, antifreeze, washer fluid, and freon during its dismantling process. We also recycle lead batteries, tires, and other automotive materials.
If you can’t think of anything that you can do to help on Earth Day, we have a suggestion. If you have an old junk car that’s been sitting for years on end, you can recycle it for used auto parts. Robertson’s Auto Salvage can even come to your property to tow it away for you. Not only are you doing a good thing for the environment, but you’ll be paid. The same holds true if you may have some old auto parts that have been lying around for a long time collecting dust.
Earth Day is the perfect time to recycle those used auto parts. When people purchase used auto parts, instead of new auto parts, the pollution levels decrease. You’re being paid for your used auto parts. Just think about what you can do with all of that additional cash? You’d be surprised how much money Robertson’s Auto Salvage will pay you for your used auto parts. Automobiles are among the most recycled products in the world.
If you’re interested in purchasing or selling recycled auto parts online or in person please drop by or check out the Robertson’s Auto Salvage Wareham Website today. We have been supplying local businesses and consumers quality recycled automotive parts since 1969. We even offer extended warranties on many recycled auto parts.
The chances are high that metal items you would recycle are simply taking up space on your property. While they may not be worth much to you, others have the tools and expertise necessary to extract the valuable metals from them, reusing those metals in the production of new items.
The manufacturing process itself also uses up a substantial amount of energy, leaving a potentially massive carbon footprint, which is why it’s essential to recycle any items you can. The less demand there is for new items, the less harmful the impact of the manufacturing process will be.
Robertson’s Auto Salvage also sells a wide range of recycled auto parts. We look forward to working with you, please contact us for more information. Remember that Recycling your scrap metal and auto parts, is one of the easiest and most effective ways to make a difference this Earth Day.

Did you know that the average price for a new vehicle in 2020 was $37,876 according to the Kelley Blue Book? That is a price that many hard-working Americans simply cannot afford. This is why many people turn to the used car market. If you can afford a certified pre-owned vehicle that is backed by a manufacturer’s warranty, that’s a good way to go. However, those vehicles are typically only a few years old and are still expensive. So, plenty of consumers turns to older used vehicles.
If you’re in that position then you should expect and plan for the fact that your used vehicle will need repairs. If it doesn’t need repairs right away, it will in the near future. Since you’re buying a used car to save money, it also makes financial sense to figure out a way to save money on the repairs. Saving money on auto parts is your best bet. New auto parts are incredibly expensive. That’s why many people purchase used auto parts from junkyards.
A growing trend in the junkyard business that will save you even more money on used auto parts is something called U-Pull-It or Pick and Pull. U-Pull-It junk auto salvage yards typically contain hundreds or even thousands of used junkyard vehicles. Consumers typically pay an entry fee and have complete access to the used part lot. In essence, you’re allowed to browse through all the vehicles and pull or extract any of the parts that you want. When you exit the lot, you pay for the parts that you have pulled. You can typically save upwards of 80% on the used auto parts by pulling them yourself.

Our industry has an identity problem. Most of the general population has little knowledge of the benefits we offer and has preconceived notions about auto recycling. We are the most misunderstood industry in the world. Unfortunately, many of the first auto recyclers began as an offshoot from an unrelated business plan – some were rag merchants, others paper, and some scrap dealers. There were very little, if any, standards of environmental or quality control. We were the place that collected junk, hence the name “junkyard.”
During World War II, all manufacturing was geared toward the production of war support products. The only place to buy replacement repair auto parts was at a junkyard, but we never improved our image. People started to buy our products more and more, but we never improved our processes. Recycling end-of-life vehicles was a time-consuming, dirty process mostly done by hand. Just imagine chopping up a car with a hatchet by hand, not paying too much attention as to where the oil, gasoline, and other fluids flowed. We were on par with the trash dumps but handling old abandoned vehicles.
There are many auto recycling facilities that never evolved into the modern professional auto recycler of today. These facilities most likely are not computerized, do not follow environmental protocols, and are an eyesore to their neighbors. The unknowing consumer might think that all auto recyclers operate and look the same.
Most of these operators die off when new generations inherit the junkyard, while some are newly formed as illegal operators working out of chop shops or tow yard locations. Whatever the case, we are often judged by the lowest common denominator. Often we have long-standing customers who forget about the many great
parts we supplied to them and latch onto the one part
that failed after installation.
We do a pretty good job in promoting our industry to those who know about us, including fellow recyclers, insurance companies, and body and mechanical shops. The problem here is that in most instances we are preaching to the choir. Body and mechanical shops have a love/hate relationship with us – they hate us when our parts are mandated and love us when they are fixing their own vehicle and want to save money. Lots of times the consumer formulates their opinion of our parts from a shop writing the estimate. Our parts are classified as “junk” and why would you take the chance with a worn-out part. Some even have signs saying they don’t perform repairs with junkyard parts. We have allowed
the industry that installs our parts to formulate the
consumer’s perception of our product.
In the past, every time you saw a salvage yard in the movies, there was a drug dealer or someone was being shot and thrown into the trunk of a car. Unfortunately, movies, TV shows, and the media can formulate people’s opinions for the good and bad. It seems like after getting a bad reputation, it takes forever to make it good. I don’t think we have a bad reputation, just a misunderstanding of the benefits of our industry. Next time you take an Uber, ask the driver if they would utilize our parts in repairs. Better yet, ask a waiter their opinion, but be ready to explain why our parts are good for their wallet and the environment. An educated consumer is our best customer.
Just imagine if every salvage yard around the world started promoting the benefits of our industry to the consumer and the “not yet” consumer. Ideology is formatted early in life, let’s reach out to the younger generation. They might not own a car, but they are zealot environmentalists, the perfect match for our industry.
We must be viewed as stewards of the environment as a carbon-negative industry, not as the polluters that our forefathers portrayed. We should all be utilizing social media in promoting our industry, it’s cheap and far-reaching. Call your local news media and offer a tour and story on the benefits of our industry. Do the same with your town leaders and planners. Maybe we could all offer public tours on World Auto Recycling Day on September 18th!
Perceptions are easy to form but difficult to change.
