Auto Recycling

The Crusher is a licensed auto dealer, re-builder and recycler. We are set up to handle all the necesary paperwork required to dispose of your vehicle. All you need to provide is the vehicle and title and we will take it from there.

Our local facility is equipped and ready to process cars, trucks and other vehicles.

During the vehicle "stripping" process we drain the antifreeze, oil, gasoline, transmission and brake fluid and remove mercury switches. All of these items are recycled.
Tires and batteries are removed and recycled. This is done prior to the crushing, shearing and shredding process.

Crushing , shearing, cutting and shredding prepares the steel scrap for remelting at a steel mill.

The recycling process helps reduce environmental pollution by providing an alternative to landfill dumping. It also reduces the amount of energy that would otherwise be used in the mining and refining process.

Certified Destruction

Occasionally, items need to be destroyed in order to reduce product liability or to preserve prototype design confidentiality We will make sure these items don't end up back in circulation. We are capable of destruction of materials ranging in size from small bolts to items larger than semi tractors with trailers (i.e. vehicles, large tanks, machines, etc.)
  • Worn out Tanks and Gas Cylinders
  • Insurance company write-offs
  • Prototypes or proof of design samples.
  • Defective material
  • Test Vehicles
  • Damaged or defective Product
You can witness material being crushed or destroyed or we can provide photo documentation for your records. We can also provide a certificate of destruction upon completion of the process.
