Organizers Launch Global Car Recycling Day

Today, international car recycling experts CarTakeBack have announced the first annual Global Car Recycling Day, to be held on June 20th. With over 1.4 billion cars on roads globally, it is essential that the public makes an environmentally responsible choice when their vehicle reaches the end of its life.

Alison Price, Business Development Manager for CarTakeBack, said: “Establishing responsible car recycling networks across the globe, after meeting the UK and EU’s tough environmental standards and 95% recycling rates, has revealed the pressing need for this campaign. While many countries love their cars, and are increasingly environmentally aware, at the end of a vehicle’s life the right choices are not always clear or indeed available. To avoid environmental harm and to ensure the protection of sustainable car production into the future, it’s essential that car recycling regulations are improved internationally. The public can help to drive that progress by demanding an environmentally responsible route for the disposal of their old car.”

In order to maintain the world’s most popular form of travel, while protecting our environment and supporting sustainable car production, it is now crucial to raise awareness of the importance of responsible car recycling. On June 20th, the public can take to social media and share the campaign, show their support and start the conversation by using #GlobalCarRecyclingDay.
