The March 2, 2017 edition of the Maui News informed us of an auto scrap recycling program: “Those residing in Maui County may now dispose of (1) vehicle each year for free via a new county abandoned auto program. An Abandoned Vehicles – Junk Vehicle Disposal Assistance Program (JVDAP), has been established, allowing for the free scrap of a car annually until funding is consumed, according to the local Department of Environmental Management.  Local inhabitants of the area are required to register these old vehicles as “permanently junked” and then bring them to Hammerhead Metals, the participating metals recycling facility.

Users will be asked to complete a brief survey to monitor the progress of the program. Owners are required to bring proper documents to participate. Eligibility includes passenger vehicles, pick-up trucks and vans weighing up to 3 tons. They further asked that the cars are cleaned of excessive household trash or other waste. They cannot accept camper shells when they are junked. Vehicles may be brought in with fluids and are accepted regardless of condition. For full eligibility requirements and documents, go to www.mauicounty.gov

The JVDAP is funded through a Highway Beautification & Abandoned Vehicles Fund, generated from annual vehicle registration fees.  It assists those residents in disposing of their junk vehicles safely and legally while eliminating the volume of abandoned vehicles littering the roads.

An article Phil LeBeau on WTHR NBC on December 5, 2016 explains the following: “A new study found many in the U.S. are driving a car that is approximately 11-12 years old. With cars retailing at high prices, people are extending out their vehicle loans to keep their payments as low as possible. Cars and trucks have developed to be more reliable so folks hang on to them longer.  In fact, those purchasing new vehicles today typically own them for almost 7 years – which is nearly 3 years longer than in 2001.

The economics are inspiring the consumer to retain their vehicles longer and because that the vehicle is mechanically better these days that certainly allow for them to hang on to them for longer periods because of the economic factors.  All of this is welcome news for the vehicle industry. Auto components sellers like it because people replace brakes, spark plugs and other components in older cars. If the auto owners aren’t doing it themselves, they are bringing their cars in to a mechanic which means new car dealerships have more occasions to convince consumers it is time to trade in the older models for a newer ones with the latest and greatest features. There are so many new developments that are found in newer autos today that if you find yourself driving an older vehicle, it is similar to calling your friends on a rotary telephone.  Cars manufactured in the 1990s and early 2000s might lack the amenities of the newer cars, but they will stay on the road for potentially a few more years to come. By 2021, it is estimated that 20M cars in America will be a minimum of twenty-five years old.” The complete article is available here.

Vehicle Scrap Recycling Process

Those who purchase or buy used cars for scrap in the regions of Georgesville, Brown, and Norwich can attest to market volatility. Paying fast cash for scrap vehicles is our primary function, allowing for the initiation of the recycling process in Perry, Plain, and Sharon, OH. The junk car removal aspect of the business is particularly important in terms of efficiency, even in the areas of Lincoln Village and Amlin. The current price for scrap cars in Columbus is at a significant low currently.

Center for Resource Recovery and Recycling report tells us the following: “Secondary aluminum processing sites convert gathered aluminum-filled scrap into a fully recycled, reusable product. These products are in a variety of forms. The incoming product to these sites is typically pre-treated via a cleaning process involving heat or chemicals to limit contamination due to contaminants like carbon from polymers, paints, and lacquers etc.

This study makes reference to light gauge & heavy gauge recovery processes. These segments are made as a reference to the size and overall area of the scrap class that is being charged into the furnaces. Light gauge scrap (i.e. auto-shred Twitch) will be of lesser size and has a high surface area to volume ratio. Heavy gauge scrap (i.e. Al alloy wheels, Al bumpers) is bigger in size and has a lower surface area to volume ratio versus light gauge scrap. Dross is formed naturally during aluminum smelting; reactions with oxygen form aluminum oxide at a higher rate during the melting process due to the increased processing temperature. During liquefaction of aluminum product, the aluminum oxide films on the product of the individual particulates come to the surface of the molten volume. This by-product is filtered and sent to a dross processor for further recovery. White dross is a type that forms when no salt flux is used during the melting. Salt cake is a by-product of white dross processes and consists of close composition to that of black dross. A similar composition results because a salt fluxing agent that is utilized during white dross processing to extract aluminum-based units. Salt cake & black dross consist of different compositional proportions of aluminum, aluminum oxide & salt flux.

A spike in production increases the aluminum metal unit loss, thus decreasing the recycling rate of auto aluminum. Many reasons attribute to this limit including purity of the melt and, as discussed, surface area to volume ratio. Mixes of aluminum scrap products, possibly mixed with primary aluminum, are commonly charged together to generate the required secondary aluminum alloy. Secondary aluminum recovery processors understand and quantify the metal yield expected from each charge and identify how each mix amid constituent affects this yield. Due to the variable nature of these charge mixtures, distinguishing them into two categories, heavy and light recovery processes, although not handled separately in most cases, permits an appropriate melt yield to be credited to the scrap class that is being recovered to form a new aluminum material.” To view the complete study click here.

In the July 11, 2016 edition of KomoNews an article composed by Mark Miller titled ‘Puyallup police crackdown on abandoned junk cars left in the street’ informed us the following: “A beat-up old Z28 Camaro parked on a residential street could be an eye-popping classic muscle car. But it was tagged by a Puyallup Police parking enforcement officer because it’s considered an abandoned vehicle. Police have launched a crackdown after citizen complaints about beaten up cars and trucks recently.

Deputy Chief Dave McDonald says it is a quality of life issue; people don’t want to have to view abandoned cars on the streets. He says the department is asking the citizens to report suspected junk vehicles. While many people call because they object to the ugliness and because abandoned vehicles can bring down their neighborhood, reporting such cars and trucks helps police solve crimes. A lot of cars that have been stolen are recovered this way. People often call in, so we would run the plate and find it was stolen. Under city law, a car cannot remain parked on a public street for more than seventy-two hours in a row. When a parking vehicle officer tags a vehicle, they write time on the window and place a sticker on the windshield, which is a warning that the vehicle can be towed at the owner’s expense if not moved in 72 hours. If no contact is made or we get no response, then these cars are towed away. The full story is available here.

In another similar effort to clear the streets of unwanted vehicles, on the timesheraldonline.com a story with the headline of ‘Vallejo police start ridding streets of abandoned vehicles’ informed us as follows: “An abandoned vehicle enforcement operation conducted recently impounded 71 cars for various violations, Vallejo PD officials said. The Traffic Division and the Community Services, along with other staff, checked 271 cars that had been reported to police as being possibly abandoned. Of those, 185 were found to be currently registered & legally parked.

The Vallejo PD encourages anyone who has a vehicle that is not registered, missing key components needed to operate or otherwise abandoned on a city street, to have it moved in compliance with local law. You can report abandoned vehicles in multiple ways: by phone — (707) 648-4682, on the internet — www.ci.vallejo.ca.us, click on City Hall, Police, Online Services,” officials said.” The article can be viewed in its entirety here.
