Associations Help Produce Quality Recyclers

You may have noticed how your local auto recyclers display their industry association memberships at their businesses; for example membership logos for the Automotive Recyclers Association (ARA) and / or Iowa Automotive Recyclers (IAR). Many members have also achieved certifications earned through these associations; like ARA’s Certified Auto Recyclers (CAR) and Gold Seal programs and IAR’s Certified Automotive Recyclers Environmental program (I-CARE), which are also proudly displayed. That’s because association memberships and certifications set high standards that these auto recyclers have achieved, which help propel their businesses up and beyond the competition.

Recycled Batteries Are A Smart Buy

Summer is just around the corner and with it comes hot weather. While warm temperatures are welcome after a long winter, the extreme highs can really test a vehicle. That’s because high temperatures put just as much pressure on a vehicle as freezing ones do. When it is 90 degrees, the air conditioning gets cranked and that’s when parts can fail, especially batteries and AC parts. Luckily auto recyclers carry batteries and all other types of AC components, at a fraction of the price of new.
