Why crushing cars is important

Automobile recycling is an important part of the automotive industry and one that is making a big difference for the environment. According to the EPA, recycling metal uses about 74 percent less energy than making new steel. And with crushed cars consisting of about 65% steel, this presents a big opportunity for carbon savings and using recycled metal in new car manufacturing as well other industries.
