Auto shredder residue accepted at Quad Cities Landfill
Millions of vehicles and appliances are recycled each year in the United States. While the bulk of the metals from these items are efficiently recycled, the shredding process creates a by-product known as auto shredder residue.
The challenge with auto shredder residue isn’t the size of the waste product – the vehicle is reduced to easily manageable fist-sized pieces; the challenge is what those fist-size pieces contain. Automobile shredder residue (ASR) consists of glass, fibers, plastics, fluids and rubber, among other things.
With preapproval, the Quad Cities Landfill accepts auto shredder residue (ASR). Call Millennium Waste Incorporated to learn more about ASR disposal at the Quad Cities Landfill.
Automobile recycling is a big and efficient process. More than 10 million vehicles are recycled each year and, of those, 75 percent of the material is successfully recycled meaning successful auto recycling is keeping 11 million tons of steel and other recyclable material out of the landfills and back into consumer products.
