It’s Time for Responsible Recycling.

Your car is the largest and most recyclable product you own.

There are currently 23 million light passenger vehicles registered for use on Canadian roads, with 13 million over 8 years old. The average lifespan of a vehicle in the 1960s was just less than 162,000 km. Today this is approaching 225,000 km. This means that Canadians can and often do keep their old vehicles on the road for years longer than they used to.

Older vehicles are typically less fuel-efficient than new vehicles of a similar size and lack the latest vehicle technology for cutting air pollution and reducing smog-forming emissions. As a result, the fuel consumption and smog-forming emissions are usually greater for older vehicles than newer vehicles. These older vehicles also contain hazardous fluids and materials like mercury switches that need to be treated responsibly at the end of their life.

Your car is the largest and most recyclable product you own. No sorting required – the recyclers that work with Manville will reuse and recycle over 80% of your vehicle and will make sure the remaining materials are disposed of responsibly. Responsible recycling keeps cars out of landfills and hazardous materials from being released into our air, ground and water.
