don't cars get recycled in the US?
nope thats euro hippy stuff
really, most scrap yards recycle the metal. prices on steel, lead, and copper are skyrocketing theres decent money in it. nothing is legally obligatory. part of the recycleing process is destruction. tear the car apart, seperate steel from aluminum. grab any copper you can, chuck any plastics, leathers, woods etc. i donno how europe does it, but i dont imagine they are any gentle'er with them
