The unique trophy, presented to Palmerston 4WD Spares at the APRAA national conference held in the hunter valley in NSW, is made entirely from used car parts ( pic of Trophy )

The manufacture of new parts places great demands on the world's finite supplies of raw materials and energy resources. Parts and materials recycling is therefore being encouraged by Governments throughout the world as an aid to resource conservation and clearly, re use is the finest form of environmentally friendly recycling.

Our records show we have recycled over millions of kilo’s of scrap metal, including different steel and alloys. Thousands of rubber tyres, and tens of thousands of litres of oils from going into the ground.

At the present technological stage of Automotive manufacturing about 80% of all vehicle components can be re-used as replacement spare parts or recycled as raw materials, 20% of the cars weight is not recyclable and ends up as landfill. Most car manufacturers are aiming to reduce the content of none recyclable materials to 5% by the year 2015.

The average motor vehicle contains: 72% iron and steel 10% plastic 5% aluminium 5% rubber 3% zinc, led and copper 2% glass 3% other substances

We need to protect this amazing planet will live on.
