Residents that are exploring how to sell a junk car are encouraged to contact our wrecked vehicle buyer who buys crashed cars and damaged vehicles for a price quote. At that time you will receive answers to questions such as what is a junk car worth. In this segment we seek to report on Earth Day that is celebrated later this month. Here at Cash 4 Cars Akron, we strongly support environmental concerns and our scrap vehicle recycling processes are evidence of such. We buy junk and scrap cars 6 days a week and insure that the practices we use maximize the all opportunities to reuse and recycle.
The website earthday.org has a host of information on the topic, with an excerpt as follows: “Each year, Earth Day is on April 22, which marks the anniversary of the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970. At the time, Americans were pumping leaded gas through massive V8 sedans. Industry belched out smoke and sludge with little fear of legal consequences or bad press. Air pollution was commonly accepted as the smell of prosperity. Earth Day 1970 gave voice to that emerging consciousness, channeling the energy of the anti-war protest movement and putting environmental concerns on the front page. The idea for a national day to focus on the environment came to Earth Day founder Gaylord Nelson, then a U.S. Senator from Wisconsin, after witnessing the ravages of the 1969 massive oil spill in Santa Barbara, California.
Nelson realized that if he could infuse that energy with an emerging public consciousness about air and water pollution, it would force environmental protection onto the national political agenda. The first Earth Day led to the creation of the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the passage of the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species Acts. Much like 1970, Earth Day 2010 came at a time of great challenge for the environmental community. Climate change deniers, well-funded oil lobbyists, reticent politicians, a disinterested public, and a divided environmental community all contributed to the narrative—cynicism versus activism. Despite these challenges, Earth Day prevailed and Earth Day Network reestablished Earth Day as a relevant, powerful focal point. Earth Day Network brought 250,000 people to the National Mall for a Climate Rally, launched the world’s largest environmental service project—A Billion Acts of Green®–introduced a global tree planting initiative that has since grown into The Canopy Project, and engaged 22,000 partners in 192 countries in observing Earth Day.” Here is the link to the site.
The City of Akron has several Earth Day related events and activities. The Downtown Akron Partnership has one such program as follows: “Green & Clean projects focus on making a vibrant impact, going beyond the regular services of the Downtown Akron Partnership’s Clean Team. The goal of the event is to engage the community in making our downtown vibrant. During Green & Clean business employees, students and community members form teams and do projects around their own downtown property or are assigned tasks within the district. Green & Clean will start on Earth Day, April 22 and run Fridays through Friday, May 20.” Further details are available at this link.
What is a junk car worth in Summit County?
Those concerned with where and how to sell a junk car are not alone. We have been among the few who buys crashed cars and acts as a wrecked vehicle buyer and recycler. Recycling reduces the pollution and waste associated with manufacturing processes. Part of our auto recycling process helps to reduce energy usage and consumption of raw production materials. Green scrap vehicle hauling companies like us are great advocates for the environment and also can be considered a source of creating green jobs.
