    Going Green by Recycling Your Old Computer Parts

    Last updated 11 months ago

    Computer technology is constantly changing and evolving. As computer manufacturers update their technology, many consumers may find the need to replace their existing computers with brand new models. If you have an old computer on your hands, you may want to think twice before sending your unwanted technology to the landfill. Computer recycling helps to reduce waste, and is also an eco-smart disposal alternative. Here is an overview of how you can go green by recycling your old computer parts.

    Recycle Through the Manufacturer

    Some computer manufacturing companies provide the option of recycling your old computer when you purchase a new model. These companies have the knowledge and tools required to recycle each specific part of your old computer. If you are purchasing a new computer to replace your old one, you may want to research any manufacturer recycling programs that are available to you.

    Donate Your Old Computer

    Another way to recycle your old computer parts is to donate your old computer to charity. If your computer is still in working condition, it may be of use to someone who is in need of technology. You may also be eligible for a tax deduction when you donate your electronic devices.

    Recycle Your Computer for Cash

    If you have unwanted computer parts on your hand, you may want to recycle these parts for cash. A reputable junkyard or recycling center can provide you with cash in your hand for the valuable parts of your computer. The recycling experts at the center can provide you with an estimate of the value of your computer parts.

    Last updated 1 year ago

    If you are in need of a new vehicle, you may want to consider purchasing a used car. When you buy a used car, your vehicle will provide you with quality transportation, at a great price. With some savvy shopping tips, you will be able to find a quality used car that will provide you with many miles of great driving experiences. Here is a look at some tips to help you get the most out of your used car buying experience.

    Research Prices and Models

    The first step of shopping for a used car is to research prices and models. Before you visit the used car dealership, you may want to do research on the Internet or through other reputable resources. By determining which models and years of vehicles will be right for your needs, you will be ready to make a decision once you are at the dealership lot.

    Take a Test Drive

    Once you are at the used car dealership, it is important to test drive several different vehicles. During your test drive, you will be able to get a feel for the quality and performance of the vehicle. If you find a car that meets your driving expectations, you may be ready to make your purchase.

    Consider Parts and Maintenance

    Some used cars are easier to maintain than others. Before making your payment, you may want to ask about any maintenance records that are available for the vehicle. In addition, it is important to make sure that the internal parts of the vehicle are in good working condition.

    A Brief Look at the History of Recycling

    Last updated 1 year ago

    Although recycling may seem like a modern concept, it’s actually been around for thousands of years. Prior to the industrial age, virtually everyone practiced recycling in some form. That’s because you couldn’t make goods so quickly and cheaply back them, so people had to find ways to repurpose and reuse their old things. During the 1930s and 40s, conservation and recycling became important in American society. The economic depressions of the time make recycling a necessity, as many people simply couldn’t afford new goods. After the economic boom of the postwar years, recycling and conservationism faded in America until the environmental movement in the 1960s and 70s.

    If you want to do your part to help the environment, contact Brock Auto Parts & Recycling to learn about our auto recycling services.

    The Most Valuable Parts on Your Junk Car

    Last updated 1 year ago

    Old junk cars can be an eyesore, but they can also put some extra cash in your wallet. There are a couple of ways to turn your junk car into cash. You can either sell your junk car whole to a salvage yard or sell it piece by piece to a junk yard. You might be able to get more money if you disassemble and sell your junk car piece by piece, but selling the car whole to a salvage yard is much easier and much faster. Here is a look at some of the most valuable parts on your junk car so you can start thinking about how you want to turn your junker into cash.

    Car Battery

    If your junk car still has a battery hooked up, you can remove it and sell it for about five bucks. While you are removing the battery, see if you can safely disconnect the battery cables if they are fairly long. These are big hunks of copper wire that can put extra cash in your pocket.

    Catalytic Converter

    Catalytic converters are some of the biggest ticket items on junk cars. It takes a bit of effort to remove the catalytic converter, but it could be worth your time to do so. Call salvage yards in the area to find out how much you can get for your car’s catalytic converter.


    Radiators, both copper and aluminum, are worth taking off the sell. Aluminum radiators usually fetch a few dollars, but copper radiators can go for $10 or more. Again, call the salvage yard before you take off the radiator to see how much you can get and whether it is worth the effort.

    If you have an old junk car taking up space and collecting dust, Brock Auto Parts & Recycling can turn it into cash. We offer top dollar for junk cars, and we will even pick up your vehicle for free! To learn how much you can get for your old car, call our salvage yard today at (314) 371-4818.
