Eco-friendly Scrap Car Towing ~ Recycling Scrap Metal

CREATIVE SCRAP METAL ARTIST
Starving artist’s have a reputation to uphold. When an artist goes around rooting through scrap yards, they are doing their research and collecting material to bend, torch and mold into something magnificent. I read that a famous artist was so poor that he had to reuse a canvas by painting over a previous masterpiece. This is our world. Artists have a great passion where they can paint, chisel, and torch and bend metal to create something beautiful. That is what scrap metal artist do they take something and built something beautiful . Don’t forget Picasso was a scrap metal artist too. His largest metal creation is located in Daley Plaza in Chicago.

Old ‘freon’ tanks can keep on keeping on! Here’s what to do with them. If you know some industries nearby, you can call them to see what they do with old tanks. Maybe they will give you a few. Then, you can get started on your little project

You don’t even have to paint on the pants if you have a pair of kid’s overalls hanging around. Let your imagination go wild.

Like this Minion Mermaid of the sea! OOPS! Her overalls turned into a mermaid’s tail! Maybe it happened when she went swimming in the ocean?

If you don’t have a “FREON” tank, how about a propane tank? Curly metal works for funny hair. A wacky hat might work. Let’s see? M-M-M-M Looking good!

HOW TO MAKE THE CLASSIC COWBOY LAMP: Use a plasma torch and template-pattern -draw it on the surface of the container. Easy for a novice with some skills and a steady hand. Drill a hole on top to feed the electric cord/light. Remove the wobbly bottom (with a plasma torch) for a stable base. I love the sunset image -from the lamp light. All we need is a cowboy tune and we have embraced the old west back in the 1800’s.

On this happy note, we bid you fond farewell! Happy trails to you! 🙂 …UNTIL NEXT TIME!

Scrap Metal Is Not Glamorous .. it is a multi-billion-dollar industry
Scrap metal has value. Metals are recycled repeatedly without altering any of the properties. It is the most recycled material on the planet. As you may guess, gold is recycled many times and still retains its quality. Gold rings are melted and re-formed to make new jewellery all the time. Other metals like aluminum are shaped into car hoods, fry pans and house sidings. rip the sidings off, met the aluminum and make something else. Copper, silver and brass are the next popular metals that are being continually recycled.

HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

  1. About 30 percent of metal are being recycled.
  2. 97% of a vehicle is recycled
  3. Worldwide steel production uses up to 40% recycled steel.
  4. The single most recycled consumer product in the U.S. are aluminum cans.

THIS IS WHERE IT STARTS
All the recycled metal collects in a ‘depository’ or scrap yard. Sort, crush, condense and ship is what they do all day long.

Steel ( Scrap Car) Processing Yard

RECYCLING ALUMINUM CANS
It has been said that when you throw away a single aluminum can, you waste energy that is equivalent to the same can filled with gasoline. It’s not easy to get everyone on the same cycle… recycling!

Aluminum Tins Left Over From a Carnival Parade, Mostly Beer Cans.

WHY ARE MOST CARS RECYCLED?
Cars are easy to spot because they are large. You can hide them in your garage only for so long. Some old cars take permanent residence in your garage. But, there is a time that old heap needs to depart and find its way to a scrap yard. Tin or aluminum cans are smaller and easy to ignore or hide. A car has to be scrapped. Some cities will give you a fine if your car is sitting in the driveway for a couple of years. You could say, you are forced to scrap your vehicle. There is no recycling inspectors giving you a ticket if you don’t throw your can in the correct recycled bin. It’s all based on faith. I can not guess what people do with the aluminum cans,except mix them up with their regular garbage or toss them along the roadside. Maybe that’s all it takes. Perhaps, local municipalities should do a bit more campaigning on recycling through the schools. Every state, province, every local area has its own unique concerns about how scrapping metal and recycling is handled in their area.

A treasure trove of classic cars has been discovered after spending 50 years languishing in storage on a farm in France.

WHERE TO GET OLD TIRES!
If you don’t have a set of old tires, call or contact your local scrap yard. They get old tires every day. Normally, these tires are mulched into rubber ‘crumb’ used in many popular places like playgrounds, horse barns, welcome mats and outdoor flower pots.
Today, we are going to talk about up-cycled flower pots.
The best ‘HOW TO‘ video I have seen about making your own flower-pot is this one.

Her are the fancy time-consuming flower pots. You may want an electric cutter if you have it. otherwise it is a test of strength and patience.
If you want to really flip the tire inside out, I found a really good instructional video!

These tires make great ‘rings’ or boarders for any type of planting. They keep the soil inside and are barriers for unwanted bugs and rabbits. You can add plastic strips of sharp pointy plugs for an additional retardant against small critters. The can be custom cut to fit your pot. I think these are really handy. Especially if you have gone to so much trouble getting your pots ready.

GAS PRICES!
Gas prices are creeping up like a ninja in the night! A-H-H-H!!It is alarming to watch. We all know that these prices will not drop AT ALL!!
You can go online to view the lowest prices. But, you have to remember how much gas is burned to get to the “cheaper” gas. Alas, we are held hostage. Need to get “THERE” by car. Bicycle driving is growing. Do you remember ‘walking’ to the store?

ELECTRIC CAR
The hybrid and full electric cars are starting to take hold. The Tesla has proven to be a good choice. The states have more electric pug ins. Malls in the States are embracing this feature to get the consumer to visit. California are pledging to be 100% electric by 2020. However Canadians are slower than as maple sugar. WE NEED MORE CHARGING STATIONS.  I have seen an electric station at IKEA in Burlington, Ontario, Canada. Two at Wal-Mart in Oakville. If you know any more charging stations in the GTA, please share your nuggets of information.

How about a floating car!


End your dependence on fossil fuels with an amazing electric cars!

A decade ago, the idea of driving an electric car seemed inconceivable to most Americans, but these cars with plugs are definitely here to stay. Technological improvements, stricter emissions standards, and changes in consumer tastes are driving electric cars further into the mainstream, and while they still aren’t close to replacing their gas-powered cousins, their ever-increasing ranges and penchant for quick acceleration make them a far better option than they once were. published by digitaltrends.com

You’ve heard me talk about the Tesla Model 3. It is said to be the best electric car at $35,000 U.S. (instead of $80,000 price tag when the first Tesla rolled down the assembly line). Chevy Bolt and Nissan leaf are good contenders for Tesla’s electric car. Remember, the Nissan Leaf offers 150 miles per charge while the Tesla Model 3 offers 350 miles per charge. Big difference with a $5000 price difference.

I had to add in this ‘Tesla’ Video. It is an in-depth review on the Tesla comparing it to the BMW and Audi Electric cars. It is worth watching. Before you make the big leap to an electric car, it is good to get as much independent feedback as possible. I find videos are a good resource.

Hi, my name is Paul! Myself and our scrap car crew support the community in preserving the environment one car at a time!  You may wonder how I got started in this business? It began over 30 years ago, when I had my own garage in Mississauga. Back then we called it Clarkson. Port Credit, Cooksville and Oakville surrounded us. Oakville became a city on its own. The rest of us were engulfed by the newly named ‘Mississauga’. I was a mechanic for many years serving the Mississauga area.  Some cars came in from accidents or were too far gone to repair. It was my job to get rid of the cars, vans  and light trucks.  I started lining them up beside my garage and when I got 3 or 4 vehicles, I would hook them up on my tow truck and they went to the crusher. I began winding down my business and thought that scrapping cars would be a good idea. Sold the garage and began my scrap car removal business near the airport area. Our new location made it easy to cover Brampton and the surrounding area. We would make it to their home [or business] in one hour! Everyone was happy!

I embraced new ventures throughout my years and paved some interesting roads during my life’s journey. I received my electrician’s license overseas, brokered boats in Florida and had a tackle shop right in Port Credit, near Rabba’s on Lakeshore Road. I remember when former Mayor Hazel McCallion used to pop in for her fishing gear. Most Sunday’s, I would take my live minnows and off to the lake for a day of fishing.

FISHING: You may have guessed that my passion is fishing. When things start caving in – or – for good old-fashioned fun, it’s off to the lake. Northern Ontario has some really good fishing spots. I have permanently parked my keister at ‘Red Setter Resort’ with good company and dare I say it  ‘good fishing’.  I’ve been elected king pin for our Fishing Derby at Red Setter Resort. I encourage lots of fishing enthusiasts to register for our Fishing Derby.
We give out prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. Free dock fees for one year is one of our prizes.  I just had an idea. If you want to donate a prize to this year’s Fishing Derby, please contact me email:  paulscrap@rogers.com or call me at 416 822-3253 [or text].  Our ‘Fishing Derby’ starts May 1st and winds down at the end of September. Same time, same place, every year. Why don’t you join us.  Anyone can register!
RECYCLING CARS: It is important that we leave a legacy for our children to enjoy a wonderful “green” earth. We do our part to rid toxins such as oil, transmission fluids and air conditioning fluids and recycle metals from vehicles that are no longer road worthy.

Spring’s Scrap Metal Prices 2018

THE NEED TO KNOW

Metal Miner Trend Down

Daily updates and information for accurate  scrap metal prices are delivered to you at Metal Miner. Throughout the years, I have found them to be very accurate. When I want trends in scrap prices scrap metal recycling sector tells me daily forecasts and what country is doing what in the scrap metal industry. Mind you, scrap metal prices can change daily. Scrap prices will vary between local markets. Only look at these prices as trends in the scrap market. October seems to be the prevailing month. If October is slow, you can bet the next 4-6 months will be slow too.
Scrap metal collection is a critical job. Just look at our growing market. We are surrounded by metal products in our everyday lives. All those cars on the road must have quadrupled in the last 10 years. Scrap car recycling plays a vital role in the big picture. Eventually, scrap metal is no longer useful and is removed from use. Appliances such as refrigerators have a short life and need to be scrapped along with lawnmowers and construction scrap metal. The scrap metal collector, as the front line participant in the scrap supply chain. They bring “retired rides” to the scrap yard to get processed for re-use.

Traffic Never Stops

Some of the processed metal goes into making new cars. Car Scrappers perform an indispensable service to ensure that ‘end-of-life metal’ is collected and sent to the recycling stream for reuse, over and over again. That’s one nice thing about metals. They are re-used many times without loss in strength.
DID YOU KNOW?
It is amazing to know that 97% of scrap cars are re-used. The tires go into making a myriad of new products from welcome mats to playground rubber ‘crumb’! There are always new construction going one. I was in Toronto on Saturday and noticed a brand new building, about 3 blocks away from Union station. The trend is to demolish a low building and put something gigantic in its place. You’d be lucky to see a few beams of sun in the Toronto’s downtown core.

ADORABLE DOGGIE BEDS: I have seen doggie beds made from old tires. Years ago, they kind of looked dorky. Lots of creative people out there in cyberspace have mastered the “UP-CYCLED” doggie bed. Impressive! They are really top of the line in my books. When I looked at the commercial beds, I was surprised to see they were about $90 to $250. WOW! You can make your own fabulous doggies bed for a fist full of dollars. Had to say it. One of my favorite movies. But, it’s true. Here are a few varieties of doggie beds. I hope you will take the time to make one for your pet, or make one for a friend who has a dog. You can use stuffing from an old blanket. The foam rubber may run $20 or get scraps at a warehouse or remnant sale at ‘Fabric Land’. Foam chips are good fillers. Stuff it tight. Look around at garage sales. If you don’t want to sew, use an old pillow or stuffed a big pillow case -or- an old sweater. It does not have to be fancy. The most important idea is that your pet is comfortable. You need enough padding to support the dog’s weight in comfort.

Take a look at these great beds. The white one is padded all around.

WHAT KIND OF DOGGIE BEDS DO YOU HAVE?
My sister’s (medium-sized) dog goes in a big crate at night in the master bedroom. During the day, she sleeps on the carpets in the house. Usually the TV room, Wherever there are people around. She will plop herself on the floor near your feet. True to the adage “man’s best friend”! Missy had been abandoned. She is a mix of a Bernese mountain dog and a mystery dog.  She is adorable with one good, sharp eye. And, always bringing you a toy when you walk in the door.
REASONS WHY YOU NEED A DOGGIE BED

  • Insulation
    Dog beds keep your dog off the cold, drafty floor year-round. In the wintertime especially, many dogs love to curl up in a nesting-type bed,  providing warmth for both comfort and good health.
  • Privacy & security
    Beds give your dog just-for-me places throughout your home to retreat to whenever necessary. She’ll love having one or more places to call her very own.
  • Cushioning for joints and bones
    A soft place to lay is especially important for older, arthritic, or overweight dogs.Some dogs need extra joint support and comfort.
  • Increased control over loose hair & dander
    Dog beds hold shed hair and dander. Have at least two cushions. One to use and one to wash.
  • Injury prevention
    Dog beds help prevent injuries by keeping your dog from jumping up to and down from high furniture. This is especially beneficial for smaller breeds and older dogs.
  • Protection, comfort & security for outdoor dogs
    Dogs who spend large amounts of time outdoors need a bed as much as – or more than – inside dogs.

SWEATER BED
This sweater bed can be tucked into your recycled tire bed. Very nice!

FULL CIRCLE
I could not resist the doggie bowl. The tire keeps the bowl from sliding around.  If you can get a small motorcycle tire or a spare ‘donut’ tire, it would work. You can still use a regular sized tire. Or, make a ‘custom’ doggie tire water bowl by  slitting the tire and fastening the sides with grommets or screws to get your perfect size. That works too. Whatever energy you have will determine your choices. If you have a St. Bernard like I do, place 4 legs on some plywood ( or an old stool) under the tire to raise it up.
