The automotive industry is already a leader in waste reduction and recycling, with 85% of the average weight of an end of life vehicle being either reusable or recoverable.
However, automotive businesses still struggle with an increasing amount of waste, including tyres, cardboard, glass, and plastics.
At LSM, we help automotive industry customers across the UK manage their waste as efficiently as possible. We work with a range of automotive facilities including car dealerships, tyre centres, car parts manufacturers.
How to Streamline Recycling Waste in the Automotive Industry
Car manufacturers and automotive facilities already recover and recycle car parts to prevent waste and lower costs. However, managing and boosting recycling of tyres, cardboard, and plastics can help the automotive industry better manage recycling waste and the risks associated with it. Better tyre recycling, in particular, can help the automotive industry reach its goal of being a zero-waste industry.
Inefficient waste management practices for car manufacturers and automotive stores can lead to:
- Higher waste management and recycling costs
- Increased environmental pollution
- Lost storage or operational space in warehouses and manufacturing facilities
- Labour inefficiencies in core processes for manufacturers, automotive repair shops, etc.
At LSM, we help businesses across the automotive industry streamline waste that falls outside their reuse or recoverable programs. Our waste baling solutions include:
