Star Auto Dismantlers is against the dumping of heavy metals and toxins from vehicles
Some supposedly responsible auto wreckers pay for vehicles expressly for parts, and then either leave them to rust in junkyards or crush them without the vehicles being adequately depolluted. Some simply pour oil and brake fluid down the drain. Star Auto Dismantlers is against the dumping of vehicle metal, rubber and waste fluids that leach heavy metals and toxins into the earth.
