LKQ recycles each used autos to reduce landfill waste, as well as provide low cost alternatives to new car parts. Each vehicle has all of the fluids recycled or reused as well as the Freon, mercury switches and tires. All of the metals are sorted and recycled. LKQ has a rigorous program to reuse all of the auto parts that can be remanufactured such as alternators, starters and air compressors. The remanufacture of these car and truck parts reduces the amount of energy and raw goods needed to manufacture them.
