Fun Fact: a large portion, around 90%, of every vehicle on Australian Roads is able to be recycled. Most of the individual components of a vehicle are able to be recycled, usually, if the part is in good working order. You might be able to scoop up a bargain at your local spare parts specialists and auto wreckers, Perth Parts, servicing the whole country from a warehouse in Perth. Reusing spare parts, whether you are picking up a new transmission, or a body panel has a secondary benefit. Not only are you saving money, you are also helping the environment by reducing demand on manufacturers for the brand-new part. READ MORE
