We are on the road today, to Barron, Wisconsin.
We will be visiting Kadinger's Salvage and Recycling.
September of 2013 we toured Kadinger's for a school field trip.
I learned so much. I was so surprised how much recycling is done with cars and trucks.
Tires in good shape are priced and sold to motorists.
Other tires are retreaded...reducing waste.
Waste oil, drained from vehicles, is re-refined and reused as commercial lubricant or heating oil...saving energy.
Good batteries are sold. While damaged batteries are taken to a battery recycler.
Reuseable parts are cleaned and readied for sale. For example radio, engine, automatic transmission, rotor, windshield, suspension, door, radiator....
What remains of the vehicle is processed to recover valuable metals: iron, steel, aluminum, saving our natural resources.
This machine has a huge magnet on it.
It was so fun to watch it work.
The boys could not wait for this part.
Can you hear my boys yelling "Cool"
Already to be recycled.
As we were walking out from watching the E-Z CRUSHER, my husband spotted this ol' ambulance.
He thought it would make a fun car to do a road trip in.
If you missed my post Wednesday check out my dream car.
Have a great weekend.
Thank you for coming along today.
