Recycling in the workplace is fast becoming a priority for all types of businesses. If you run an automotive business of any kind, you will want to be responsible when it comes to recycling car parts and related items, from engine oil to car batteries and other automotive waste.

To ensure that everything is recycled safely and efficiently in your automotive business, it is vital that everyone in your workplace knows how to comply with your company’s recycling policy. One way of making things easier for your staff is by using specific car recycling signage. Our car recycling signs are available in a variety of sizes and materials, with many featuring easily recognisable recycling symbols.

Why Should I Recycle?


Recycling is the best, safest and most responsible option when it comes to disposing of any automotive waste, especially as some of it can be very harmful to the environment. All recycling is important, and everything from old electric tools to car batteries can be recycled. This keeps harmful products and potentially toxic substances out of landfills, protecting the environment and often allowing for materials within the product to be reused.

There are also laws and regulations in place that may affect you and your business. Car batteries, by law, must now be kept out of any general waste system and disposed of responsibly. There are further rules that impact all retail companies. For example, under the Waste Electrical and Electronic (WEEE) Directive, all retailers must now ensure that customers can safely dispose of their electrical equipment when they buy a new item. If you sell and fit car batteries and other car parts or electronic items of any kind, such as car stereos or GPS equipment, you should set up a system to take in and recycle your customers’ old products when you provide them with new ones.

How do you Recycle Automotive/car Parts?


There are a few options that help companies recycle automotive waste and car parts. You can find out where your closest recycling centre for a specific item is and what their policies are on the Recycle Now website. You can use the search bar to look up specific items, such as ‘car batteries’ or ‘engine oil’, and find the nearest place where these can be recycled, along with useful tips. Recycle Now stresses, for example, that engine oil should always be stored in a sealed container and never mixed with any other substance, as this can make it hard to recycle.

Local councils may also offer a collection service for some electronic goods, such as tools and appliances. As you may be aware, there are also services across the UK that recycle old car tyres and who may be happy to collect tyres from your premises.

Which Automotive/Car Parts can be Recycled?


There are many car parts that can be recycled, and you will often find that recycling is in fact the only option, as a lot of items cannot be disposed of along with general rubbish anyway. Here are a few of the automotive products you may use that can be recycled:

  • Engine oil

  • Oil filters

  • Batteries

  • Engines and transmissions

  • Scrap metal

  • Auto glass

  • Electric tools

  • Tyres

  • Pumps

  • Starters and alternators

  • Rubber hoses

  • Plastic parts

  • Mats and carpets


Also bear in mind that if anything around your workplace has an electric plug, charger or battery, there is probably a way to recycle it. This applies to everything from large power tools to the workplace kettle.

What Automotive Recycling Signs do I Need?


The exact signs you will need will depend on the type of work you carry out and the parts you are likely to need to recycle. However, placing clear and relevant recycling signage around your workplace can be a huge help in creating awareness and ensuring employees follow your recycling guidelines.

Pick recycling signs that are strong and durable, and suitable for where they will be. There are weather resistant signs for outside areas, for example. Bear in mind that you are drawing attention to recycling points around your work spaces and throughout the business premises, and pick bigger, bolder signs if this will help. Workplace recycling really can be encouraged and increased with the correct recycling signage.

Depending on the type of work carried out in your company, you may need signs reminding employees and contractors where to leave batteries, tyres, used oil or general automotive waste. Here at Seton, all our car recycling signs support the Government-led Waste & Resources Action Programme (WRAP), and most feature clear and widely recognised recycling symbols.

Where Should Automotive Recycling Signs be Placed?


Recycling signs should be placed around all workspaces and communal areas to inform and remind your staff and visitors of the company policy on recycling car parts and related items. Put material-specific signs on any bins and receptacles designated for those materials. Buy bigger, bolder, recycling signage to indicate areas where larger items can be left for future recycling, such as an area where tyres should be stacked or larger metal parts placed, for transport to scrap metal facilities.

When it comes to actually putting your recycling signage in place, there are several convenient ways to secure your signs around your premises. See our range of sign fixings to choose the best solutions for the workspaces you need to add signage to.
