How do junk yards keep the fluids in the cars from polluting the environment?

    Not all, but some junkyards collect fluids when they recieve the vehicle. That is that they collect brake and transmission fluid, antifreeze, batteries, gasoline and motor oil from the cars. These fluids typically get stored on-site in 55 gallon drums or tanks. However, if stored improperly these fluids become hazardous contaminants and potential threat to ground water quality.

    As for the battery, they are taken out and stored on pallets to avoid leakage. Those that do not are sent to a reclaimer.

    Check out the website below to see the best ways junkyards can manage these fluids.
