What happens to functioning car parts after someone's decided to trash their vehicle and buy or lease a new one? Unfortunately, many reusable pieces become mountains of waste in landfills if they're not recycled properly. But one organization aims to bring together auto recyclers across Ontario to limit waste and promote the use of quality recycled green parts.
The Ontario Automotive Recyclers Association (OARA), which was founded in 1992, keeps auto recyclers "informed and involved with input and information into current industry trends and government legislative initiatives that affect auto recyclers." If you're interested in learning more about the OARA, you're in luck -- the organization's annual trade show and convention will take place March 29 - 31 in Toronto, Ontario.
Unfortunately, if you're an auto recycler looking to exhibit at the show, it's too late. According to Collision Repair magazine, all spots have already been filled. Steve Fletcher, OARA's Executive Director, told Collision Repair that this year, exhibit spots filled up quicker than ever. "We always sell out every year but never this soon," Fletcher said.
For those looking to attend, there's still time to register. Attendees can look forward to "constructive knowledge sharing and features educational seminars, presentations and industry round tables combined with interactive social events and a busy tradeshow floor." Plus, promotional bags and other giveaways will be provided!
