Founded in 1988, AARDA brings together over eighty-five Alberta-based businesses, all leaders in implementing eco-friendly recycling practices. Our members are dedicated to maintaining high environmental standards, significantly contributing to improving our industry, our communities, and the province of Alberta.
Our vision is centred around a robust and sustainable automotive recycling industry. Our core mission involves recycling and repurposing components from vehicles that have reached the end of their operational life. This conserves valuable resources used in vehicle production and operation and aligns with our goal of educating consumers about the environmental and economic benefits of choosing recycled green parts. Through this, we collectively contribute to the health of our planet.
One of our key responsibilities includes carefully removing and safely disposing of hazardous substances found in end-of-life vehicles, such as mercury and other toxic chemicals. This essential step not only safeguards our environment but also allows for recycling vehicle steel into new, functional materials.
We are always looking for new members who resonate with our values and objectives. If you're an automotive recycler in Alberta, we invite you to explore our membership options on our website. Additionally, stakeholders and partners interested in joining our cause can become Associate members through our contact page. For customers needing dependable auto parts, we recommend selecting from the list of AARDA-affiliated businesses available on our website.
At AARDA, our passion lies in continuously raising the bar for automotive recycling and dismantling standards. We are committed to innovation and improvement in our field. We invite you to join us in making a meaningful difference in the industry and contributing positively to our environment.
