Wish you could recycle your car? [ARTICLE]

Author: Suzie Vance, EnviroPerks

EnviroPerks doesn’t just want to incentivize you for recycling, we also want to be your source of information for things green and recycling in general. We tell you how to recycle food packaging, food scraps, how to reuse household furniture, but we haven’t told you yet how you can recycle your car!

No matter where you live, you can donate your car to benefit your local chapter of Wheels For Wishes, a car donation and recycling program that benefits Make-A- Wish® Greater Virginia. Make-A- Wish. The vehicles they receive are either auctioned to new owners or recycled, and the proceeds from their sale stay local and benefit your local Make-A- Wish chapter. Wheels For Wishes is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit car donation program established to benefit charities such as the local chapters of Make-A- Wish®. Since their founding in 2009, Wheels For Wishes has donated over 25 million dollars to the chapters of Make- A-Wish helping them grant thousands and thousands of wishes for children across the country who have been diagnosed with life-threatening medical conditions.

Wheels For Wishes

How it works? You can donate cars, trucks, motorcycles, SUVs, RVs, and even boats.

The vehicle donation program lets you:

  • Receive a charitable tax deduction
  • Eliminate the hassle of selling your car
  • Contribute to the green movement by recycling your car
  • Donate almost any vehicle regardless of whether it is running or not
  • Receive fast, free pick-up and towing of your donated vehicle
  • Help give a child in your community a wish to look forward to

Norfolk, Richmond, and Chesapeake are just a few of the cities in the greater Virginia area where you are able to donate an unwanted vehicle and receive free pick-up or towing of that vehicle. Recycle your car here!
