A local company is recycling car parts to help preserve the environment. 

In honor of Earth Day, Gary’s U-Pull It along with Don’s Auto Mall in Kirkwood are donating a dollar to plant a tree for every car part sold.

Gary’s Vice President Steve Barkwell says most people don’t realize that cars are actually the most recyclable product in the world.

He says more than 86% of a vehicle can be reused. 

Barkwell says the tree planting initiative perfectly aligns with their goal of conservation. 

Barkwell estimates that between 5 to 6 hundred trees will be planted as a result of this year’s Earth Day celebration.
