Car Recycling

From Car Recycling – Did you know that cars can be recycled? Join Curiosity Quest Goes Green host, Joel Greene as he witnesses the massive power of a car crusher! We begin at a facility that collects old cars. The first step is to pick them up with a huge claw and dump them onto a conveyor belt where they get fed into a giant blender that reduces a vehicle down to chunks of scrap. These scrap pieces are then separated out to various piles of metals, plastics, glass, etc. Next, Greene follows the metal to a steel mill next door, as he watches the most visual process of smelting metal and turning it into liquid lava.

  • “Early on I realized that I had to hire people smarter and more qualified than I was in a number of different fields, and I had to let go of a lot of decision-making. I can’t tell you how hard that is. But if you’ve imprinted your values on the people around you, you can dare to trust them to make the right moves.” ~ Howard Schultz, Starbucks CEO
  • “I believe life is a series of near misses. A lot of what we ascribe to luck is not luck at all. It’s seizing the day and accepting responsibility for your future. It’s seeing what other people don’t see and pursuing that vision.” ~ Howard Schultz, Starbucks CEO
