From Youtube.com: 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.
