Disposing old parts properly

Hi All,

Just changed my water pump, thermostat, and hoses. I'm just wondering is it ok to dump those parts in the trash or I need to take them somewhere like a recycling center.

I'm not sure what you can do with the rubber hoses but I save all of my metal parts and drop them at a metal recycling center. I leave them in a box in the garage until it's full then make a run. There are plenty of places that do metal recycling and depending on your parts, you might even get a few bucks back if they are aluminum. Do the right thing and keep them out of the trash when possible.

I just want to make sure because I went to autozone and they told me just dump in the trash. I'll take them to a recycling center.

00bmw323, you are welcome to come to pick them up if you want.
