The Alberta Automotive Recyclers and Dismantlers Association (AARDA) is a group of more than fifty Alberta businesses, committed to leading the way for our industry in terms of environmentally responsible recycling practices, and maintaining awareness of industry trends, issues and opportunities in order to achieve more positive outcomes.
Our vision is a vibrant and strong industry and the achievement of high environmental standards that benefit our members, customers and Albertans generally.
AARDA’s principal aim is to conserve the valuable resources involved in producing and operating the vehicles driven by Albertans today when they become damaged or inoperable, by recycling the parts. AARDA also works to inform consumers about the environmental and economic benefits of using green recycled parts so that they can contribute to this enrichment.
When recycling vehicles that have reached the end of their lives, our member businesses remove and arrange for the proper disposal of substances within them that would otherwise be toxic to the environment. This includes mercury, oils, gasoline, refrigerants and battery chemicals to name a few as well as tires and other materials that must be removed so that the steel bodies can be safely shredded, then melted back to re-usable steel.
AARDA seeks to work for the benefit of its members and all industry stakeholders to promote a ‘greener’ and more successful automotive recycling industry in Alberta.
If you are an Alberta automotive recycler, we want you as a member and ask that you look at our membership page and consider joining us in our efforts. If you’re a stakeholder working with our industry, we invite you to consider becoming an Associate member by contacting AARDA (see Contact Us). If you’re a customer in need of reliable and safe parts, we ask that you shop at an AARDA member business listed on this website.
At AARDA, we’re about continuous improvement in recycling and dismantling!
