Recycling is fun and full of benefits for creating a greener world. It’s easy to do, and it’s one minor change in your routine that can help to change the world for the better.

At Wheels For Wishes, we practice recycling every day, with every donation we take in. Our vehicle donation program accepts donated cars, trucks, SUVs, RVs, motorcycles, or boats, and helps turn them into wishes for local children. Earned proceeds from auctioning or recycling automobiles benefit Make-A-Wish. Not only does a donated vehicle help to grant a wish for a local child, but a donated automobile can also be recycled and reused to create new vehicles.

Recycling is fun, so switch up your daily routine and start sorting your recyclables. During your spring cleaning and organizing, consider starting your recycling routine with a car donation to Wheels For Wishes, benefiting Make-A-Wish.
