Retire Your Ride has three fantastic benefits, as we recently described. There, we discussed the competitive bidding process that provides you with the best prices from your local certified recyclers, the collection and payment options we use to aid you, and the rigorous environmental standards in use by all of Retire Your Ride’s CAREC-certified vehicle recyclers.
As a hassle-free and financially rewarding option for Canadians, we created the Retire Your Ride program. According to user feedback on Google, the program has been a huge success thus far. As a company, we take great pride in the positive feedback we receive.
A valid donation is one that meets certain criteria.
For starters, the contribution must be made to a registered charity, which is defined as a charitable organization, public or private foundation that is based in Canada and has been granted formal Canada Revenue Agency registered status. Canadian charity registrations peaked this week at 85,881.
Visit the CRA website (cra-arc.gc.ca) and use the “Charities Search” box on the “Charities and giving” page to see if the organization you’d like to support is officially registered.
Donating to an American charity, on the other hand, may be tax-deductible in the United States.
You’re in luck since the Canada-U.S. tax treaty provides some limited tax relief for donations made by Canadian citizens and corporations to charitable organizations in the United States, although the restrictions are a little complex..
Depending on where you park your car at the end of the road, you can either cause environmental havoc or demonstrate good management of our planet’s resources. The truth is, not everyone deals with end-of-life and accident-damaged vehicles in the same way we do.
Toxic fluids and heavy metals can be leached into the groundwater and soil by scrapyards that acquire cars and smash them for the metal value. It’s incredible. Instead of reusing and recycling materials, they dump them in landfills.
Every end-of-life car should be recycled through ARC organizations’ recyclers. Environmental stewardship has been a hallmark of their current auto recycling procedures. Each car undergoes a meticulous process to ensure maximum reclamation and minimize the environmental effects.
With the proper training and equipment, each car will be treated in an environmentally friendly manner. Our recyclers have been audited by an independent third party to guarantee that their procedures, facilities, and training follow the Canadian Auto Recyclers’ Environmental Code.
