Hills pledge to put the RE back into Recycling

 
Where and whenever possible we will reuse functional vehicle components. Through our recycled spares and parts business we will reintroduce these parts into natural use wherever possible. As our business grows we will reinvest in new recycling methods to make sure we remain at the forefront of vehicle recycling. Our aim is to reverse the amount of waste that is consigned to land fill sites and how it impacts on your environment.

As result of our pledge we urge the public to recalculate the cost of running their car in these times where the government is only increasing the cost of owning a vehicle. By utilising our recycled parts whenever your car needs them we guarantee that you will reduce the cost of car ownership.

But don't worry, whatever is not reused, will be recycled, reformed and resold back into industry as raw materials for future production.

Help us to recharge your environment through careful recycling.
Go Green with Hills and make BIG savings!
 
By sourcing parts from Hills you will not only be saving money but you will also be helping the environment by reducing the environmental impact made from producing new parts.
