Non-Profit Car Donation & Auto Recycling in Colorado

Help end the emission

Fill out the form, and let's provide clear air for all around us in Colorado today

Clear the Air Foundation (CTAF) was founded in 2007 to facilitate the reduction of polluting emissions by taking dilapidated vehicles and recycling them, then donating the money as scholarships. While most of our cars come as trade-ins from car dealerships and are valued at under $1,000, we accept cars in all conditions from any source. In addition to this, we cover the cost of transportation and most of the paperwork. In this manner, we’ve been able to harvest 4,353 vehicles and keep them from further polluting our air. CTAF is a nonprofit organization that really cares about Colorado’s air quality.


Colorado Breathes Easy with Clear the Air Foundation’s Car Recycling

When we recycle a vehicle, it’s parted out. This is how we generate revenue to give back to the community. But not all the parts are sold. The engine block is always destroyed, rendering the vehicle inoperable. All the vehicles that go through our auto recycling are entered into the National Motor Vehicle Title Information System as ‘scrapped’; ensuring that titles can no longer be issued for the Vehicle Identification Number.

Car Donation Is Easy With Clear the Air Foundation

To begin the car donation process, a donor contacts us with all the pertinent information about the vehicle: make, model, VIN, year, and location. We then reach out to a recycler to haul away the vehicle, at no expense to the donor. The recycler pays us fair market value for the automobile, and then it is liquidated. This money is used primarily for scholarships, which are given to Automotive Technician students in Colorado.
