Parts for Carts is now Amigo Recycling Center
Amigo Mobility merges Parts for Carts to form Amigo Recycling Center.
In 2009, Amigo Mobility started Parts for Carts as a way to keep motorized shopping carts out of the landfill and strive for a greener earth. After nine years, they have recycled more than 40,000 carts and retrievers used in grocery stores. In 2021, Parts for Carts was merged as part of Amigo Mobility’s company and the name was re-branded to Amigo Recycling Center.
Motorized carts can be disposed for a variety of reasons. Accidental damage, upgrading to a new fleet and wear and tear over time are common circumstances that are cause for retirement. Although important aspects of the cart may be damaged beyond repair, typically other parts can be salvaged for replacement use.
Currently thousands of carts and retrievers are purchased and disassembled by Amigo each year. Once disassembled, parts are tested, cleaned, re-certified and then sold to service providers at a lower cost. This not only keeps carts out of landfills but allows Amigo to test and improve aspects of their products.
