This is a traffic jam

Somewhat off the regular beat, but I found this image fascinating.

According to the article from Green Source magazine, 27 million cars are recovered for recycling annually around the world. Much of the material is recycled, but the material that is not—called auto shredder residue—amounts to about 5 million tons a year, and this, according to EPA, finds its way to landfills.

The image above  is an aerial photograph of an auto salvage location in Ayer Massacusetts. Annually over 10 million automobiles are recycled in the USA alone, making cars the number one recycled product in this fair land.
