Let your old vehicle become a new opportunity for a person with autism

The Centre for Autism Services Alberta is working with Car Heaven to responsibly recycle old vehicles, which will raise funds to help individuals in our community affected by autism. The program partners with government and environmental organizations concerned about air quality and the proper disposal of old vehicles.

Your donation will go directly towards services that support and improve the quality of life of individuals with autism. Your generosity will help send a child to summer camp, enable a teen to develop the skills to make friends or help an adult find his first job. Your donation will make a difference in the life of a child, teen or adult with autism.

Vehicles donated through Car Heaven, an initiative of Automotive Recyclers of Canada, are responsibly recycled. All hazardous components are removed and disposed of outside of Canada's landfills. The steel is recycled and any parts that can be re-used will be salvaged.

Donors receive a charitable tax receipt from the Centre, as well as a free tow from anywhere accessible to a tow truck. Funds from the vehicle donation program go directly towards supporting individuals with autism.

To donate your end of life vehicle or for more information please call 1-877-755-6272 or visit: Car Heaven

Please note: Car Heaven picks up complete vehicles (no missing parts) in most areas of Alberta. Please call 1-877-755-6272 to verify that there is an authorized recycler in your area. Vehicles do not have to be running, but they must be accessible to a tow truck, which means that a vehicle can't be underground or in alleys.
