RASCATS APP converter data program is available exclusively for assay suppliers. More than 10,000 ID numbers at your fingertips and easily accessible from your mobile phone, tablet, or desktop. RAS buys CATS by the piece, either at our buying doors in Rhode Island and Florida, shipping to Rhode Island or Florida, or from a road buyer.

RAS serves as an exclusive U.S. buyback partner of defective Takata airbags for ten automakers (OEMs), covering 23 makes, 145 models, and 16 years of model year coverage. Our extensive relationships with thousands of Auto Recyclers across the U.S. and Canada allows us to introduce and integrate technology so recyclers can instantly identify recalls through the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). Recyclers are financially incentivized with a bounty for each airbag returned.
RAS has played a vital role by providing programs for awareness and education to the auto recycling industry on the identification, removal, packing, and shipping of these defective products. Our supply chain processes thousands of shipments each month as these airbags travel from recovery point to their final destination, where the airbag modules are destroyed. RAS has acquired, verified, and destroyed over 500,000 defective Takata airbags. RAS is proud of its role as a corporate citizen in facilitating the removal of these lethal products out of the salvage network, which ultimately saves lives.
Overall, RAS has evolved into a company that promotes the circular economy and the true essence of Recycling. RAS has supported the Auto Recycling Industry since its inception, attending and sponsoring Trade Shows and Conventions, participating in vendor panels, and advertising dollars for State and National Trade Publications.
