Who We Are?
SAFETY & ENVIRONMENTAL
“Auto Parts City implemented eco-friendly protocols and goes above and beyond the normal industry standards. It starts with draining the fluids in every vehicle and recycling those fluids to heat our buildings, fuel our tow trucks or resell at a discount to our customers. Our facilities utilize top of the line catchment and filtration systems to protect the environment of our surrounding area. Environmental consulting conducts yearly safety and environmental audits on all locations to ensure compliance. Auto Parts City continues to set the “Green” standard in auto recycling.”
Our facilities are kept clean and eco-friendly by employing the highest standards we can. We start by draining all fluids for every car we get. All the fluids that we get from the cars are either recycled and used in-house or recycled and sold at a discounted price to our customers. The government has set the standard for recycling facilitys to abide by and we take it upon ourselves to go above and beyond those standards to ensure that our auto recycling yards have the least amount of environmental impact as possible.
We’ve installed many environmental controls in our facilities to ensure that no fluids or runoffs get into our surrounding area. We have installed Underground Triple trap catchment systems, First Flush rainwater filtration, and use oil eating enzymes to remove oil and chemicals from water on our facilities. Then we have our stormwater get filtered sequentially by two different pounds and meadow. Our environmental and maintenance staff continually monitor and test the system to verify all the water that comes out of our facilities into the surrounding area is clean and naturally filtered
All metals removed from vehicles are sorted, stored and sold under cover or indoors to make sure that minimal amounts of rust take place in our facilities. This includes mercury, which is removed and recycled. All our reclaimed tires are stored indoors to prevent disease-carrying insect breeding. VET Environmental consulting conducts yearly safety and environmental audits on all locations to ensure our compliance. Auto Parts City continues to try and set the “Green” standard in auto recycling.
