It’s taken a long time for us to know that some of the things we’ve done in the past aren’t the right practises for maintaining a stable climate. About everybody now understands the importance of incorporating environmentally sustainable activities into everything we do. This is true for car repair shops just as much as it does for our homes. Feel free to visit their website at InTown Auto Care for more details.
How will an auto repair shop lessen its negative environmental impact?
Here are some healthy car shop standards to follow:
Reuse and recycle
Antifreeze, oils, lubricants, air conditioning refrigerant, tyres, and oil filters are all readily recyclable and frequently needed by statute, so what about cardboard, cloth, plastics, brass, light bulbs, bottles, and other things that are too easy to throw away?
Sorting anything takes some time, but if you have a structure in place, it just takes a few minutes every day.
Core for Returns
Become a return centre for things like discarded car lubricating oils, filters, antifreeze, used plastic oil and antifreeze cans, and all forms of batteries, in addition to recycling your own shop’s used goods. During working hours, we happily welcome liquids in sealed tanks up to 20 litres in our store. It’s just common sense, and it saves consumers the hassle of trying to go out of their way to get rid of these things.
Oil that has been recycled
Although we don’t disagree with the approach or the purpose, we’re not persuaded it’s a feasible choice for today’s advanced modern engines used in most automobiles. A safer option is to have the waste oil hauled away by a government-approved hauler and used as fuel in vast manufacturing plants. This offers the oil a new lease on life and allows it to be reused responsibly.
Making Good Use of Recycled Materials
We use recycled items where it makes sense, such as recycled engine antifreeze and coolants, where the process follows the requirements of the original equipment maker of the car in which it will be used. This accounts for nearly two-thirds of the coolant we use.
Let’s face it: even though they’re stationary, cars are mobile hazardous waste generators. While we are yet to find a way to reach a near-zero vehicle carbon footprint, it is our duty to mitigate the negative effect as far as possible. The duty is borne equally between the car owner and the shop that services the vehicle. A well-maintained vehicle adds to a neighborhood’s well-being in addition to reducing carbon emissions. A auto repair shop that uses environmentally sustainable methods also contributes to the well-being of the city.
