What do we recycle?


We take pride in protecting the environment as best as we can. Our shop recycles automotive components like:

  • Car Batteries
  • Lead Wheel Weights
  • Tires
  • Motor Oil and Refrigerants
  • And More

From metals to fluids, we recycle all types of automotive components and properly dispose of any item that cannot be recycled. Before you discard your tire in a rubbish heap or exchange your headlight for a new one, consider recycling to continue the life cycle of your unneeded items.


How much of a car or truck is recyclable?


While it ultimately depends on the type of vehicle you are driving, most modern vehicles are at least 85% recyclable. In fact, some automotive manufacturers hope to reach 90% levels in the near future.

Because the technology exists to reuse and repurpose so many parts in an automobile, you have the potential to greatly impact the environment by going green with your vehicle.


How do we recycle different automotive parts?


Green Repair Shop in Allentown, PA

There are many different parts to your vehicle and a variety of ways to recycle them. For example:

  • Automotive Fluids into Heat: Your vehicle’s old oil and other automotive fluids can be used to provide heat in buildings.
  • Anti-Freeze into Anti-Freeze: We send antifreeze to special recycling plants that break the fluid down into its original components. Once broken, the elements are turned into anti-freeze again to help another vehicle run.
  • Tires into Tires & Material: If your used tires aren’t worn greatly, they can be retreaded and used by another driver. If your tires are completely finished, they can be sent to a recycling plant and turned into road material or even used in the construction of buildings.

Don't burn your tires or casually discard your old oil. Help us create a healthy, sustainable environment by recycling.


Do remanufactured parts help the environment?


Yes. Using remanufactured parts is a great way to reduce waste and make use of parts that can provide your vehicle with miles and miles of use. When a part on a car fails, it doesn’t mean all of the components are faulty. The faulty components are replaced and the remanufactured part becomes available for use.

Ask us about using remanufactured parts in your vehicle. They are often less expensive and can be a reliable part of your vehicle. When you use remanufactured parts in your vehicle, you also help cut down on waste.
