Environmentally friendly operations are important to our community and to our business so we choose to use the PPG Global Refinishing System with its latest waterborne paint system that is more workplace and environmentally friendly, reducing the emissions and waste water from the paint and paint preparation processes. Our staff use dry-sanding methods with vacuum extraction in order to further eliminate waste water, with all dust being collected and disposed of correctly. All waste liquids including coolant, oil, paint and thinners are collected and disposed of by an accredited EPA agent, while we recycle all materials including cardboard, plastic, metal and glass. Where air conditioning systems are discharged, all gases are recovered by qualified technicians. It is important to provide quality repairs while remaining environmentally conscious and being a local family-owned business, we choose to consider our local community and environment.
