Environmental Policy

Choices that beautify the Franklin area, promote sustainability, and protect the health of our environment are important to Grove Street Auto Repair.

Choosing to keep your automobile properly maintained will help you lower emissions and improve fuel economy. If those things are important to you, please call us before you purchase your next vehicle so we can help you make the most environmentally and economically sound purchase.

In our auto repair shop, we make choices wherever we can to promote sustainability and reduce waste. Below are a few of the actions we have taken to become a green shop:

  • Installing energy efficient lighting to reduce energy consumption.
  • We recover leftover energy in used engine oil by recycling it for use in heaters.
  • We receive a TON of cardboard and we have a separate recycling container so that those boxes don’t end up in a landfill.
  • When we replace any parts on your vehicle made of steel or aluminum, we collect the worn out parts and recycle them properly.
  • We collect all vehicle fluids.
  • We are able to recycle engine oil, manual transmission fluid, brake fluid, power steering fluid, automatic transmission fluid, and diesel fuel for use as heating fuel or to be refined back into usable products.
  • We recycle coolant to be refined back into new coolant.
  • Air conditioning refrigerant is recovered and saved for future use.
  • Any other fluids that we are not able to separate or use are collected by a proper hazardous waste removal company.

We do our absolute best and take seriously the responsibility of the fluids we work with. We understand the challenges facing our planet at this time and want to be part of those who are doing what they can to help. We encourage you to do the same and welcome any ideas or input on how we can improve in this area.
