Green Business Designation
Bron’s Automotive has received a ”Green Business” designation from the Thurston County Chamber of Commerce. We are a very eco-friendly shop and take every precaution against polluting our water and land. We also recycle oil and other fluids, cardboard and metal parts.
Why are we “green?”
- We recycle all old fluids, used oil, oil filters, coolant, brake fluid, batteries, fluorescent bulbs, etc
- We recycle cardboard, metal auto parts, paper, printing cartridges, bottles and cans etc.
- We do a courtesy inspection every time a vehicle is in that includes inflating tires to the correct pressure, thus increasing fuel mileage and tire life.
- We are certified and have the equipment to work on air conditioning systems without releasing refrigerant into the atmosphere.
- We educate customers to know that having the Check Engine light on means that the vehicle is emitting more pollutants than it should, and we have the equipment and expertise to repair the vehicle so that the engine runs correctly, thereby saving fuel and reducing carbon footprint.
- We inform customers when their vehicle has a fluid leak and educate them so they know that any leak from their vehicle if not repaired, will end up in our streams and Puget Sound. This is the rainbow sheen you see in parking places during rain. We encourage the repair of these leaks.
- Our parts washer has a means of extracting the oil that results from the cleaning of parts, which can then be recycled. After the water is evaporated, the dirt can be removed and discarded.
- We perform engine tune-ups and fuel injector cleaning services that result in cleaner running engines that use less fuel that before the services
