Ray’s Auto Parts first achieved Indiana Clean Yard status in 2012 and obtained recertification in 2014. The Clean Yard-Gold Level Award is the Indiana Department of Environmental Management’s highest award for environmental stewardship.

U-Pull-&-Pay of Indianapolis, a self-serve used auto parts yard, also received the award.

The Indiana Department of Environmental Management, along with the Automotive Recyclers of Indiana, established the Indiana Clean Yard program in 2009 to reduce environmental threats posed by vehicles stockpiled in salvage yards.
