The Automotive Service Association of Arizona (ASA-AZ) has announced that three member shops have been certified as "Green Shops" in partnership with the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality’s Green Shop Program.
This is a voluntary program for environmentally friendly shops in the state of Arizona. The following shops join the list of 27 ASA shops that have been certified:
Action Automotive, Peoria, Ariz. Tom O’Kane, owner
Firestone Complete Auto Care Centers
One Stop Automotive, Tucson, Ariz. Randall Miller, owner
To become certified, auto shops must accumulate at least 300 points on a checklist in various categories such as cleaning and degreasing and energy conservation created by ADEQ’s Pollution Prevention Program. The program requires auto shops to use low-hazard, low-pollution solvents or water-based cleaners; recycle waste fluids and oil; use energy-efficient lighting and air conditioning, among other requirements.
